Fabric Rosette Tutorial

Hey y’all! I gave this guest post over on Ask Anna last year and totally forgot to share it over here! These little fabric rosettes are so easy to make and are great for crafts-I’ve used them on wreaths and even made barrettes with them!

The supplies are simple: a hot glue gun and fabric scraps. Here I have used the end of a remnant 44″ long cut to about 1-2 inches wide. This is not an exact science, feel free to experiment with different lengths and widths of fabric to change the final dimensions of your rosettes.

Okay, lets get to work!

1. Find the end of your fabric and fold in half with your pattern on the outside. (Please excuse my horrible hangnails-I’m a nail-biter!)

2. Begin rolling your fabric tightly to form the center of your rosette.

3. After the rosette center is the size you want (I rolled mine about four times around) start forming your petals by folding the fabric down at a 90 degree angle.

4. Twist the tail of fabric as you wrap it until it is again parallel with the floor. Secure with a dot of hot glue.

5. Continue to fold and twist securing every few petals with hot glue as needed.

6. Stop twisting when you have about 1-2″ of fabric left at the end.

7. Fold the tail of fabric over and glue secure to the base of your rosette. I like to use a bit of glue here to ensure it does not unravel. Don’t worry about the strings from the fabric edges-it adds to the appeal of these little rosettes.

That’s it! You’re all done! Once you get the hang of it these are super easy and fast to make. These look great on necklaces, headbands, and so much more. I used these particular rosettes on my  burlap monogram wreath.

    I love these! I’ve made a few fabric rosettes but your fabric choice is beautiful! Found you through Practically Functional. Happy Wednesday!

      Thanks Angela! They can be used for so many different things, I actually learned the technique with paper so you can do it that way too!

    Haha, I was just over at the TT&J link party and saw this post. I though, hmmm that looks familiar. :) I’m glad you finally got to share it with your readers!

      LOL Anna! I usually share a guest post a few weeks later but this one totally slipped my mind! My son had a minor surgery last week that took me out of “creating” for a while so I had to pull it out due to desperation!

    I love these! I have been trying to make some here recently for a project I’m working on, but I have just been twisting and rolling. I will have to try the folding and twisting. Looks more like petals then mine do. Thanks for sharing your tutorial. Going to give these a try.
