Hi all, My Sixth post on Christmas and Advent special. An Elegant yet easy to make D.I.Y satin ribbon rose flower wreath with artificial berries and a fantastic tree top bow “Front door Wreath”. so lets get started.
THINGS WE NEED:
- Wreath (I specifically picked the green coloured one but it is really a preference)
- 40 mm(width) Pale green Ribbon,
- 40 mm(width) Olive green Polyester silk ribbon,
- Lighter or Candle,
- floral wire,
- Green sticky tape,
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks,
- Tree top bow,
- Artificial berry bunch,
Step 1: Lets begin with petals . Cut in a leaf shape as shown below. Singe the ribbon border with lighter or a candle (If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision).
Step 2: For sepals make 3 sepals for and 3 leaves for one flower. Measure and cut 2cm for sepals and singe the borders. Just as shown below.
Step 3: For stem, cut about 10cm and wrap the stem wires with green tape.
Step 4: For making petals 10cm length ribbon.First fold the ribbon just as shown in the following pictures.
Step 5: Hold the angled corner using tweezers and scissors cut a triangle shape, singe the ribbon with lighter or a candle. If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 6: Repeat step 5 for the other side of the ribbon .
Step 7: You may end up with all the flower petals ready.
Step 8: Apply a drop of glue in one corner of a petal, place the wire on glue and keep rolling inwards as shown below. Keep adding more petals.
Step 9: Full flower should look just like the bellow picture. Now its time to stick 3 sepals for each flower.
Step 10: Apply a drop of glue on one end of the leaf we just made and stick a small stem.
Wrap leaf and a flower stem together.
Step 11:Now our flowers are ready.
Step 12: Lets start arranging our wreath.
Step 13: Start placing the roses and the berries on the wreath. I randomly place one flower at a time through the wreath and securing the flower stem by wrapping on the wreath twig.
Step 14: Using a small green ribbon about 4cm in width, try to pull the ribbon around the wreath.
Step 15:singe the ends together using candle or lighter. This is the hanging loop for our wreath.
Step 16: we are going to place a big tree top bow we made on our previous tutorial. Please click at this link to check out the Bow. Place the bow above the hanging ribbon.
