Just in time for Valentine's Day is my Coffee Filter Rose Wreath. I love romantic decor, not only for Valentine's day but any time! I love the way the flowers look like dried roses. How perfect for a mantle, bathroom or maybe hanging on a bed post. This wreath can be made in any scale and in any color combination.
Here are the list of supplies:
Cardboard cut to the shape you like - heart, oval, circle, square, etc
Coordinating crepe or tissue paper
Hot glue gun
1. After cutting out your cardboard wreath take the crepe or tissue paper and wrap or cover the cardboard. This to to prevent the cardboard from showing through the roses and give the sides and back a finished look.
|I used white crepe paper and you could see it a lot, that is why I suggest a coordinating color.|
2. If you want your wreath to have a ribbon hanger (loop) I would make it now and and hot glue it down on the front and back
3. Now you are ready to start gluing the roses down. I think I used about 25-30 large ones and 10 buds (my heart measures 8 inches tall x 7 inches wide). I like to have the roses really close together, but if you don't want to use or make that many roses you could spread them out some.
4. I start with the larger roses and use the buds to fill in gaps and give variation.
5. Continue gluing down all the roses and buds until your shape is completely covered. You can chose to add pearls, rhinestones, or glitter to the roses or leave it as it. A bow near the loop hanger would also be cute.
I mixed two different colored roses pink and a more dusty rose color and it really makes the wreath look like it's made of dried roses.
