I have finally managed to get a climbing rose in bright pink! I also bought a peach/pinkish coloured rose for my balcony. Oh! They are a delight to look at! The dainty, delicate branches dance in the cool breeze.
Inspired by the roses in the balcony, I made a few from paper. I got the template from The Elli blog. I don’t own a printer and besides who would pass up the opportunity to paint roses? So, I got my colours out and put my dusty skills to use. They are not perfectly coloured but then again, which flowers are?
I folded them up and glued it all together like in THIS tutorial and suddenly I had permanent roses! I plan on giving them leaves and other features if possible. A little bit of DIY is good for health.
Maybe I should crochet a few flowers to keep them company in this cold weather. 🙂
