Tutorial Tuesday: Ribbon Rosette Earrings

Tutorial Tuesday
Ribbon Rosette Earrings

Ok first off I apologise for the close up of my ear! Apparently taking a self portrait of an earring is not the easiest thing in the world..especially when trying to avoid the whole 11pm no makeup face thing! And yes my freckles do extend to my ears...lovely!
Anyway moving on...
I have been obsessed with button earrings the last few weeks! And thought hey...what if I made a little ribbon rosette & stuck it on one of the posts and voila!

What You'll Need:
Skinny Ribbon
Glue Gun
Lighter or Fray Check
Earring Posts & Butterfly Nuts

Step One:
Grab your ribbon and start tying loose(ish) knots. (I tied 5 knots per rosette.) Trim your ribbon on both ends and burn to prevent fraying.

Step Two:
Dab a bit of glue on the face of your post and stick it to some felt. (I used the scraps from a headband I made yesterday but next time I'll use a matching color.) Trim off excess felt around the post.

Step Three:
Use another little dab of glue to secure the rosette to the felt and you're done! (I don't know that the felt is even nessesary but I was worried the rosette would pull off the post too easy and because the size was so close I didn't want the shiny silver showing through.)

I can't wait to add them to my collection!
