Do you have a pile of rosette ribbons that you've been awarded, but no idea how to display them? This craft idea is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to get those rosettes out of boxes and out on display.
- 1 grapevine wreath (appx. 14”-16” diameter)
- low melt glue gun
- 10-15 rosettes
- floral wire (optional)
Choose 2 or 3 rosettes that will be the “bow” on your wreath, or the main focal point. These rosettes will keep their streamers – set them aside. Cut the streamers off of the rest of your rosettes. Remove any strings or other fasteners from all rosettes.
Arrange the rosettes on your wreath, to get an idea of where you will want to put them. The “bow” can be at the top center, bottom center, or to one side. Play around with different arrangements to get a feel for what will look best with your rosettes. Try to mix up sizes and styles, for a more balanced look.
Starting with the rosettes that will actually be touching the wood of the wreath, glue them one at a time using the low-melt glue gun. Check for what vines will actually be touching the back of the rosette, and put your glue there. If a rosette will be overlapping another rosette, put glue where they overlap for a firmer hold.
Thread a twist of floral wire through the back of the wreath to create a loop to hang it by, or use a standard wreath hanger. You're done! Find a place to display your creation and enjoy it for years to come!
