Just looking out my window I see leaves falling from the trees and ever so poetically floating through the air greeting the ground as an old friend. Now since autumn is so beautiful and doesn't seem to last long enough I decided to take advantage of all of its beauty and preserve and craft nature till my heart was content.
So today since I felt crafty I made several roses and was absolutely delighted with how well they turned out to be, and decided I shall share a tutorial with you, in case you want to make some roses as well.
To make Leaf Roses you will need:
About 10 leaves, freshly fallen so that they aren't brittle and won't break or tear easily.
A long, pliable leaf stem
1. Starting with the smallest of the leaves with the colorless side facing you, bend the middle leaf tip down towards you.
4.Once again starting from the siding tip, fold down the outer tips and roll the leaf around the previously rolled leaf.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have your desired rose shape. Using a stem from a leaf, tie it around the other stems to secure the rose's shape.
This tutorial is really quite simple even though sounds a little complicated. It's fun, and at the end you have a lovely rose.
