It has been nearly five years since we made our first crepe paper Juliet rose! For our Member Make workshop this month, Meagan has come up with a new way to make this popular flower. Join us on the 18th at 11:00 am PDT for our live workshop, or you can always watch the recording here later.
To get ready for the workshop, see our tools and materials list below.
Craft a classic
We are so excited to show your our updated version of this classic David Austin rose. Similar to the real flower, our crepe paper Juliet rose is a fully cupped bloom with many layers and petals nested in the center. Typically these roses are a light peachy-pink color, but you can make them in whatever color you like.
Along with showing you how to make the full bloom, Meagan will also be teaching you how to make the buds so you can make your own bouquet. If you have not joined us for our Member Make workshop before, be sure to read our instructions below on how to participate!
Skill level: Intermediate
Crafting tips: Building this flower while holding it upside down helps the petals stay in place. Once completed, hang the flower upside down until the tacky glue dries.
