Step 2: Tear the egg cartons into three seperates.
Step 4: Tear along the inside edges of each "petal"
Step 5: Clean up the edges by rounding them up by tearing.
Step 6: Using hot glue, start gluing the rose petals into layers. Layer each petal to where they don't line up the same, as if its "blooming"
Step 7: Cut a strip from the egg carton for the middle.
Step 8: Curl the strip.
Step 9: Hot Glue the curl in the middle of the layered petals.
Begin Spray painting the roses. In this case I did 28 per color. Red vs. White.
Detail painting to add depth among the colors in the roses. (highlights, lowlights, shadow). Also, hot glue the magnets onto the backside of all the roses.
Roses Attached to a costume piece.
Roses attached to an actor
Roses attached to a rose bush that was lowered during the first scene of the play. Chicken wire based, the magnets easy stuck on the bush so the actors could "pick" the roses.
