What you will need
A4 paper – (1 sheet per rose)
string (I have used jute twine)
Double sided tape/sellotape
Needle & white thread
Step 1. Cut the A4 sheets of paper so that they are square.
Step 2. Now using the square as a size guide, cut the paper into circles (this does not have to be neat)
Step 3. Cut about 1 inch into the circles and then in a spiral getting thicker until you reach the centre
Step 4. Starting from the outside of the spiral, roll the paper up tightly until you reach the centre and then loosen your grip to release the layers, giving you the form of a rose.
Step 5. Secure the bottom of the rose using the tape and gently fluff the rose to the size and standard you would like (I like to put a little bit of tape between a few of the layers to secure them even more and to get them to sit just right)
Step 6. Once you have done this for all the roses you require, using the needle and thread, secure each rose to the string.
Voila…you’re done, easy as that.
Of course you can make the garland as long or as short as you like, with as many roses as you like, in whatever colours you like. The first rose can sometimes be a bit fiddly but you quickly get the hang of it.
I hope this tutorial has been easy to follow and that you have fun making your garlands. Feel free to leave any comments or feedback.
