Day 21 ~ rose hair tie

Sorry for the lag

This week has been pretty crazy. I helped my daughter move back into a house that she was renting but left due to a huge amount of roommate drama. Well, the roommate left but left all the dirt, cat poo, cigarette butts, burnt carpet, as well as completely damaged furniture, etc. We have been cleaning for 10 days to make this house livable. We are about my Rose making has taken a back seat.

I am hoping to be able to post "on schedule" from today forward so, again, I apologize for the lag in my rose posts.

Have a great Monday!

Day 18 ~ Decorate a wire dressform with ROSES

These roses are all on clips but keeping them on a wire dress form makes it easy to pick out your rose accessory for the day and just looks really cool.
Make them all the same color or similar in color and create something that adds to your d├ęcor.

Day 5 ~ Rosy Tea cup

This cute decoration is great for a unique gift and super easy to make.
What you need:
1 tea or coffee cup (I got mine at goodwill for 35 cents)
Half a Styrofoam ball
Enough crochet roses to cover the Styrofoam ball
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Depending on the size of the yarn you are making your roses with, you will need anywhere between 10 and 15 roses. Be sure to have enough yarn on hand to match your color.

How to do it make a rosy tea cup:

  1. Use glue gun to glue Styrofoam ball to the top of the cup.
  2. Starting at the top of the foam ball, begin gluing the flowers. Be sure to fill in all of the gaps. It is quite difficult to go back later and rearrange the flowers after the glue has dried.

That's It!
