The beauty of these rosettes is that they can be any size or design you like, so you can incorporate them easily into any Christmas theme.
Christmas gift wrap
Using leftover wrapping paper, select a piece that is about 10 x 34cm for a large wreath, or about 5.5 x 17 cm for a smaller wreath.
Lay the paper out in front of you and concertina fold from one end to the other. On a large piece, the folds should be about 2cm strips, and about 1cm on a smaller piece. To do a concertina fold: fold the paper once, turn it over, fold again and then repeat all the way along to the end.
Once you are finished, fold the pleated strip in half and press together firmly.
Using florist's wire, secure the centre with a length of the wire, wound round and then twisted to keep secure.
Open out the strip and glue down one half of one side.
Fan out the rosette and stick the unglued edge to the glued one.
Repeat on the other side to make a complete circle.
Secure with paper clips or pegs while the glue dries.
Now you can either stick this up as a wreath, or make some more and make a garland.
Thread a needle with thick wool thread or string and then thread through the rosettes.
