Roe Roe Roe Rosettes




So I forgot to tell you all that I’ve almost mastered the art of making my own rosettes. Yes. Those little flowers that I adore on almost any type of clothing, shoe, home good – I can now make them.

Well, the other day I saw a rosette table runner!! (I can't find that darn pic right now)

I’m thinking that this is totally makeable for a small bridal or baby shower or dinner party. If I would ever attempt this for a wedding, I may hot glue my hands together.


Here's popular runner from the fab company EmersonMade

While taking a moment to soak in the awesomeness of the rosette runner, I was thinking…what else could I rosette? I was thinking big and it hit me…

A wall.

Yes, bare with me.

It’s combo Big Ben’s wedding, mixed with fabric, mixed with a small room.

It can be done. Maybe one really snowy Saturday – and if that day comes and we own a place lol. If I get this baby up, I’m NOT taking it down in a year.

So I did a little internets search of a rosette wall to illustrate what I’m talking about here and this is what I came up with…



This paper rosette wall doesn’t cover the full wall, but provides a cool backdrop for a candy bar.(source)



Now this is getting more like it (source)
