Hello dear readers of Oh Lovely Day!  Kristi here from Luna and Chloe Weddings.  I was just tickled when Chandra asked me to guest post for her while she gets away for a bit…as I adore her and Oh Lovely Day!!!  And as such, I have created a fairly quick DIY project just for you.  I am sure you might have seen something similar to these fabric rosettes (that’s what I’m calling them) before, but I just had to try my hand and making them myself.  Here have a look-see…

And I have to tell you ~ they were pretty easy to make!  You only need a couple of items for this project (all items I had on hand):
1.  A glue gun and glue
2.  Scissors
3.  Fabric
4.  Felt

To start you will need to cut a piece of felt into a square, and then tear off an inch or two piece of fabric…

Starting with one end, glue it down in the center of the felt square.  From there, you just twist the fabric around in a circle adding glue every now and then to secure in place, and then trim off the excess felt ~ that’s it!

What I LOVE about these fabric rosettes is that you can make them tight twists…

Or loose…

And in any size.  The longer and thicker the fabric the bigger the rosette.  Can’t you just picture really, really big ones decorating a wall?  Eeks ~ I know it would be over the moon!
And you can use them EVERYWHERE ~ on the cake would be cute, escort cards, napkins, add a pin and make a brooch, glue to a clip and where in your hair, make a necklace, attach to picture frames, favor bags…bunches and bunches of options 😉  Here are a couple of examples of ways to use…

Darling, no?  And those large chipboard tags would be so cute with table numbers on them if you stood them up.
So there you have it my dears ~ pretty, easy fabric rosettes!  Hope you enjoyed this little DIY project.

Thanks, Krisit for that lovely DIY!  I can’t wait to try it myself.
