Quick and Easy DIY Felt or Fabric Flower Rosettes

Updated on September 9, 2011

Let's Get Started!

{You'll Need: Fabric, Scissors, Strong glue--fabric, craft, hot, etc. If you're using felt, I HIGHLY suggest using a hot glue gun so you don't end up throwing them across the room. My gray felt flowers shown above do NOT want to stay in one piece! The white flowers are made out of a very soft, very thin material that is MUCH easier to work with!}

1. Cut your fabric of choice into a circle (any size--huge or tiny), then into a spiral shape.

2. Place the pointy end on your leg or table and apply a dot of glue. Start rolling it up (a la sleeping bag style). The "rounded" (circle) edge will be the top/pretty side of your flower (don't worry, you'll understand this as soon as you start).

3. Roll tightly at first, and loosen up as you get close to the end, applying tiny dots of glue as you roll it up for added security.

4. When you've rolled it all up, flip your little flower over and apply a decent amount of glue at the center and slap on the end piece.

SUPER easy to do, even kids can make them. Use them as table scatter or glass fillers, attach to headbands, frames, tote bags, throw pillows, wreaths...the options are endless!

You could even glue a cluster of them to a small (hidden) piece of fabric, and then (secretly) pin or velcro that to your object so it's removable! Create different colors for different outfits or seasons and swap them out. Easy-peezy!

I would love to see YOUR version of these adorable fabric rosettes! Feel free to post a link and share =)
