Wire Ribbon Rosette

Bunco comes but only once a month! It’s one of those things that I look forward to more then you’d believe! An entire night where I trade in my kids for other fabulous girls! Food, catching up and even a few rounds of Bunco…if we’re not to caught up in catching up!

We just started rotating in a Craft night into the mix and this last months get together was awesome! Of Course I came camera in hand! Free Post right!!!

Courtney came up with the perfect project for a room fun of girls! These Wire Ribbon Rosettes are super simple and quick to make!


Here’s the simple 411 on how to create a few of your own!


Take approximately 20″ of two colors of Wired Ribbon. Ribbon should be at least 1.5″ wide. Start gathering the ribbon on one of it’s edges by pulling the ribbon to the center. Pull from each end until it looks ruffled! Do this to both pieces of colored ribbon!

Next you’ll form your flower by rolling each ruffled ribbon until it looks like the photo above. You can use the extra wire to stitch it together or you can use a little hot glue to make sure it’s secure!

Lastly you’ll stack your two colors of ribbon and glue them together. Add either an Alligator clip for a hair flower or a pin for a broach!

This one has added Peacock feathers.


The skys the limit when it comes to color combos!

These adorable ones were made the same exact way but we gathered the ribbon on both sides as opposed to just the one!

Once you are done gathering both sides you’ll want to fold the ribbon in half so each wired edge is touching.

Tie a knot on one end. This will be the center of our flower and we will roll the rest around it!

Create your flower by rolling the rest of the ribbon around the center. Secure it by using hot glue every inch or so. Add your pin or Clip or glue it on Felt to cut out and them glue onto a Headband!

Thanks Courtney for a fab projects! LOVE THIS!!!!!

    I have never thought to use wire for my flowers. I've always used thread and wondered why mine never stay. Thank you for your flower guide.

    now I know what to do with all the wired ribbon I have been contemplating trashing! I hate it for bows, but this is do-able!

    The Boob Nazi, I'm not creative AT ALL but I think I could pull off this idea. Should we try together? ;) These are really, really cute. I'll have to pick up some ribbon (all the wired ribbon I have is cheesy Christmas ribbon) and show this to my older girls. I bet they'd love it!

    I have 3 girls, my oldest is 10. She is too big for bows and regular flowers, but she still wants a little something something. These are perfect and I think that she can even help me with them! Thanks for posting the inspiration! (ps-I to love Bunco night!) Please, stop by sometime and say hello! Love making new friends!
