Origami rose trees

origami rose tree for alice in wonderland themed party

As part of the aforementioned Mad Hatter themed birthday dinner Iwanted to create some mini-rose tree table decorations aka the Queens garden from Alice in Wonderland, complete with white and spray painted roses. Originally I tried to get hold of some fake roses on ebay but I missed the auction and didn’t really want to miss the opportunity of a creative challenge anyway.

I found some instructions on youtube for 3d folded roses, but be warned they are pretty damn tricky, so definitely not a first origami project. (This project could work just as well with crumpled crepe paper roses instead)
