Make Yarn Rosettes (Tutorial)

I love crochet flowers  But I can not crochet
So, I came up with yarn rosettes  Which resemble crochet flowers a little
To make yarn rosettes you only need yarn (or embroidery thread)
The thicker your yarn is the bigger flower you get from a small braid
 
These are very easy to make  And are great for a variety of projects

Here’s a tutorial to help you make yarn rosettes

 

MAKE IT:

 

  • Make a braid with the yarn (or embroidery thread)  And roll it into a rosette  You will need to glue at the beginning and the end  You may need glue as you roll if you are making big rosettes  Mine are small for little cute projects
  • You can make any form of braid  I made a 3 strings braid in the picture below
  • Once done, dab some glue and place a piece of felt at the bottom of the rosette  This will secure the rosette in place
  • Leave it to dry and your done

Here’s how the rosettes look  The purple one is made with thread  And the pink with yarn

You can also make a twisted thread rosette

Tie the threads at the beginning point  I used 6 threads per side to make thicker braids

Now twist the two together, and tie at the other end

Roll the twisted braid into a rosette, and use glue and felt to finish
