How to make pipe cleaner rose rings.

I fell in love with these little pipe cleaner rose rings that I saw on Martha, and since I am such a visual person, I thought it would be fun to share the How-To in pictures here.

Here’s How to make them:

What you need:
-6 pipe cleaners all the same colors (your choice)
-1 green pipe cleaner (for the stem or leaf of the rose)

Step 1 – Gather together all 7 pipe cleaners needed to make one pipe cleaner rose.
Step 2 – Twist the 6 (same colors) together in the center.
Step 3 – Wrap it around the finger that you want it for, then slide it off.
Step 4 – Open them up like spider legs.

Step 5 – Give each end a little bend and squeeze it tight.
Step 6 – Roll each one in like a snail, pulling in tight as you go.
Step 7 – Once they are all rolled in make then look more rose like by moving them around.
Step 8 – Twist the green around and roll in to look like petals.

Easy enough?! These would be a great activity to do with the kids. Perfect for Valentine’s Day too!

    I am a mom of only boys, but this is rockin' awesome!

    I just might make these as b-day party favor fillers for the little girls who attend our next b-day party. :)

    OMG! I love these! I saw these on the Martha wedding website and made these for the girls at my wedding. They loved them and wore them all night!! My mom thought they were so cute that she made and used these for napkin rings! Thanks for sharing!

    I don’t know if you are aware that Wendy The Pipecleaner Lady is the creator and designer of the rose ring. Her extraordinary talent to twist pipe cleaners into more designs than you can imagine is what landed her on the Martha Stewart Show.
    Since you are enjoying twisting her ring, go to her website where you can see more of her fabulous creations at
