Red Rosette Wreath

 This week I made this awesome rosette Wreath. I am loving it. It was really easy to make too, it definitely took less time than the book page wreath as well. 

To make it you make a lot of rosettes about the size of my fist, to learn how to make the rosettes go to my tutorial that I showed you the other day Here. I then hot glued them onto a  medium sized cross stitching circle hoop. 
This is what it looked like. They fit perfectly actually. Then I made more rosettes and then glued them on top of the other rosettes. I did it so the top ones overlapped in the middle of the first row of the rosettes. 
There was a small gap in the wreath that was too small for another rosette so that is where I put the bow!
I have been totally obsessed with red lately. This is going to go in my kitchen. I have yet to find a spot for it though... I have too many decorations!! I need a bigger place. 

I actually did not have ribbon, so I just cut up some black fabric for the picture. I did it as a temporary fix until I could go to the store, but the fabric actually makes for a pretty cute bow, I think I might keep it on there.. 
It was way easy, rosettes are a piece of cake. And if you make them bigger they take up more room so you can do less. But every time I make rosettes I get major glue gun burns. I got a nasty blister from this baby! My finger was ouchy!
