Handmade Rosebud Ornaments

Some blogging friends and I got together to created some fabulous handmade ornaments. Here’s a look at some of their great work. Mine is the cute rosebud ornament. Learn how to make them below. For the nitty gritty on the other ornaments, simply click on their link listed after the rosebud ornament tutorial. You can also pin them for later.

Rosebud ornaments are easy to make and add a nice scent to your Christmas tree. Did you know that people drink rosebud tea? It has been prescribed as part of Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years to aid in circulation, PMS and several other medical conditions. So when you are looking for the dried rosebuds for this project you will likely find rosebud tea is readily available.

Materials

Styrofoam balls (I used 1 1/2 inch and 2 1/2 inch)
Rosebuds – approx 60 for 1/1/2 in or approx. 160 for 2 1/2

Pins
Ribbon
Craft Glue

Simply dip the base of the rosebud in craft glue and press into the Styrofoam ball. Continue packing tightly around the ball.

Pierce the ribbon with the pin and dip it also in the glue before inserting into the ball. You can do this in the beginning but I like to do it about half way through so it doesn’t get in the way. 

Note: Buy more than you think you need of the roses. Some will break and not be usable for the project. Save them for a potpourri project like my Layered Potpourri Jars. Also, save a few of the smallest buds to use at the end to make sure that you completely cover the entire ball.

Happy Crafting.

  1. I love those dried roses, years ago I was a florist and I remember when they arrived, they had a nice scent to them. Most dried flowers would make me sneeze but these little roses were a nice welcome. Cute ornament very elegant. Carole .

    • Thanks Carole! You are so right. They are very fragrant as most dried flowers are not. I always wanted to be a florist since I was little. Blogging about home and garden has been a way to do something similar. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Wow…you and your friends are very talented. I used to craft all of the time…never makes it to the top of my list anymore. I love the idea of the rosebud ornament. Roses are one of my favorite flowers and I think the smell would be lovely…’specially since we use an artificial tree! Thanks for the ideas!

  7. Beautiful! I never would have thought of using dried roses to create an ornament, but it totally works. 🙂
