10" Chinese lantern
11 Fat quarters or 1-Jelly Roll
Adjustfabric quantity if you are using a different size lantern.
Step 1-Cut fat quarters into 2.5" x 22" strips. If you are using a jelly roll cut the strips in half so they are 22-ish inches long.
Step 2-Fold each strip in half, and run a gathering stitch along the bottom, securing at one end. You can use a machine, or do it by hand.
I did it by hand so that I could make the rosettes while I was waiting for kids at soccer, dentist, football, etc.
Step 3-Pull gathering threads, and curl strip into a rose.
Step 4- Apply Hot Glue to the back of a rose and randomly stick it onto the Chinese lantern
Step 5- Keep gluing them on until the lantern is FULL.
Step 6- Hang, and adore!
1 lovely Be-rosed Lantern. Wouldn't this be great in a girls room?
I'm putting mine in my studio because it makes my heart go pitter-pat!
These roses would also be fabulous on a pillow!! (Thanks for the idea Angela!)
