Ric Rac Rosettes


My brother-in-law just returned home from a mission in Brazil last week & brought his sisters these adorable rosette necklaces...
I instantly fell in love!
Thanks for modeling Emily:) 
With a closer look, we discovered the rosettes were made of ric rac!

SO CUTE!
I had to make one for myself, so I went to the store and bought the colors that were on Clearance
(because I'm cheap)


pulled out some thread & some beads that I found for 99 cents on Clearance at Walmart...


and started rolling the ric rac...
see how they EASILY make an adorable rosette?
I doubled my thread and cut it a bit larger than the size I wanted my necklace. I didn't do a clasp of any sort, so I just made sure it would go over my head after I knotted the thread at the end. I started by  adding beads & then rolled my first rosette, stuck my needle through(before cutting off the excess), then cut off the end of ric rac & added a few more beads...
and then repeated the ric rac rosette in a new color...
and now I have my own necklace & I think I have begun a ric rac obsession!
This was my 1st one I completed & I have already made 2 others in different colors, using a variety of bead colors/shapes and patterns.


 Thanks for your inspiration Brazil!!!



A few tips if you are going to try one...
-You might want to get some fray check, the ends of mine are starting to fray.
-you might want to add a little glue as you roll your ric rac. I didn't, but if you don't, just make SURE your needle goes through the center of your ric rac, so it doesn't unravel at all.

cjhandmade said...

Such a cute idea. I will be trying this soon.

amy dame said...

this is super cute!

in terms of fraying, most rickrack now is polyester, so you could just singe the ends. it's only if you're using vintage rickrack that you'd need to dig out the fraychek!

Rhonda said...

Very awesome! I will be linking from Dollar Store Crafts!

Jenny Bolech said...

This is such a cute idea! All my rick rack is printed polka dot. I wonder how that would look. I guess I better find out :)
