There is something to be said about easy quick projects! Who doesn’t love them?
This rose is no sew and could be made in about a minute!! Would you think it could be that easy when you look at it?
For this flower I cut a piece of wired ribbon to 60″. The ribbon width I used was 2 1/2″.
I pulled the wire out of all the ends of the ribbon.
I gathered the ribbon by pushing the ribbon toward the center. As you can see in the picture above the wire is sticking out of both ends. Make sure your wire is sticking out so it doesn’t get lost in the middle somewhere.
After the ribbon is gathered fold one end over.
Then fold the ribbon in half length wise. Because it’s folded in half it has a “bubble” look. It is always nice to go with a different look.
Start rolling the end of the ribbon that you folded over.
Continue rolling the rose, gluing as you go.
When you are done rolling and gluing cover the back with a piece of the wired ribbon.
I pulled out the wire and glued the edges under. Then I glued it to the flower.
I put a Single Prong Clip and a bar pin to the back for versatility.
I am excited to wear this in my hair, pin it to a shirt or a purse, I might even pin it to a belt! So many options!
For a bigger version of this flower (one that isn’t folded in half) click on this link Scented Fabric Decorative Balls. At the end of the post I show you how to make another version of a wired ribbon flower. I put 3 of these wired ribbon flowers on a wreath. There are so many fun ways to use these flowers!
Have fun with this flower! How could you not? It gathers with practically no effort and then you just roll and glue!
I think that is the definition of easy!
