Giant Rose

I’ve been inspired to make the giant flowers you see as backdrops for photographs and walls.  My first try was a version with rounded petals. I had found a small flower with a more ruffled petal I really liked and couldn’t wait to see if the larger version would be as pretty.  I drew up a petal template in 3 sizes.  8 small, 12 medium and 6 large and proceeded to assemble the rose using a hot glue gun gluing opposite sides until the petals were gone.  I cut a small circle to glue to the back of the flower to neaten the backside.  Finished large rose is approx. 15 inches.  Sherlock is my model.  😊
