Pipe Cleaner Rosettes

I was walking through Michael’s the other day and came across the pipe cleaners.  I had this fabulous idea in my head to make a cute bow with them.  Unfortunately, it didn’t pan out how I planned it in my head.  It ended up looking like a twisted up slinky – all discombobulated.  But, that craft fail turned into this craft win.  By happy accident, I created these Pipe Cleaner Rosettes!

Wanna learn how to make your own?

Here’s what you need:

Pipe cleaners



Start off with six pipe cleaners.  Bundle five together and set one aside.

Use the extra pipe cleaner to twist around the middle of the bundle.

Twist the pipe cleaner around the middle of the bundle a couple of times and cut off the extra.

Next, fan out the pipe cleaners.

Curl each pipe cleaner into the middle.


Continue to curl all the ends and arrange into a rosette.
