Tutorial: Ribbon and Pearl Rose Pin.... Perfect for Valentines.

Ribbon Roses

With a few ribbon twists and drops of hot glue you can whip up a rose pin that has a romantic look. 

Gather This: Ribbon, Hot Glue, Pearls, Needle, Thread and a Pin-back.

 Begin with 2 yards of 1.5 to 3" wide ribbon.  The distressed crepe ribbon used is from my supply shop but you can use almost any wide ribbon or torn strips of fabric.  Visit my shop here.

Begin on one end of the ribbon, fold the corner on an angle and hot glue to secure.  What is that pink thing on my finger?  Hot Glue Gun Helpers.... No more burns!

 Begin twisting and folding the ribbon.  Hot glue as you twist.  Continue to fold, twist and glue.

Continue until the entire length of the ribbon has been twisted and hot glued to the back side.

Flip over and hot glue the tail-end to the back of the rose.

 Ready for Embellishing.

 Pink embellishing pearls from the supply shop.  Visit the shop here.

Stitch a selection of pearls in the center and a pin back to the back.
