In the end, you can place a cute button, gem, or pearl to adorn it. Besides, to create a more dramatic and vibrant flower, you can take flower cutouts from different fabrics.


How to Make a Rosette Flower

  • Take a long strip of fabric to work with. Consider the length and width of a standard yardstick to get an idea of how long and wide the strip should be.
  • Fold the strip in half along the center.
  • Firmly crease and pin it with your fingers to hold it as you go ahead.
  • Now,start rolling it. Begin at one end of the strip and roll up the fabric into a slightly tight coil. You can also use a pin or needle to hold the center coil in place.
  • Then, start wrapping around the center of your rosette.
  • To add more texture and create an appealing look, twist about two to three times in each round for a more realistic petal look.
  • After about 4 to 5 rounds, slightly loosen the wrap for a more natural-looking flower.


In the end, tuck the end of the strip either using a pin or hot glue. To make it stable, add a felt or base on the backside and fix the flower with hot glue. Now, you use it the way you want.
