Rosebud ornaments are easy to make and add a nice scent to your Christmas tree. Did you know that people drink rosebud tea? It has been prescribed as part of Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years to aid in circulation, PMS and several other medical conditions. So when you are looking for the dried rosebuds for this project you will likely find rosebud tea is readily available.

Handmade Rosebud Ornaments
Simply dip the base of the rosebud in craft glue and press into the Styrofoam ball. Continue packing tightly around the ball.
Pierce the ribbon with the pin and dip it also in the glue before inserting it into the ball. You can do this in the beginning but I like to do it about halfway through so it doesn't get in the way.
Note: Buy more than you think you need of the roses. Some will break and not be usable for the project. Save them for a potpourri project like my Layered Potpourri Jars. Also, save a few of the smallest buds to use at the end to make sure that you completely cover the entire ball.
The smell of the rosebuds is so wonderful and will lightly permeate the rooms.
Nothing overpowering unless you cover the tree with them, but a few hung here and there adds a nice romantic touch with the bonus of fragrance.
These rosebuds ornaments also make great gifts.
They can be used to hang in your closet and act like a pomander.
A little too pretty to hide in the closet though, if you ask me.
