How To Make A Rose Garland

ITEM # 06811650P7

DESCRIPTION +

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
  • Assorted artificial roses (about 10-15 stems with multiple flower heads)
  • Birch branch 48" or 3/4" dowel rod
  • Roll of medium weight jute
  • Bottle of tacky glue
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • Wire cutters

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Snip all the heads off of the stems of roses, leaving about 1" stem.
  2. Lay the flowers in rows on a flat surface starting with the lightest color of roses at the left and darkest colored ones to the right. Try varying the number of flowers in each row to make it feel more random instead of organized.
  3. 18-20 roses in a line will be needed.
  4. 9-10 rows of roses will be needed.
  5. Cut 10 pieces of jute about 6 feet in length.
  6. Tie on the first flower about 6" down a piece of jute. Sometimes the back of the flower can be removed and a knot tied around the base. Place a small dab of glue to keep the knot from slipping and then reattach the base at the back of the flower head.
  7. If unable to remove the back of the head, tie a knot around the flower base on the back and place a small dab of hot glue at the base of the jute and then also place a dab of tacky glue on each side of the base of the flower and jute.
  8. Tie the next rose onto the jute string directly below the first one. Leave about 6" spacing between flower heads.
  9. Do this until reaching the darkest color.
  10. Tie the strand onto the birch branch or dowel rod.
