No, not the movie! I have been making paper roses to be put on a new wreath to go over my faux mantle. I want something that can stay their year round, well except for the holidays. I’ve made a few roses and would like your opinion.
I would prefer to use a recycled method for this. The first rose and honestly my favorite is made from Trader Joe’s grocery bags:
These colors honestly do compliment my living room the most, however I’m wondering how many bags it would take to make enough roses. My other option would be to mix these multi colored roses with some solid color that match.
#2 on my list is a book page rose:
I like the way this one looks as well, though its much lighter. However again, mixed with some color accent colors, may work well.
My 3rd and 4th options were made by just printing a sample of sheet music and French script on my printer on regular white paper. So if any of these patterns are chosen, I would print them on a more beige-ish off white paper:
I love how subtle the French script is, but I think it may be too subtle for the whole wreath.
I would love to use a recycling method (either 1 or 2) the most, but I’m open to suggestions. What do you think?Linking to these great parties!
