Jeans rose tutorial
- Recycled jeans
- Water based glue
1-Preparing petals, to do the day before ( must dry for 24 hours)
Cut a rectangle of jeans about 2" x 4"(5x10cm).
Cut from jeans shapes of petals like those in the pictures, you will need 3 smaller petals and 10 bigger petals.
Smaller petals are about 1,6"(4cm) high and bigger petals 2"(5cm).
Make a cut in the smaller petals, will be used to bend it and give it the shape of a rose petal.
Now you have all the elements to compose the rose.
Pass on all the petals and on the rectangle some glue diluited in a lot of water:
2- Composing the rose
When the petals are dry you can model them and they will retain the desired shape.
Glue the smaller petals in this way to gave them the right shape:
Model petals to imitate those of a real rose:
They will maintain the shape that you gave them.
Make the same thing with bigger petal:
Stick the first two tabs together and then the third:
Take the rectangle and bend it as shown in the picture below:
Begin to roll up it to form the inner part of the rose:
Fix it with a drop of glue and cut the excess.
Now you can start adding all the petals!
Stick the three smaller petals for first:
And then all the others, all around:
I used my rose to decor a bag, but it can be use for a lot of things, as a brooch, hairpin, to make a necklace, hair barretts...
What do you think of my rose?
Have other ideas to use it to decor?
