Gold Rose Ornament
This charming, round Christmas ornament is fun and easy to make yourself. It comes out as a fancy golden rose ball with a traditional bow. Don't feel limited to keeping the roses gold though, you can make several of these ornaments using different colored roses too!
Approximate Time: 20 minutes without drying time
- Styrofoam ball, 2 inch
- gold fabric roses, about 40 (1/2 inch big)
- gold seed beads, about 40 (1/8 inch big or smaller)
- sheer gold ribbon, 12 inches (1/3 inch thick)
- gold wire edged burgundy ribbon, 20 inches (1 inch thick)
- Cut rose stems until they are 1 inch long.
- Take a rose and place a little glue at the end of the stem.
- Poke the stem into the Styrofoam ball.
- Repeat process, placing roses close together, until the whole ball is covered.
- Take a tiny bit of glue and dab it into the middle of a rose.
- Glue a gold, seed bead to the middle of the rose.
- Repeat process until all roses have beads and let dry.
- Fold the sheer gold ribbon in half and knot the two ends together, leaving only a tiny bit of ribbon at the edges.
- Glue the ribbon onto the top of the ornament.
- Tie burgundy ribbon into a bow with long ends.
- Glue the bow over the place where the ornament and sheer ribbon meet.
- Let dry.
