Hello! The Crescent Rose we made was actually a very quick project, but here’s how we made it!
You’re going to need a long inch or half inch PVC tube for the rod portion, inch and half inch insulation foam, craft foam, paper mâché materials, paint, skewers, hot glue, e6000, and lots of time and patience.
Once you’ve got your materials, you need to size your crescent rose and see how big you want it to be. It’s a little bit shorter than her, so she drew out an appropriately sized pattern and cut out the individual pieces.
Most of the scythe was cut out of the insulation foam and then sanded to give it an edge. Once it was all sanded, it was paper mâchéd with a mixture of tacky glue and water. Once it dried, a tacky glue layer was put overtop, and a hole burned into the piece in which the scythe would sit, then hot glued the rod into the insulation foam. Then the pieces were put together using the skewers on some parts for support, hot glue, and E6000. Careful not to get any E6000 on the insulation foam or else it’ll burn right through!
Once the insulation pieces were put together, the craft foam detail pieces were glued on (the “eye” of the scythe, back detailing, all of the details on the rod portion are put on with craft foam, etc).
Once it was all together, it was spray painted black, then put a couple silver spray painted silver pieces on, then painted with the red and black over again. And then we sealed the paint.
Yay, crescent rose! Hope this helped! Will be posting a finished pic soon!
