Rosette Tutorial & Lamp Update

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | Leave a comment

Last week, I told you about my brass funeral home lamp update in my Pinteresting Challenge post.  You can read about that here.  Today I went ahead and made another little change to the lamp shade.  When I initially re-did the lamp I simply stuck a beige patent leather flower that I found at Hobby Lobby on the shade.  I knew I wanted to do something different with this – but I didn’t know how to make the super cute rosette type flowers that I had seen here.  When it came time to make my wreaths (want to see those?), I find a tutorial on how to make these flowers which was so super easy!

I apologize in advance for the lack of photo quality here.  I was making these in my living room while watching Storm Chasers last week!  Work with the time ya have, ya know!?!?

First, cut a circle out of a piece of felt.  How large of a circle you cut, will dictate the size of the flower.  For my projects, I’ve made different size flowers from rather large, to super tiny.  I like the way it looks both on the lamp and on my wreaths, but it also gives you the most bang for your buck, in terms of using the whole sheet of felt.
