I found this beautiful wreath made out of crepe paper rosettes created by Natalie at Corduroy Dreams. Check out her tutorial for step-by-step instructions to make this wreath for yourself.
So today I made a trip to the Dollar Store to grab the supplies to make one for myself. I wasn't able to find the wreath form at the Dollar Store, so instead, I created three rosette balls to hang in my dining room.
The supplies I used to make each ball...
Let me first say, Natalie's rosettes turned out SO much nicer than mine. I think I was using a slightly different technique in creating mine. However, I was happy with the results.
|The foam balls came in halves. I hot glued a length of ribbon in a loop onto the flat side of one half of the sphere.|
|Glue the two halves together.|
|I glued the rosettes on as I created them, trying to place them to fill in the holes.|
Find the instructions on creating the rosettes HERE.
|Make smaller rosettes, or roll small pieces of crepe to fill in any holes in your sphere.|
|The finished rosette ball.|
And the complete display...
I am very happy with the finished result! A simple and inexpensive way to add something special for Valentine's Day.
