Fabric Rosette Headband

These fabric rosettes are really cute and easy. I have seen them on so many craft projects and I fell in love. I learned how to make them from this tutorial. I like them because they are messy, yet cute and compact.

  • Fabric - the longer your strip of fabric, the bigger the flower will be. I used a 2"x 12" strip for my big flowers and a 2"x 9" strip for the little one.
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Headband - or whatever you want to attach the flowers to
Cut out your fabric and fold it in half lengthwise.

*I have no idea what was going on with the background colors
Tie a knot at the end. Make sure to leave a tiny tail so you can fold it under the knot.

With some hot glue, fold the little tail under the knot.

After it is secure start folding your long fabric strip around your knot. Twist inward towards the knot and secure with glue at intervals. I glued every two twists.

Keep twisting and gluing around the flower. As you get toward the end make sure to leave enough to tuck under the bud.

Twist the end and tuck under. Secure with glue.

Once that is dry flip it over and attach a small circle of fabric to the bottom. This helps keep the flower from falling apart and covers the gritty bottom edges for a clean finish.

Clip the edges of the circle so they do not stick out from under the rosette. Now you have a finished product! They are so easy it was hard not to make a bunch of them. 

I did make a couple more so I could put them on a headband.

I used the hot glue and attached them to the headband. I adjusted them so they covered the spots on the headband. 

This turned out really cute! I love this headband and I cannot wait to wear it. I will wear it to work today!
