Ribbon rose


Here is probably the quickest most easy ribbon rose you'll ever make! Alot of people make fabric roses, but i like to use ribbon because it gives the rose a really neat clean look, there is pretty much no fray except on the ends of the ribbon which won't show at all.




Here is what you'll need!

Supplies:
Hot glue gun 
Felt
Ribbon (i used 7/8 inch)
Scissors

First cut a circle out of your felt however big you want the flower to be,then knot the end of your ribbon. 


Glue the knot to the middle of your circle. 


Start twisting your ribbon 


glue around your knot and then place the twisted ribbon where you glued.


Continue twisting and gluing until you go all the way around and the felt is not showing - and your done!

If you want you can glue a clip to the back or make it a headband....there's so many options!!




Then have fun putting putting together different looks!


 I usually like to add pearls, feathers or buttons to make it look a little different


 This one is going to be a headband!






Have Fun!!
