  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut 1-1/2 yards of chosen 2-1/2 inch wide Mesh Ribbon.
  • 2
    Tie a loose knot at one end; this will be used as a stopper and will need to be untied, so don't knot too tight!
  • 3
    Starting at the opposite end (without knot), create a fold at 90 degrees. Turn and make another fold at 90 degrees.
  • 4
    Continue to make folds as noted in Step 3, but making sure to keep the opening in the center. When you
  • 5
    reach the end and the last fold, there will still be a tail left on the side you have been folding.
  • 6
    Carefully pull the knotted tail and pull through the center to meet with the tail that was left on the side with the folds. Untie knot and wrap the two tails together with Floral Tape.
  • 7
    Holding the taped together ends, twist the layers in the opposite direction of the folds of the mesh and it will start to look like a rose.
  • 8
    Attach dowel to the bottom of the rose and continue to cover dowel by wrapping it with Floral Tape.
  • 9
    Cut approximately 10 inches of Green Mesh ribbon. Fold over so ends meet together.
  • 10
    While holding onto ends, pull the folded “top” of the mesh to make it look more like a leaf. Tape to dowel.
  • 11
    Option: Make a bunch of roses and place in floral foam in a terra cotta pot or vase.
