This post may have information on how to rose petal craft ideas , flower petal craft,  gulabi patti haar or mala .

 This can be used for decoration for festivals viz Varalakshmi Pooja, Dasara Diwali or for occasions like wedding , baby shower.  Also can be tried for craft projects. 

We have to be careful while handing the petals because they can tear easily, also we have to be careful when handling the needle , so avoid giving to children. 

Of course we should be careful too when we handle the needle.  If you would like to have a look at a colourful rose rangoli with dots for Diwali 

obviously Rangolisansdots being a website primarily for rangoli or kolam , it is available with steps and colours 

or for that matter I even have a hibiscus kolam with 7 dots  created by me 


We can tie both ends to form a garland 


We need roses, long or medium size needle, thread and vaseline


Apply vaseline on the needle,  this ensures that petals do not tear when we make the garland


Remove all the petals gently, simultaneously 


Choose petal of almost same size


Insert a stalk to form the base and  to hold the flowers


Fold the petals - first inward and then both edges outward


Insert the folded petal in the needle


Insert 8 petals at right angles to each other and one above the other


Draw the set of 8 petals to the bottom


Continue with the next set of petals


After completing insert the  stalk of a rose to hold the flowers at the top ,  this is in addition to the stalk placed at the bottom

Tie above the stalk to hold all the petals together


Beautiful rose petal garland ( gulabi hoovu )  is ready for decoration
