{FuN} Fabric Rosette Rings!

I absolutely LoVe the way all of the fabric flowers and rosettes look! There are a TON floating around on the net...so I decided to give it a try and make some rings for me and my girls!

I don't have a pic of how I made the rosettes...but it was SuPer Easy! I just took a strip of scrap fabric that I ripped...twisted it (loosely) all the way down...then rolled it up like I was making a snail. Then tucked the end under...and hot glued it on a wooden disk. (the same disks I used here.) Then...I put a little extra glue on the edge of the wooden disk...and pushed the fabric over it so that you wouldn't see the wood.

Then for the band...I just used some elastic that I already had...and hand sewed to the size to fit our fingers. {I'm not sure if they have different colors in elastic...but I almost cut one of my daughters hair headbands so that i could have a brown band.}



Then hot glued it on the wooden disk...

And there you have it!


So FuN... EaSy...

And CuTe!!

  6. Thank you so much for the non-tutorial of the rolled rosettes! I know that sounds goofy, but I have been on a mad hunt for a tutorial of how to make them for the last two months because I had convinced myself that it couldn't be easy. Your post just helped me give myself permission to just try to roll it together and it's perfect! Thank you!

    Heather's button rings are way cute, and wasn't her elastic band idea brilliant?! You'll have to send your readers over to see hers too for a variety of ideas on button tops!! (Your other button rings are so cute too!) Fun stuff!
