Farewell winter - this time, even with all of your frigid beauty and quiet cold mornings, you will NOT be missed. (The unfortunate and ironic point being that it snowed yesterday, and will likely snow again before winter is TRULY over here.)
You remember the first version?
I made the rosettes in exactly the same manner. You'll excuse me, then, if I refer to the previous tutorial for the sake of time and non-repititiousness. The photos are not so awesome, but that's mostly due to being in the dungeon craft room:
First, cut a bunch of tissue paper into strips the long way, about two inches wide or so.
Take your strips, one at a time, and twist them up,
Yep, you're going to get mod podge all the heck over everything. Prepare for that.
I made a few changes this time around - obviously using a normal wreath form instead of a floral foam circle. I also used two different colors for the roses - or rather, two shades of the same color. Below are some tips for the new sunny wreath:
I made the bow by simply creating loops of ribbon and hot gluing them around each other. I then used a piece of skinny ribbon the same color to attach it to the looped ribbon the wreath hangs from.
I have to admit, I love the two-tone better. The tissue paper rosettes might be a little time consuming to make at first, but after you do a few, they'll start flying by. It's a great project to do in front of old office episodes or Zoolander. Or Mean Girls. Or Pitch Perfect.
Also, I have instructions for another project using these rosettes in my book (on sale on Amazon!). It's a cute little topiary, you should check it out!
