I've always loved how delicate and precious cotton flowers are, and how they can become a lovely piece of decor for the house.
I have a beautiful wreath made of dried cotton flowers that I often add in background as a photo prop when taking pictures of my amigurumis.
...so why not making this adorable decoration the center piece of my photo this time?
Let's learn how to create this graceful flower together!
