These look so impressive, but are really easy to make. We show you how to make your own paper roses in three easy steps.
You will need:
- A few sheets of tissue paper
- Strong cotton
- Layer about six sheets of tissue paper on top of each other and cut out petal shapes. Try to make sure they’re all roughly the same size.
- Tie a large knot at the end of your cotton and use the needle to gently pierce the base of each batch of petals, then thread through until all the petals are used up. Cut a few leaf shapes out of green tissue paper and thread these through, too.
- Tie a knot at the other end of the cotton, then wind the remaining cotton around the first knot to bring both ends together. Gently fluff out the petals and voilà! You’ve made a rose.
