A most beautiful rose
I know what everyone is thinking. Isn't that such a pretty rose! Yes it is! But I will tell you a secret..it's not real! I made it! I'm sure everyone knows who Cindy is at My Romantic Home. Well she has a post from a while back about these amazing roses and that's where I discovered them! She made some beautiful ones!
You actually make them out of coffee filters! The link for instructions and a video is Here. On Martha Stewart's website. They are a lot of work but so amazing...
...and much prettier in person.
See it's not real I swear! lol All you need are coffee filters, florist's tape, wire, water color paints, and patience. lol Have fun I hope everyone tries it! It is so amazing. It took me about an hour to make and paint the whole thing. Then I blow dried it because, you do paint it with water colors and things get soggy. Someone left a comment saying they had done it and it worked out pretty well. Otherwise the directions say to let it dry over night! I didn't want to wait that long. lol Watch the video and follow it along to make yours because the written directions are not that helpful. Happy flower making everyone! :)
