Twiggy Rose Arrangement


  • Thin twigs of various lengths
  • A dozen roses
  • Large glass vase
  • White spray paint
  • Hot pink spray paint
  • Newspaper or drop cloth
  • Scissors


  1. Gather a bundle of tall, thin twigs from your local floral supply store or get the kids involved and see who can find the most twigs in the back yard!

  2. In order to get the most vibrant color on the dark sticks, prime them with a coat of white spray paint first. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and to use a drop cloth or newspaper.

  3. After the primer has dried, spray the twigs with pink spray paint.

  4. Cut the stem roses so that an inch is remaining below the flower.

  5. Spear the rose onto the end of the twig. If the twig is too wide, simply whittle down the tip with a scissors.

  6. Place the twigs in large vases and arrange on tabletop.
