Rosettes are a cute way to dress up a bonnet. Bonnets for Easter or a dressy outfit look adorable on babies and little girls. Dress up a simple bonnet with small rosettes in colours to match her dress or for a garden look. Ribbon can be purchased at any craft store in material from satin to grosgrain.

  1. 1

    Cut a piece of 1 1/2-inch wide ribbon 1 1/2 yards long. The more ribbon you have, the fuller the rosette. If you want a smaller flower, just cut a shorter length.

  2. 2

    Thread your needle with thread that matches the ribbon.

  3. 3

    Slip the needle into one end of the ribbon, right near the edge.

  4. 4

    Run your needle in and out of the ribbon, along the entire length. Make sure to stay right near the edge of the ribbon.

  5. 5

    Gather the ribbon on the thread, pulling it all close together.

  6. 6

    Knot the end of the thread. Make sure it is tightly gathered at this point.

  7. 7

    Arrange the ribbon so that it wraps around itself in a flowered form.

  8. 8

    Hot glue the end of the ribbon to the rest of the rose. Just a small dot will be fine to hold it together.

  9. 9

    Sew or glue the rosette to the bonnet.

Tips and warnings

  • Another easy way to make a rosette is to start with a wired ribbon. Pull one of the wires out of the ribbon, gathering it along that same wire. Wrap the ribbon around itself like you did with the other format and wrap the loose wire around the base of the rosette. Snip the loose wire.
