Fabric Roses Ponytail Holder

So yesterday I shared with you how to make fabric roses out of scraps and today I am going to share with you a way to use them. I made a bouquet ponytail holder using the various different rose sizes.

My hair actually looks pretty good in this picture, but this is before I cut it all off. Maybe I should grow it out again? Anyways moving on.

You are going to need roses of all different sizes, a ponytail holder, and some felt. Cut two small circles from your felt.

Glue on your biggest fabric rose in the middle of one of the felt circles.  I used my hot glue gun so the drying time would be quicker.

Then begin gluing more roses on until you have your middle row finished. Once you have the middle finished arrange the flowers on your felt until you have it the way you like it. Don't glue them on until you have arranged them all first to make sure you have enough roses made. You will probably have to angle them on the sides to make it look like a bouquet.

When you are done gluing all the flowers on turn your flowers over and cut off any excess felt. Place your ponytail holder on top and then glue the other felt circle on top. I decided that a strip worked best for me so I cut my felt circle into a strip and then glued it.

One more view from the top of the bouquet.
