WHAT YOU NEED:
- Red, White & Blue Rosette Bow By Ashland
- Styrofoam Ring
- Buttons or Star Buttons
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
STEP 1: TAKE APART BOW
Take apart the rosette bow and replace center twist ties with a piece of ribbon on the small and medium rosettes. Set these aside for later.
STEP 2: OPEN LARGE ROSETTE
Open up the largest rosette (red) into one piece of ribbon. Cut off the ends where it was stapled to remove the holes.
Next, cut a strip from ribbon 3" wide. From that strip, cut 6" pieces so you have nine 3" x 6" rectangles. Set aside the remaining ribbon for later.
STEP 3: FOLD ACCORDION STYLE
Fold each of the rectangle accordion style with 1/4" wide folds as shown.
STEP 4: TIE RIBBON
Tie a short piece of ribbon in the middle.
Use all nine rectangles to make nine rosettes as described.
STEP 4: FINISH ROSETTE
Spread the ribbon out to get a small rosette. Glue each rosette open with a couple of dots of glue from the glue gun. Finish all nine rosettes this way.

STEP 5: WRAP FOAM WREATH
Next take left over piece of red ribbon and cut a 3" - 4" strips. Wrap the strips around the styrofoam ring. Use the glue gun to glue the end of the ribbon down. Glue on the two larger rosettes (blue star and red/white) set aside earlier.
STEP 6: ARRANGE ROSETTES
Arrange 8 rosettes as you like them on the wreath and glue them each to the wreath ring. Glue the last red rosette on top of the blue rosette in the center.
STEP 7: GLUE BUTTONS
Glue the star buttons (or other buttons) onto the center of each rosette including the blue star and the red/white one. If you want the long tails, glue them to the back of the wreath to finish it off.
