Adding a little Flair

I have been working on many projects lately, and discovering my love for power tools. Of course I can't show you that project till later, but I do have a few things to share. I love fun hair accessories, I truly think they can make a plain outfit turn into a real head turner! Thank goodness I have a little girl who loves wearing them as well! Here are just a few that I made last night!

Here is an easy tutorial on how to make the adorable fabric rosettes!

You will need:
A strip of fabric.
Hot glue gun and glue sticks.
Beads for embellishing.

First take a strip of fabric and knot it in the middle.

Next,place a dab of hot glue on the knot and wrap the fabric around it and hold it for a few seconds.

Then twist the ends and begin to wrap it around the knot. Place a small dot of hot glue every time you wrap the twisted fabric around. Be careful where you place the glue. You don't want it to show when your rosette is done.

See how the ends flap out sometimes? You can close up the ends that seem to flap with a little hot glue. Just make sure you place the glue in a well hidden areas.

Finally add some beads. Again be careful of how much glue you use. You only need the tiniest dab of glue for these beads. These are super fun and easy to make!

Hope you enjoyed!
