Ribbon Roses

If you are wrapping a Valentine or Mother’s Day gift try embellishing with some of these roses.

You need about 50 cm of wired ribbon in your chosen colour.


Thread A bead onto a length of wire (I used paper covered wire. This will become your stem.

Start carefully gathering the ribbon into the centre of it’s wire, working along one side only.


Starting at one end start wrapping your gathered ribbon around the bead. Keep going until you have formed a rose of your liking. The final length of wire gets wrapped around the stem.\

Embellish yourgift.

      What a lovely way to embellish a birthday gift. You need odd numbers to look right, so just go for one or three. Happy to have inspired you!
