DIY Show & Tell – Valentine's Day made with LOVE

Looking for some DIY Valentine’s Day projects? Check out previous posts here and here AND these sweet projects below then share your own. 🙂

I love this tutorial from Tidy Mom. Rosettes are on my DIY to-do list and she makes it look so easy! It’s a great Valentine idea for friends. I’d love to get one, wouldn’t you?

I started with a 9×12 piece of red felt that I bought at Michales. Grabbed a glass that was about 3″ in diameter, and traced 6 circles on my piece of felt, then cut them out.

Cut out Felt Circles

Next you can follow the steps in my picture.

(you also click the picture and choose to view in a larger size for detail)

  • Take one circle, fold it in half,
  • then in half again.
  • Hand stitch thru the bottom point enough to keep it folded.
  • Then do the same with each of the circles. I just went from one to the next pulling my thread tightly to keep them all together(I just placed them randomly around each other, not in a stack…it will make sense when you’re making it, you basically want the tips sewn together). When I had all 6 pieces attached I put a few more stitches in to keep them nice and tight together.
  • Next sew them onto a little pin backing (you can these at Michaels in the jewelry making section).

These were so easy and I love how they turned out! The red makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day!

You can wear them on a sweater or jacket, t-shirt, on a bag……or give as a gift!

You could even use them as embellishments on scarves, hats, or pillows – oh, you get the picture!……just sew them right on instead of pining them on!
