After all the Christmas decorations got taken down, my poor living room area was screaming for decorations.
Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I wanted to do something RED.
The first thing to do is to gather the ribbon. I used my ruffler foot for my sewing machine to gather the grosgrain ribbon. For the Double Faced Satin ribbon, I did a straight stitch on the largest stitch. Then I pulled one thread to gather it by hand.
Once gathered, I wrapped the ribbon to form a rose and took a needle and thread to it. I stitched through the bottom and wrapped and stitched to make sure it held in the shape I wanted.
If you are particular about thread showing, use a color that matches your ribbon. For both the gathering and stitching.
I gathered and stitched together all the ribbon in the same fashion.
Then I found a frame that I liked, I just found a cheap white one. I got some brown painter’s paper and cut it up to fit in the frame. You can use a grocery bag or a lunch bag and it would get the same effect.
I crinkled it up and flattened it out and put it in the frame.
Then I placed my flowers inside the frame how I wanted and played around with it for awhile. Once I got it how I wanted it, I hot glued the flowers down to the paper.
This is such an easy project and really adds a lot to a space. I love it!
