Turk’s Head Wedding Roses In The Wild

These are the wedding roses I made from paracord. They were made by nesting Turk’s Head knots and a couple of Pineapple interweaves into blossoms and buds. The knotted leaves and stems were made from sinnets of green paracord. The foliage on the table is the real thing, gathered from living plants. The roses among the leaves on the table are the ones I made. As far as I can tell, they used only a couple of the plaited leaves on the cake as props to steady the roses. The happy couple was happy with my roses — enough to carry them to reuse on another ceremony, to be held wherever the rest of the families live.

Rather than repeat the things I said when I first posted them, these are the links to those posts:

I also made some Turk’s Head roses a while ago for My Lady Rose. She wore these on a hat for a “Run for the Roses” best hat contest — she won going away.

This is the main stem of roses from the hat.

I also made a bracelet with a small blossom and two leaves on it for this outfit — as near as I can tell, the Gods Of Ropes And Knots stole them late on some moonless night.

At this point there is no way that I will ever be able to quit making these roses — of course there are worse things to have to do, or be known for. The real hard part is going to be making them better every time.

I am open to any suggestions on how I can improve them. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for coming by my site. I hope you enjoyed your visit; come back soon:
