For the Center of the Flower
Cut two circles from the dark pink tissue paper.
Crumple up the one circle and put it on top of the second circle.
Fold the second circle over the crumpled-up one.
- Add to the skewer and secure with floral tape.
For the Flower
Trace and cut 16 hearts from the light pink tissue paper. These will be the rose petals.
Fold the bottom part of each petal around the skewer, and secure the bottom point of each heart to the skewer, using the floral tape.
Continue until all the rose petals have been secured.
Now, trace and cut 12 hearts from the dark pink tissue paper, and secure these with the floral tape to the skewer. The dark petals will form the outer edge of the rose.
Gently fold the petals of the rose open.
Cut the skewer shorter so that it will be in proportion to the size of the pot.
Cover the whole skewer with floral tape, so that the rose will have a green stem.
Add the green rose leaves to the bottom of the rose.
Spray the whole pot with the silver spray paint. First spray the outside and allow to dry thoroughly, spraying the pot for a second time, if necessary, to obtain a nice even look.
Turn the pot around and spray the inside of the pot, and allow to dry thoroughly.
Add a small piece of dry floral foam to the inside of the pot.
Gently push the stem of the rose into the foam.
Tie the ribbon around the stem of the rose, make a bow and cut the ends shorter to produce a neat result.
- Add some moss and decorative glass sand to cover the floral foam.
