Supplies: Floral wire and tape (craft store), stick glue, crepe paper,scissors.
This is what it will look like. It is now ready to begin rolling. Hold the center with one hand and start twisting the paper wrapping the petals as you go along. I tack it with stick glue while wrapping and pinch the bottom of the flower while I am wrapping.
Next I add the floral wire overlapping it at the base of my rose and start applying the floral tape around the base of the rose and the wire and start twirling with my thumb and index finger. As you stretch the floral tape, it becomes sticky and will adhere to the wire and base of the rose.
Continue rolling and twisting until you reach the bottom of your stem.
These work up very quickly once you get the hang of twirling the rose and then the floral tape around the wire. You can make a bouquet in no time!
I did not have green paper to make leaves but will show you that another time. They are even easier to make!
We finished our Lighthouse paintings and I think Hubby did a great job on his, I love it and cannot wait to frame and hang it.
Hubby has been having a rough time of it lately with the chemo and meds but we are hoping he will feel better soon. He sleeps a lot due to the meds and he hates not being able to get outside as our SC temps have been so hot as is normal in July and August. Thank you so much for visiting today and When my pinwheel quilt is finished I will post a picture. Do visit my other blogs if you have time, the list is in my sidebar. Have a most wonderful and Krafty day!! Hugs,
My Krafty heart to yours...
