|Easy Fabric Rosette Wreath|
The fabric rosettes give this wreath a country feel while welcoming the warmer days to come.
strips of fabric
hot glue gun
fabric glue (optional)
To make the fabric rosettes:
Cut 1.5 inch wide strips of fabric and tie off the ends.
Twist the fabric and wrap it into a spiral shape. To make turning the spiral easier you can set the fabric on a piece of felt or just turn it on a smooth surface like a table. Add a dot of hot glue or fabric glue to the edge every half inch or so to secure the spiral.

Once you reach the other tied off end, glue it to the back of the rosette.
To make the leaves cut a circle of green felt into quarters. Glue a piece of felt to the back of the flower so the end it sticking out.
I used 4 rosettes for this wreath to keep it simple, but you can use as many as you want.
Wrap your wreath form with 3 inch wide strips of fabric. I needed 2 strips to cover the entire wreath form. Hot glue the strips in place once you have wrapped it.
|Make sure the fabric covers the entire form|
Apply the rosettes with hot glue and add desired embellishments.

Tip: Use patterned fabric to give the rosettes extra detail.
This entire project took around one and a half episodes of Lost, minus the commercials. :)
Here is an example of how you can use a left over rosette. :)
