Decorative decorations (such as flowers) can be made of corrugated paper or durable foil if you do not have extra fabric. The foil is resistant to getting wet from water, but strong foil suitable for sewing can be found in gift packs:

Here is a list all that is needed for work: - Thick copper wire (you can take 2 pieces); - Thin wire; - Needle; - Old belt (we have a black leather belt);- Medium sized beads of black color (suitable for belt color); - Napkins,stapler and (or) durable foil (we have gift wrapping foil); - Scissors; - Black thread. Getting started, we picked up a suitable wire and belt. The thickness of the wire is 0.2 cm., And the belt was quite thin, comfortable, and did not have time to spoil yet. Unlike conventional fabric, its fabric will not roll in after cutting:

We decided to take two thick wires for work. Having measured the necessary length for each of them, we join them together, twisting with thin wire:

Now we need to cut a piece from the belt a little longer than the wire (about 1 cm.) to leave a fabric that would hide the wire inside the fabric of the finished rim:

After that, about sharpening the wire with a fabric of the belt, sew its longitudinal sides, bending inward the extra sections (allowance):

Seams with seams best do on the upper side, but not the bottom or side.We will embroider beads on these sites. We need two bags of beads:

We will embroider with beads in two rows; small areas at the bottom can be left for the base.

We embroider in a circle, 3-4 beads in each row:

This way we decorate the entire upper side of the rim. If you have a black felling or a glass bead, they can be added to work; and in the lower part of the bezel you can make two short rows of several beads in the inner side so that the bezel slips worse:

Next, with napkins, we decided to make artificial decorative flowers.

Some time after the holiday, we had a silver durable foil from the gift. And from this foil we decided to make new decorations for the rim and replace them with paper ones:

First, we cut out six shapes in the shape of flowers from a foil of different sizes, after which they were joined together with seams:

In order to give the figures volume, we made seams in a circle in the middle of each of them,and then carefully pulled the thread:
