Rolled fabric rosettes are such an inexpensive and beautiful way to decorate your homemade crafts! This is an easy, beginner tutorial for how to make your own fabric rosettes and other flowers!
YOU WILL NEED:
Strips of fabric: The ones I used for this yellow flower is about 2 inches wide and somewhere around a foot long.
Glue gun/glue sticks
Now, get your felt. Cut it to about the size you want your flower to be.
Take your fabric strip and fold it in half.
Fold over one corner…
Now pinch the ends together….
And glue down the pointed end of your fabric onto the center of the felt. This will be the center of your flower.
Start to twist your fabric around….
And as you twist around, glue around the edge to secure it down. The looser you twist the fabric, the more shabby the flower will look. I twisted mine pretty tightly for this flower because I was putting it on a headband.
Keep twisting and gluing as you go…
and when you get to the edge of your felt, stop.
You can either just glue and tuck it under the edge of the flower, or glue the overhang to the back of the felt. (less risk of getting a glue gun burn this way!)
Now, trim around the edge.
If you want to put a button or some sort of embellishment on your flower, just add a little pool of hot glue…
and stick on your button!
These flowers are seriously SOOO versatile! You can put them on ANYTHING and they look cute! Here are some examples of things I put them on!
