Shabby Rose Tutorial

An easy way to make a shabby rose embellishment is to buy a packet of wood pieces in the shape of this elipse.
Next, thread hole almost all the way through with tule cut 15" by 2", and tie a short knot on one side.

Using hot glue, secure twisted tule from inner to outer edge.
Rub pastel color over tule and spray with Aquanet hairspray to secure.  Cut the little tail from the back side of the wood. Glue the base of the wood onto your surface to embellish.
Each rose takes less than 5 minutes to create and the cost is low for tule, the wood pieces, and the hot glue-Maybe less than 50 cents each.
