Make use of fallen leaves with this rose bouquet craft that can be a great centerpiece, gift, or fun DIY project!
- Starting with a smaller leaf, fold the points in, with the colorful side facing out. Continue rolling the leaf inward to create the look of a bud.
- With another leaf, roll the centermost point downward, placing the first leaf in the middle. Continue folding the points down, wrapping the sides around the first leaf.
- Keep adding leaves, turning the bouquet as you work to make it symmetrical.
- When the bouquet reaches your desired size, wrap the stems of the leaves with floral tape to keep secure. Cut the end of the stems with scissors, or, if you want to keep them longer, attach the twigs to the ends of the stems using additional floral tape.
Tip: The smaller leaves work better in the center of the bouquet, with the larger leaves working best on the outside.
