Hi Guys ! As promised ... For this week , i wanted to do something really amazing or really simple ... i chose amazing!! The total cost for this D-I-Y is $1175.00
You Will Need :
- 2 Clear Round/ Square Plates
- 1 champagne /Margarita flute
- Tissue paper 3-4 ( Depending on how thick you want your roses)
- Super Glue / Hot Glue Gun
Glue the base and rim of the glass firmly to the middle of the plates. If you use a hot glue gun , make sure that it is not too hot as it can crack or break the glass. You should now see what kinda looks like a cupcake stand.
Cut your Tissue Paper in 4 equal parts . From each part , you are now going simply roll them until you begin to see what looks like the inside of a rose begins to form. The reason why i said 4 parts is because you can simply cut them into smaller pieces , instead of cutting 100 individual roses.
( Isn't that cool)
Place some glue at the back of the plates. To save time , do it all around instead of one by one .
Attach your "roses" to the plate. Allow to dry for a few minutes . If you have pearls , or any other embellishments , you can also add them now. ( Shown in Step 3 above)
After the glass has completely dried . Add your favorite little things and enjoy:-)
Tip : For a more personalized look , paint or spray paint your stand to match with your room . I chose not to do this to mine because i have no idea what colour i want my room to be in this year , so clear was the best choice for me .
