THESE ARE SO EASY FRIENDS! As in even my dollar store glue gun pulled these off beautifully. (I’m serious, this crafty gal only owns a dollar store glue gun. One day I plan to “play with the big boys” and get myself a real one.)
Cut a piece of fabric anywhere from 12'” – 24” long and 1/2” – 1” wide. (no rules on this) You can cut just one strand or fool around with the effects 2 strands has on the rosette. (as shown below)
Tie a KNOT at the very bottom. That will be the center of your flower.
Start loosely (or tightly for a different look) wrapping around and twisting the fabric. Add hot glue every once in a while to keep the twisting together and continue making the flower.
Cut out two circles of felt that will be used on the backside of your flower. Hot glue one piece to the back. With the second piece cut a tiny hole in it and thread your bobby pin through. Next glue that piece over the felt already attached.
Can you believe it? You’re done! They took me around 3 minutes a piece to make! (Can you understand why I am so giddy?)
I don’t know, I just assumed that it was really hard to make. You can embellish these with feathers, buttons, glitter – anything!
You can also use these on lamp shades or other home décor (obviously you won’t need the bobby pin!) Or put them on hats or a t-shirt to Jazz things up a little bit.
My kids neighbor friend enjoyed being the model for this one. Did I mention she has gorgeous raven brown hair down to her waist!
These would make great gifts for your artsy friend or for a little girl.
Jackie from EveryPrettyThing (her etsy shop) did a cute rose by cutting chiffon fabric in circles and then buring the edges to form the curl on the petals!

How about using the rosettes on FRAMES or PILLOWS? The creativity just doesn't stop!
Enjoy! Till next time I become Giddy with a project!
