Fabric Rosette Christmas Tree Ornament

I’ve mentioned before that I love anything with texture. Several years ago, I first saw fabric rosette necklaces from Allora Handmade, and fell in love with their textured goodness to add to clothing (especially for pictures). I have a few necklaces myself, and have tried to make a few. I also thought it’d be fun to work with some holiday colored fabric scraps to make a Christmas tree ornament, so that’s what I’m showing you today. I first shared this a few weeks ago when I was a guest on U-create crafts, where they’ve shared a lot of cute handmade ornaments.

This Fabric Rosette Christmas Tree Ornament  is SO easy to make, and done with all fabric scraps–we all keep hold of those, in case we need them for SOMETHING special, right? I love the way it turned out!

Rosette Christmas Tree Ornament

Have you ever made rosettes before? They can take a little bit of time, but I’ll sit and make a bunch while watching a movie. Check out this tutorial by my friend Jen (with other cute ideas for rosette’s, too). The first time you make rosettes might need a little extra patience, it’s using both hands to tightly twist and roll the fabric around itself, but after the first, you’re good to go!


  • scrap fabric
  • glue gun
  • scrap felt
  • scissors
  • string/rope to hang

Here are the simple steps:

  1. Make 6 medium sized rosettes, one small size for trunk, x-small for star
  2. when I make a rosette, I twist it and glue gun it down every inch or so
  3. Line them up like a tree on the felt piece
  4. glue the rosettes down in your pattern
  5. cut around the felt on the back so you see it as little as possible
  6. glue on the rope/string to hang
  7. glue rosettes better to each other so they are stiff and solid

Hope you enjoy this fun ornament, that can also be great as gifts for friends and family.
