Ric-Rac Rosette Earrings

I've been wanting to try making these adorable little rosettes for awhile, and finally did it today!  I can't remember where I saw this idea, but I'm sure its all over the blogosphere.  Here is my take on making ric-rac rosettes and using them for earrings.

What you will need:
  • About 20 minutes
  • Some ric-rac (I think I had about 20 inches, so 10 inches per rosette)
  • Quick drying fabric glue
  • Earings (I am using an old pair of earrings that I haven't worn since high school!)
  • E6000 glue (pictured further down the post)
The best part of this for me... I had it all on hand so this project was FREE!!!

Start out by putting some of the fabric glue across about 2 inches of the ric-rac.

Then start rolling.  Continue putting glue on the ric-rac and rolling...

When you get the rosette to the size you want, put some glue across the bottom of the rosette, then fold the ric-rac straight down and across the bottom.  You can see its folded/pinched a little under my finger, I put a small dab of glue there too, to hold it in place.

 Snip the ric-rac so its covering the bottom of the rosette, but not hanging out, you don't want to see it from the top side.  Then stick a pin through the whole thing to hold in place while the glue continues to dry.

No put a small dab of E6000 on your earring and smush it into the bottom of the rosette.

Let dry.  Remove the pin.

And enjoy your fun, new, fashionable earrings!
