While my daughter was home from college she wanted to make a few ribbon roses. We pulled out the craft supplies and.... here they are! There are several ways to do this. We simply cut out a circle of felt (we traced vitamin lids for a variety of sizes). Scrunch, twist, gather and pleat your ribbon as you hand sew it onto the felt. Begin by turning a bit of the raw edge to the back. End by using some fray check on the ribbon edge and then turn the raw part underneath.
Add some beads, buttons or vintage jewelry to the flower centers. Sew a pin, hair clip or both to the back of your flower and you're ready to wear them.
I especially like how these look worn in the hair... the wired ribbon was surprisingly easy to work with.
