- Rosette Orb - Cut 2" strips of fleece and cut 2" circles out of the strips. In each circle cut a spiral starting on the outside edge with a thickness of 1/4" on the strips. Pinch the center of the spiral and start wrapping the strip around the center pinch to form a rosette. Turn over and put tacky glue on the bottom, making sure to touch all edges. Allow to dry. Glue the rosettes onto the orb, keeping them close to each other.
