Wrap folded sheer ribbon roses around LED x-mas lights to create....Glowing Ribbon Roses.
Very easy once you are able to create a folded ribbon rose.
Just wrap the rose around the LED light,securing the base to the under part of the light where the wires are.
If you want to,you can then cover with floral tape and even ad leaves if desired.
Try different colors of ribbon on different colored lights.
Here I used a sheer lavender ribbon over a blue LED string of lights.
And the results are almost 'other worldly',if you ask me.
Also,for a few years now I have made large roses (increase the ribbon width) for my moms Christmas tree and it is a very elegant DIY tree decoration for the holidays.

Hi , Thanks so much for the comments.
I just put up a quick and ugly 'how-to' on the folding technique that I prefer.
It should be up on the site soon.
There are lots of ways to fold a ribbon rose,the concertina rose being the most common I think.
I use the folded square rose because it is
fuller with more layers that become petals.
I really look forward to seeing what others will do with this project.
