I make these for me and my daughter! And we wear them on foe headbands like twinkies lol. What you need to do is start off by making several circles out of a silk or satin like material make 5-7 circles each one smaller than the next, and the what I do is I light a candle, any candle will do, and hold the back end of the material (not the edge, the back side od the ends if this makes sense lol) over the flame and it will start to crinkle and kinda move inward like a flower...be super careful because it is so easy to get smokey looking flowers if your in a big hurry....and theeeeeen use some glue or a needle and thread and put the pieces together, from largest to smallest, and embellish with a cluster of rhinestones or pearls!

you kinda answered your own ? - lol! look for a sturdier fabric . . . i recently bought a fabric that's light grey shimmery on one side and solid black on the other and it has good body (not flimsy/droopy like satin) . . . and it works great!

but . . . the downside is that when you get out of the satin fabrics, it gets pricey. this one store let me test the "burn" quality of the fabrics on a scrap piece before i bought it . . . of course, i had to go out of the store to try it!

i use this fabric on the bottom/biggest layers and then mix others as i near the top.

i also sew 2-3 layers together at a time . . . and make a "X" stitch to lightly gather . . . then add 2/3 more layers on. it gives it a bit more dimension, if you like that look. but others, the flat circle is just as nice.

Okay, will look for sturdier fabric. I guess as long as it is polyester it should burn/singe. Thanks.

Has anyone tried singeing taffeta? Wonder if that will work.l
