This simple but gorgeous Shaggy rose is a fun and easy kid’s craft!

Shaggy rose

You will need

  • 4 wooden skewers
  • tape
  • crêpe paper in colour of your choice
  • scissors
  • green ribbon
  • thin green card
  • clear glue

To make

  1. Tape the skewers together to form a ‘stem’.
  2. Cut the crêpe paper into several similar-sized heart shapes to be used as ‘petals’. Your petals needn’t be identical.
  3. ‘Stretch’ the two sides of the crêpe hearts with your thumbs to give them a rose petal curved shape, and start taping them one by one around the end of the stem until you have a full rose head.
  4. Cut leaves from the green card and tape these at the base of the bloom.
  5. Glue and wrap ribbon from the bottom of the stem, working up to glue the top end over the leaves’ bases.
