We’ll be using the DT cookie sheet of course (they come in a pack of two), scissors, paint, and hot glue. I’m aiming for patriotic, so blue and red paint for me!! These can be made for any theme or time of year though, depending on paint color.
Prepping the cookie sheet….
First up, cut the edges from the sheet, leaving you with just the center rectangle. Be very careful not to get cut with any sharp edges here.
Next, cut the rectangle into strips similar to what you see here. Different sizes of strips will yield different sized flowers. My measurements for this one are 6.5 inches long pieces by 2 inches wide.
Making the rosette…
Once the strips are cut, choose two strips that are the same size and lay one on top of the other and begin an accordion fold. It will look something like this…
My fold is 1/2 inch on this one and will determine the size of the “petals.” Now that the folds are complete I can pull the two pieces apart.
Now use scissors to cut the end of each of the two pieces at an angle to create the look wanted on each petal. Spread each piece out like you see below.
Next, use hot glue to attach the two pieces. Once both sides are glued push the center down.
Then add a bit of hot glue to the center to hold it down. I always add something on top so I don’t worry about seeing the glue.
The final step is to add paint and something to the center. I LOVE the rusty stars from Hobby Lobby!! I always pick them up at Christmas and keep to use all year!! You can also find the stars here!!
There are so many fun ways to dress these Dollar Tree cookie sheet rosettes up!! I’m using Scrabble tiles, rusty stars, and galvanized numbers that I cinnamon rusted!! What do you think?? How would you make yours?? Let me know!!
