dried rose wreath...

Hi girls, the roses I dried the other day are now ready to be used for my wreath. Not exactly how I planned it because it was supposed to be a heart shape but I'm still happy with it.
Here is the finished product...

I had some tulle on hand so I decided to use a bit of that here and there to soften the look.

I was inspired to do this after reading this post by Anne at White Lace Cottage..

I threaded the wire through the tip of the roses and used the smaller ones at either end and the larger ones in the middle.  I did use a needle first to create the hole for the wire to go through as the wire I used was not very strong.

so it turned out a little floppy.. next time I'll use a stronger wire..

I really like the look of this rose when dried as well as fresh..

I think I might just make another one! 
take care,
