Tea rose from cotton pads

To create this wonderful bouquet, you will have to work for a couple of days, but the result will be stunning! For a bouquet of seven roses, we will need cotton wool disks (about 80 pcs.); paint for Easter eggs (yellow, red, orange, green); strong wire (about 2 meters long); PVA glue; pliers; green knitting thread; cutting pliers. And, of course, patience. So, we proceed to the manufacture of our beautiful roses. For the manufacture of the stem, we take a strong wire about 30 cm long and divide it into two veins (no more than 10 cm). One branch - the vein will serve as a stem for a flower, the other - a branch for leaves. Then one vein should be bare centimeters to 6 to the wire and fasten to it two more small ones with pliers, as shown in the photo.

Next, we wrap the entire wire with a green thread to make the stem look natural. Now the occupation will be more interesting: we will form buds.We do this step by step. 1. Pour water into a bowl, each for a separate paint; 2. Pour a little paint into the water. It is enough that she at least a little colored. 3. Put the required number of cotton discs for 5 minutes into each vessel.

It is advisable to put the finished stems with roses to dry on the grid, but you can hang them down with flowers . Now we start making leaves. We do this step by step too: 1. Take the wadded disks (for each flower will take three leaves, that means three discs) and cut out the shape of the leaves, folding the disc in half, carving in the "herringbone" type. 2.We paint them as well as the petals, but in green paint. 3. Leave to dry completely. 4. After drying, take the leaf and divide it slightly in half and grease the middle with PVA glue. 5. In the middle we put the wire intended for the leaves and press both sides. This is how we get leaves.
