Rolled Felt Rose Scalloped Heart

Here's Scalloped Heart #2!
Now we couldn't find any tiny rosebuds in town to mimic the original heart
we fell in love with, so we decided to use rolled felt to make tiny little rose buds.
 We love using felt because it's very forgiving to work with and inexpensive too!
Look how the rolled felt roses accentuate
the scalloped edges so beautifully.....holy smokes I sound like my Mother!
But that's a good thing! (Love you Mom!)
We made the felt roses by first cutting a 1 inch by 3 inch strip. 
Fold the strip in half lengthwise, gluing one of the edges...this will help the edge roll smoother. 
Roll, starting with the unglued edge and secure with a dab of glue at the end to hold it all together.
We used Beacon 3 in 1 Adhesive, quick set glue. 
It is great stuff and will save you from getting many glue gun burns.
We did use the glue gun to adhere the roses to the wood. 
High temperature works best gluing felt to painted wood.
Make sure to hide your seams by gluing them to the inside!
Start at the top and outline your heart with the roses.
  You can squeeze the inner roses in better when you have an outline.
If any of your roses look uneven, you can trim the tops up with a pair of scissors. 
And there ya have it, another fun twist with a fun scalloped heart!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Oh my goodness I think I need to make one of these for each doorknob in my house. I love it that much. The little felt roses...G.E.N.I.U.S. You could SOO change the shape a little, put orange roses on and make carrots for Easter!
