Rose around the Wreath-y

I guess it makes me an official blogger that I made this:

Yep, that is a rosette. Real bloggers make/wear/sell rosettes. There are so many pretty ones out there.  Mine, not so pretty. Lots of glue gun gunk all over it. But, I'm pretty far from a perfectionist, so I continued on my crafting journey.

There were a few "experimental add-ons", in addition to the rosettes - but I wasn't really feeling them. So there may or may not be some glue clumps left in the rosette clusters. But I'm happy with it. Now all I need is one of those over the door wreath hangers (the only option when your front door is metal). 

The best part about this craft is that with the exception of the wreath form (which I got with a 40% off coupon at Michael's - checked the Dollar Tree - they had other foam forms, but no wreaths, boo!) , I had everything else on hand. (Fabric, glue gun, and glue sticks!)

Inspiration and instructions found HERE.

I am definitely going to be lurking the Dollar Tree again to see if any of those wreath forms show up. It would be so fun to make a few more of these!

Edit: Picked up a wreath hanger, and now my door is extra cheery.


  1. I'm stealing this, too. Hide yo heart tea cups. Hide yo wreaths.
