I bought two sets of Rose Paper Garlands a while back and thought it would be a great idea to show you many ways of using them. One was in pink and the other a cream they are not vibrant and look somewhat aged and very shabby chic. I wanted to do something different other than draping over a mirror or a headboard so here a few ideas.
Here is my chandelier very basic but never the less pretty.
Oh and the net curtains are new I bought these a while back but decided to put them up and let the sunlight in, I want to get my hands on a pair of Rachel Ashwell curtains for winter but they are so expensive to buy on ebay I wish Target delivered overseas or had a online store "sad face".
Ikea net curtains.
This is how I have the paper rose garland draped around the chandelier I can hear alarm bells HOUSE FIRE!!! the fire service would have a field day in this room. As long as they aren't touching the bulbs I am sure they are safe, I have seen plenty of Christmas garlands hanging off light fittings so why not roses.
They don't have to be neat as you can see I have thrown these on they are a little fiddly.
The cream rose garland I have draped over the top of the dresser I love the romantic feel that they give to the room.
I used Antoinette and Original chalk paint by Annie Sloan mixed and painted this light shade I now use it as toilet paper holder but you can fill a bird cage with these roses and maybe add a few fairy lights and it would look beautiful.
I added the roses to this candelabra its rather full jam packed with paper roses but you can always cut the garland to size. These are for sale on ebay I found them cheaper there rather than online stores you can usually pay £9 each for these garlands. They are flexible and easy to manipulate to frame almost anything if you are looking for something smaller I know Primark sell a head garland they are great for twisting around candle holders ect.
I would like to say a big hello to all of my new followers its not easy finding an audience when you first start out, it was only a month ago when a friend on here pointed out that my blog was not even visible to the world so I am learning. Thank you for all your lovely comments it means so much to me I hope you are all having a lovely week.
