How to make felt rosettes
I have been busy the last week working on a wreath for Valentine's Day. I am not sure if I will post it for sale on my Etsy shop, but I wanted to mainly make it for ME. I have seen ones like this in stores and I just couldn't bring myself to pay the price for them. So I decided to make it myself.
Its a simple wreath covered in felt rosettes. Although they are easy to make, its VERY time consuming and the redundancy can be boring. But its worth it in the end.
First, you find a round object you want to use as a template. The bigger or smaller the circle, the bigger or smaller the rosette will be. Below, I used the lid to a 3 wick candle. Trace the amount of circles you need for your project.
Next start at the pointy end, and begin to roll the felt.
Once you get to the end, you will be left with the larger center of the spiral you cut.
