Once you have about 40 paper roses, grab your twine and follow the below steps. If you’re not feeling up to making all 40, no worries; these garlands look great with even just a few place in the center of your garland. paper rose garland


1. Take a strand of twine and double it up.  The length of your twine will be dependent on where you plan on hanging the garland,  so make sure to measure your space first and then double that distance in twine.

2. Take each rose and loop the floral wire stem around the twine, wrapping tightly to secure.

3. Continue adding on roses until you’ve reached the opposite end of your twine. Then secure the garland to your desired display location and adjust the roses so that they’re all outward facing.  For long garlands, it may be easier to assemble the roses onto your twine after the twine has been set in place, to accommodate for any movement or twists in the twine.

    hello, these are really beautiful! since Valentine’s day is coming up I really want to make these. Can you tell me what kind of paper you used? Can’t tell if it’s tissue paper, printer paper, construction or something else. Thanks!

      Hi! Sorry for delay – I used tracing paper and handpainted the sheets, but regular construction paper works great too. My paper crown was made from construction paper, which you can see here:

      Best of luck with the crafting! xx
