How to make a rose from paper towel

Crafting a beautiful rose out of a paper towel is a fun and creative project that anyone can enjoy. You can make multiple roses in different colors to create a beautiful bouquet that will last much longer than real flowers. Enjoy the process of creating these paper towel roses and let your creativity bloom!

You will need:

  • Scrunch-dyed paper towel
    • A long thin craft stick, chopstick or a straw
    • Craft glue
    • Yarn in green
  • How to:

    1. Cut your paper towel in half
    2. Fold one half in half length-wise
    3. Fold the folded edge in half way.
    4. Apply a small amount of craft glue to the top edge of your stick and wrap the strip of paper towel around and around, gluing the end down
    5. Fold your second half of paper towel in half length-wise once
    6. Glue one edge to the rose you have begun making, it will be slightly longer to give you room to cover the other piece
    7. Wrap around and around, gradually moving the folded edge a little lower than the starting point
    8. Glue the outer edge down, and if you like you can fold the outside edges of your ‘petals’ down a little to look like a rose

    Where the base of the rose joins the craft stick, tie some yarn tightly and wrap around to cover the join.
