I was asked to share the fabric roses "how to".... well they
couldn't be easier.
I thought I would whip something up to cover an ugly green
plant container and make it cute.
I picked up some baby tears (they make me think of my Mom)
I think that plant was $1.50
I grabbed my supplies;
scissors and plant
I cute a long piece of my burlap to cover up the Ugly pot.
(Just put a few dabs of glue to secure it as you go.)
Then you take your ribbon, (you can use fabric as well, just cut long narrow lengths)
I don't ever measure so play around with it to get different size flowers
Sorry for the unfocused picture.
My tripod is out in my car... it is pouring... and
I was balancing the camera between my knee and my chin... need I say more.
Back to the flower... Take your ribbon and tie a knot in the end.
(this way you have something to wrap it around)
(again balancing my camera... )
this is pathetic...
Just start wrapping and twisting around your knot.
add glue as you go to hold it together.
wrap until you have come to the end.
put a little dab of glue on the back of your flower to
secure the end.
(and for pete sake STOP looking at my un-manicured hands....)
there you have it.
I wrapped a matching ribbon around the burlap... and put a large blop of glue
(see it dripping onto my counter...)
Put your beautiful rose into the glue blop... (Blop is a very technical term
and it is way different then a blob...)
I stuck mine on my kitchen window sill...
It is raining here in the North...
Hope you all make something with a Fabric Rosette.
You may also enjoy...
Have a Wonderful Day!
