Directions How To Make A Hankie Rose

  1. Iron a hankie flat
  2. Fold the handkerchief in half horizontally
  3. Fold the handkerchief in half horizontally again
  4. Fold the handkerchief once more horizontally; you now have a long narrow handkerchief tube
  5. From approx 2 inches from the right hand side of the hankie, fold the hankie down to create a right angle
  6. Fold the hankie over tightly against the right angle to create the bud (I like wrinkling the narrow hankie tube from the left to create a more realistic look)
  7. Now twist the hankie around the bud, but looser, until the rose is the fullness you want.
  8. To finish the rose, wrap the base of the rose with floral wire.
  9. Shape the 'petals' of the rose by gently spreading out the wrapped hankie
  10. Wrap the exposed floral wire around the base of the rose
  11. Repeat steps 1-10 five times to create 5 individual rose buds
  12. Glue the roses into the bouquet holder
  13. Congratulations you have created a beautiful bridal hankie bouquet
