Do yourself some beautiful yellow roses from leaves! An autumn bouquet of natural materials will also make a child happy if he needs to make crafts in the garden, and you yourself, perfectly fitting into any interior and bringing an elegant autumn touch to the house.
Autumn crafts: roses from leaves
In order to make a bouquet of such roses or only one rose, you will need:
- yellow maple leaves, at least 5 pcs. for each flower (it is best to take exactly maple trees - they have the optimal size and shape; you must choose the leaves without damage or with minimal damage (for example, one or two holes, eaten by insects, it doesn’t matter, but the absence of a part of the leaf is undesirable) and long , durable cuttings - these will be the “stems” of each rose);
- natural twine (to secure the leaves in each “bud”). In general, any sufficiently thick thread will suit, for example, yarn, but natural twine / twine has a suitable shade, besides it is an environmentally friendly material.
How to do:
Take the maple leaf, put the handle to yourself and bend it in half - across, so that the inside of the leaf is hidden. Then start gently rolling it into a tight tube, starting from the right edge. Make sure that the sheet is not unwound, and the tube was as tight as possible!
Then bend in the same way, in half, the second sheet, and begin to fold it, putting on the right edge of the already finished tube. The second sheet should, as it were, wrap the first one, still tight enough, but now freer than the first time.
Repeat three more times - and each subsequent time wrap the sheet more and more freely. Roses have a tight, tightly folded middle and more widely growing petals at the edges - this is what should be imitated in a rose of maple leaves.
Smoothly straighten the leaves in the “bud” so that they lie as you like, and move the last two slightly lower, so the rose will look more natural.
Then firmly tie the finished rose with a piece of string; the knot must fasten not only the cuttings of the leaves, but also the leaves themselves, so it should be tied at the very base of the “bud” (otherwise the leaves are not fastened together).If it seems to you that they will fall apart, roll the rose anew, denser; you can try adding glue inside the rose or sticking it with a toothpick, but if you fold the flower correctly and if the leaves do not have various damages, it will not be necessary.
Repeat as many times as you want to make roses in your bouquet.
Now you can make yourself a bouquet: you can leave just roses, they will look beautiful in any case, but usually a few more leaves are added to the autumn bouquet "for the background" - just as florists add green twigs to the bouquets of ordinary flowers, only in this bouquet leaves will be, of course, also yellow.
Just place them next to the roses in a vase or other stand where the bouquet will be fixed. You can arrange the leaves in different ways, most often from several sheets make the back of the composition standing upright, and a few leaves from the front are bent forward so that they do not cover the flowers.
Vase for such a bouquet, you can use any, as long as it was low. You can "put" a bouquet not in the vase at all, but in a stand with plasticine or sand, so that the "roses" hold on well, or you can simply put the bouquet on a shelf or coffee table (then tie it once more with string, "The leaves did not fall out).Such a bouquet of maple leaves can last for a very long time, it will not fade, but will dry, retaining both its color and its autumn charm.
