Burlap Rosette Bracelet– by Brassy Apple

Hello! My name is Megan and I am the creative force behind the Brassy Apple blog and the I AM photo Blog.

I’m just a girl who find happiness in and has a passion for sewing, fashion, DIY’ing, upcycling, refashioning, design and attempting to be fun and cool mom! I like to take things that might look hard and show how simply they can be created. I love to help, teach and inspire others to create spaces, items and clothing/accessories that they love. Carving out my own path at my own pace and enjoying the ride…. Have your ever thought to WEAR burlap? Yup I said WEAR it! I have and do! Here’s a simple and chic way to incorporate it into your wardrobe:

Burlap Rosette Bracelet
4 or 5 – 12" x 1.5" strips of burlap
beige/tan/peach felt
hot glue
beads – optional
hook and eye
needle and thread

   Roll each strip into a rosette. Start by folding 1 end in half.

Roll and glue as you go to keep the burlap from unraveling.  Twist one way, then another giving each rosette a different shape. Trim any excess pieces or burlap you don’t want on your finished rosette.

Glue the end under when finished. Repeat the same process to make all your rosettes.


Sometimes it’s easier to "SHOW" you than explain through pictures. Here’s a short video I made showing the right and wrong way to roll your rosettes:

Attach a  hook & eye with a needle and thread to the middle of the felt – 1 piece on each end.

Arrange the rosettes on the felt and glue as many as needed according to your measurement. Glue in between the rosettes as well to keep the rosettes from "separating" when the bracelet is around  your wrist.

Cut away the excess felt so it doesn’t show when worn.

optional – add beading in and around the rosettes attaching with a small amount of hot glue.

Wear it and love it! casual…..

and dressy!
