I made a white rose today and it’s got a pin on the back so I can wear it. Only…I don’t think I will! It also has a hole in one of the petals. Mostly I just wanted to make it!
I thought I bought a small box of spoons when I was getting ready for 30DoC but I can’ t find them. I scrounged around and came with a few less spoons than the directions call for, but close enough. I’m sure I’ll find the box of spoons in the next day or so.
Rem and I went to the DeYoung Museum today and I’d love to say these flower pins from their gift shop inspired me.
But I’d already seen these roses at Can’t Stop Making Things. (Check it out for inspiration).
I’m sorry but I’m not going to post directions. It involves a candle and garden clippers (I used some strong little nippers as well). I couldn’t do it quite as posted, so instead of melting the petals together I used a hot glue gun.
I glued a small circle of felt on the back and then glued a pin back to the felt.
What do you think?
Last year on Day 29 I was also thinking unique roses: check out the Vegetable Printed Wrapping Paper.
Thanks for stopping by!
