Tutorial on making rosette flower

Tutorial for making rosette flower

These are the basic materials you will need:

A 1-2 inch long piece of fabric
A glue gun and hot glue sticks
and a round piece of fabric

Make a knot in one end of the fabric

Place a dot of glue in the center of your circle of fabric. Your circle of fabric should be as big as you want to make the rosette.

Place the knot on the dot of glue.

Place a dot of hot glue on the side of the knot

Next twist the fabric and then wind it around where you put the hot glue. Then glue another dot and twist again and wind it around again where the glue is. (tip: if you run out a fabric and want to make it larger, just start another piece of fabric where you ran out )

Just keep twisting and gluing around, at this point you can either keep twisting the fabric really tight and in the end you will get a rosette looking like this:or you can start twisting a little more loosely and you will get the rosette in the image below.

Glue down the extra bit on the end underneath. You can either leave the rosette looking like this, or you can glue on some beads or a rhinestone in the middle.

Our finished rosette.

You can then glue a clip on the back and clip it onto a headband, or you can glue it directly onto a headband and place another small circle of fabric on the other side of the headband underneath the rosette to keep it in place.


  1. I love these and can't wait to try and make some of my own! Thanks for the tutorial!!

  2. These are so great. I am adding them to a wreath today. Making them as I am typing this. I will blog about it later so you should stop by and see if I did your tutorial justice... Probably not though cause I dont have an awesome jewel to put in mine. Happy Friday

  3. I think you mean a 1-2 inch WIDE piece of fabric, not long. But great tutorial! You really break it down so it doesn't seem intimidating, and I'm glad you included photos. Thanks!
