Ric-Rac is a flat narrow braid woven in zigzag form. It’s usually made of cotton or polyester. It’s mainly used as trimming for clothing or other embroidered material. This tutorial by Zuliblu Crafts will teach you how to make a Ric-Rac flower that can be used for a wide variety of DIY projects!

Tools And Materials Needed:

1. Strips of Ric-Rac
2. Needle and Thread
3. Craft Glue
4. Beads/Crystals
5. Plain Hair Clips
6. Epoxy (E-6000)


1. Be careful when you’re handling a needle and thread. Do this project in good lighting to avoid any injuries. Keep small children away from your work area.

2. If you want to make smaller flowers, use thinner and shorter strips of Ric-Rac. It would also look aesthetically pleasing if you combine different-sized flowers for your projects.

3. For bags that are made of fabric, you can embellish them with these flowers. You can also add beads to make your bags look prettier.

4. You can also decorate your spiral notebooks by giving them a more personalized feminine touch. Use a retro-looking floral wrapping paper and cut it according to size. Cover the notebook with this and stick on different scrapbook items. Add pieces of Ric-Rac flowers to complete the project.

5. If you want to make your own gift box, why don’t you make it look extra special by sticking the box with different Ric-Rac flowers? Line the inside of the box with Japanese wrapping paper and a bunch of stuff that your friend would like to get, such as chocolates, candies, books, makeup/beauty products and other knick-knacks. You can even write a letter and seal the envelope with a Ric-Rac flower!

6. Try making your own T-shirt Ric-Rac bracelets! Use strips of an old T-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up. Braid a few strings and add some beads if you want. Take small pieces of Ric-Rac Flowers and stitch them onto the bracelet. If you plan to make your own anklet, use longer strips of T-shirt material.

7. If you have a friend who loves to do a bunch of craft projects, make tons of Ric-Rac flowers and store them in a jar. Place this jar in a small basket along with other arts and crafts materials.
