As promised, today I’m going to feature the fall wreath tutorial. Up first is the rosette tutorial. Please note: I have no idea if this is the ‘correct’ way to make a fabric rosette. I looked at a bunch of pictures of rosettes and made mine according to what worked for me. So if you’ve got a better rosette tutorial, please share! Please also note: I don’t take good pictures. Ever. These are bad. It was late at night. I was watching the Golden Girls. On DVD. All the cool kids are doing it……..
To begin, cut a strip of fabric (I rip mine to give it a more ‘unfinished’ look). The size of your rosette depends on a few things, one of them being the width and length of your fabric strip. The longer and wider your strip, more than likely, the bigger your rosette.
Next, fold your strip of fabric in half.
Begin by tightly rolling one end of your fabric strip until you have made a ‘bud’. (This can be as big or as little as you want).
Next, unfold the remaining fabric, and begin wrapping and twisting around the ‘bud’.
Leave about 1-2 inches of fabric at the end of your strip. Turn your rosette over.
Take the remaining 1-2 inches, and twist, fold, and attach it on to the back of the rosette to secure it.
Add a bit of hot glue to secure it. And you’re done!
A huge, huge thanks to all who entered the fall wreath giveaway. I wish everyone could have won!
