Decorating Ideas ~ How to Make a Rose Ornament

Sorry  I haven't written much except a little on Instagram this past week ~ I've been battling a really bad head cold and I'm
just beginning to feel better.
With that  I looked back to some older posts I had written and
I came across this photograph in a post that I had written
about a peacock tea party at our home in California.

I had wanted to share a tutorial on how to make this sweet
little rose ornament and found that I never did
Here we are to remedy that today!

How to make a Rose Ornament

Supplies you'll need

faux silk roses for the top piece and leaves
sewing thread or embroidery floss
a large doll needle
styrofoam balls in size for your project
decorative ribbon for trimming
small tassels found on decorative trims
fabric scraps
hot glue gun and glue


Glue fabric scrap over one-half of the styrofoam ball.

Glue on fancy lace or any ribbon trim with dangles

around the middle of your decoration.

Glue leaves over the other half of ball facing down.

Glue a silk rose or other flowers centered on top
of the leaves.

Attach a hanger made of embroidery thread or a saved
ribbon or hanger from previously purchased clothes
using the long doll needle ~ run up through the bottom
of the ball through the flower.
*This is a great way to repurpose and recycle those cute hanging tags we get
from purchased clothes at a big box club store or from a department store.*

Add a hanging ornament, crystal or tassel to the bottom
of your ornament if so desired.
*This can be done at the same time as attaching the hanger
as I've done with these small ornaments ~ just make
string long enough to tie on the hanging decoration
plus enough to to through the flower and
create the hanger.


I made  many of these in various sizes and with
sunflowers, blue violets and other flowers as tops then
gave them away as favors at a tea and also as
gifts at Christmas time.

These are pretty and festive and can be adapted
for any occasion ~ these little ornaments would be
super cute hanging off the backs of chairs at a
bridal shower, a wedding, or at a Mother's Day luncheon.
Just think how cute they would be hanging on
a mobile at a baby shower with little pink or blue ribbons
and coordinating flowers.
