Wool Roses on a Stem

Hello my sweets! I’m definitely getting down with the sugar lingo just in time for Valentine’s Day. And in honor of that day devoted to love, don’t you think these felted wool roses would make a nice gift for that someone special in your life?

If you haven’t already, learn how to make the rose heads, in the tutorial HERE.

Hot Glue
Tacky Glue (or E-6000 but that is overkill)
Cardstock Scrapbook paper

Turn your roses over and snip off the middle flap.

Squeeze a fair amount of hot glue into the back center of the rose.

Then insert one stick into it.

Next fold your scrapbook paper in half.

Cut out a leaf shape with the stem landing on the fold.

Bend the stem down slightly.

Next make a crease along the length of your leaf.

Put a small dollop (I just love that word) in the middle of the two leaves to secure them together.

Next glue the stem of your leaf to the stick. I used hot glue, but half my leaves fell off. Therefore, I recommend using a tacky glue instead.

Who would you give these everlasting roses to?

  4. Did you change the colors of the roses in photoshop or a similar program?

    Joy Ellen, I made two sets of roses. Some black for a sweater. And the red ones for roses. I color correct all my photos in Photoshop if they need it. Hope that answers your question.
