As you'll notice in the photos below, my foam wreath form is cut in a funky way. That's because I didn't have one, so I did the next best thing. I had a square pad of foam from some packaging and just did my best to cut out a wreath form with some scissors. If you've got an old book, before throwing it away, tear out the pages to use for some rosewood paper roses.
You'll want to cut circles and then cut spirals into the circles as shown in the photo above, that you will use you' little fingers to wrap into the shape of a rose. To make your rose look nice and full, use two sheets of paper that you cut, then wrap at the same time.
Little by little your rosewood wreath will begin to take shape and the funnest part will be deciding where to hang it! I still don't know where I'll put mine...
