Gathered Ribbon Rosette on Alligator Clip

Today’s tutorial is on how to make this sweet gathered ribbon rosette clip. These little things are SO ADORABLE and easy. Makes me wish I had a girl. Thank God for nieces huh?

Rose ClipYou will need:

Rosette Clip SuppliesAbout 8″ of Double Ruffle Ribbon (you can use any ribbon, but the double ruffle works REALLY well for this because it already has a little gather to it.)

5.5CM Snap Clips

Butterfly Embellishments for center of Rosette

Needle and Thread (Color shouldn’t matter. You won’t be seeing it once you are finished.)

Glue Gun and Glue Stick (not pictured)

Lighter  (not pictured)


Begin by heat sealing your ribbon. Just run a lighter over the ends really quickly–it doesn’t take much–to seal the ends so that they don’t fray. Be careful not to burn yourself!

Now you can start hand sewing a weave through your ribbon about every 1/4 of an inch. No need for exactness, just approximately.

I took my needle out at this point, it won’t be needed anymore.

Now hold one end of your ribbon and start pushing the ribbon up toward the other end like this:

Continue to push the ribbon until it is mostly gathered together like this:

Now, take both ends of your ribbon and tie them tightly together. This will force those last ends to gather up.

Clip the excess thread off of your rosette and fluff the flower out until you like how it looks.

Cute right? But we aren’t done yet! Hot glue your sweet little butterfly in the center of your rosette.

Now just hot glue the back of your rosette to the small metal part on the end of your snap clip, and done! An adorable and easy hair accessory!
