How to make a ribbon rose with wired ribbon
All you'll need to make a beautiful ribbon rose is 1.3m of wired ribbon, a tack stitch, and a little guidance from our video tutorial above.
Ribbon roses can be made with solid colour or ombré wired ribbon; you can make tight rosebuds with narrow ribbon, or big voluptuous blooms that could almost hold their own at the Chelsea Flower Show with wide ribbon. So we've put together a Ribbon Rose Craft Kit which lets you experiment with a couple of different widths, our solid colour, and ombré wire edged ribbons. These styles look truly gorgeous together, but if you'd prefer to choose your own ribbons, take a look at our full Wire Edge Ribbon Collection and select your favourites.
Once you've made your beautiful creations, you can sew them onto lampshades, curtains, or cushions, make a fabulous corsage, pop onto a hat, or simply display a selection of flowers in a glass bowl. A mix of colours looks fantastic and proportion also plays its part, so arrange different coloured mini-buds among bigger blooms (like those our kit will make) - all shades, shapes, and sizes jostling for space together.
We'd love to see and 'like' your creations on social media @vvrouleaux, so tag us in pics once you're finished!
