Doilly Rose


This pretty rosebud or rose craft is a lovely idea for summer, or perhaps for Mother's Day. It might take a little while to get the hang of the twisting and gluing required, but the finished result is worth it.

Doilly Rose

You will need:

White doillies
Green pipe cleaner


Cut a line from the edge of a doilly to the middle and then cut out the middle section. Make sure you leave some of the paper section inside the lace.

Begin rolling up the doilly, holding the paper end. Add dots of glue along the way to hold in place.

You can stop after one doilly to make a rosebud.

Using just one doilly makes this lovely rosebud!

To make a rose, prepare additional doillies the same way, glue on the end and keep rolling until you have a larger rose. Our rose is made from three doillies.

To finish, wrap a pipe cleaner around the bottom of the rose leaving the end loose to form the stem.
