Featured Item: ROSEBUD HEART…See How We Make Them

 

 

you definately CAN make this yourself...yep...but do you wanna?

 

Here is the link to “buy” this beautiful “Rosebud Heart”  http://www.katecourysfarmhouse.com/shop/shop/year-round-wreaths/rosebud-heart

Even though I sell these on my website it is always fun to know how to do it yourself.  It is a little time consuming but if you have the time to sit a spell then try it out.

Now, you can use any color roses you want…you can use blue roses (yuck) or black roses (yucker)…..I use pink.

you definately CAN make this yourself…yep…but do you wanna?

First we start with a backing of potpourri on a styrofoam shaped heart.

We then begin to add the rosebuds. We use something called “buton” rosebuds…No, not button…”buton” they are teeny tiny cute little buds.

We leave gaps in  the design so we can prep them for the next step which is gluing in the celocia coxcomb.

Next we put Globe Amaranth around the edges to finish off the look.

Slap a ribbon on that baby and call it good! No call it great…well, you don’t have to call it anything…just enjoy.

Finished product

 

Watch the video (the amaturishly bad) video….(the one with the bad lighting and poor editing) video, the video thats music sounds like a porn flick! and see if you still want to make one.

I do apologize ahead of time for the “sucky quality” of the video as it was the first time I added music and edited a video …..I promise I will get better…so be patient with me ok?

OK! I KNOW that totally SUCKS! SO SHUT UP!!!!

    I laughed so hard after reading your video comments. What a crack up. The video was great and not at all like you said.

  3. Hlynnknits says:

    You are way too funny to make something like that with that kind of sense of humor!

  4. Hlynnknits says:

    Sure do love those little rosey hearts. How many millions did you have to make for Valentines Day orders??? And the video is lovely – the swanky porn music sets it off so well.

    • gerknoop says:

      Not millions! ha! We actually did this for the cover if “Gardeners Eden” catalog some years back, so only around a thousand or so lol!! And the porn music? Yes, lovely touch no?

    Where can I buy rose butons wholesale? I used to have a flower shop, but my old wholesaler is no longer in business. When I see buds now, they are retail and I can’t pay retail to use to sell. Thanks

    • katecoury says:

      I would be happy to sell you some via my wholesale business Northwest Designs.
      How much are you looking for? We sell them by the lb. You can contact me via the phone number on my web site and I will give you a call back with our wholesale contact information. Thanks Barbie~
