Everlasting Rose Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

If you need a last-minute corsage idea for your wedding, why not create one that will last forever? This WireLace rose has the delicate look of a real flower, but will never wilt! It will add floral beauty to the bridal party's ensemble and can be treasured as a keepsake for years to come. See more amazing DIY ideas for your wedding right here.

Step one:
Cut a length of the WireLace 6mm ribbon in olive approximately 15 inches long. Manipulate the ends so that they stretch out into leaf-like shapes that are about two inches long each. Brush the manipulated ends with Mod Podge to slightly stiffen them and allow to dry. Set aside for now.

Step two:
Manipulate your one yard piece of WireLace 6mm ribbon in blush so that it displays an alternating thick and thin pattern. The thick parts will be part of the petals on the rose, so make sure the shapes look petal-like. Repeat this step for your one yard piece of WireLace 6mm ribbon in rose gold.

Step three:
Hold the blush and rose gold pieces together, one on top of the other. Wrap them together in a spiral, holding on to the bottom of the center of the rose. As you wrap, grab on to the ends that have spiraled together in the rose shape.

Step four:
Take a six inch piece of craft wire and fold two inches of it down. Use the craft wire to pierce the bottom of the flower to catch all of the layers of WireLace. This will hold the flower together nicely. Use the craft wire to pierce the middle of your olive piece of WireLace so that the leaves cup the bottom of your flower.

Step five:
Manipulate the petals of your flower until they take on the desired shape. Cover the craft wire with floral tape and shape it to look like a stem.
