No matter if you’ve been coming around for months (or years), or this is your very first transformation rodeo – everyone is welcome to link up your projects at the bottom of this post.
Earlier this week I shared my Valentine’s Mantle with my barbed wire wreath embellished with these roses. Aren’t they too cute? Oh and they’re easy peasy, too! Wanna make some? You’ll need…
- felt – I used by the yard kind, 72 inches wide – found at Hobby Lobby for $4.49 per yard (at 25% off – and you can make 22-23 roses out of one yard)
- yard stick, scissors & a fabric marking pen (not shown)
- hot glue sticks & a hot glue gun (check out my
Fold your fabric width wise in half, then in half again, so you have about an 18 inch whack of fabric. Measure 1 1/2 inches from the bottom, then mark it across and cut to get your strips.
Down one edge, run a thin line of hot glue and seal it shut, making a longggg skinny tube. Go all the way to the end matching it up and gluing it down.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, those difference make it look even prettier.
And tada! you have a rose! If you’re gonna do a bunch of these, I suggest getting your husband to cut the strips and you glue them shut, then cut all the scallops while you watch Sherlock Holmes or something (well, that’s what I did anyways!)
And to attach them to the barbed wire wreath, I simply put a dot of hot glue in the center, laid a piece of jute twine, then a bit of scrap on top to hold it all together. Then I carefully threaded it through the wire and tied it off tightly.
