Palm roses are one type of craft made out of palm leaves for Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday is a Christian holiday that falls on the Sunday before Easter, marking Jesus's arrival in Jerusalem. Followers laid palms on the ground in front of him, which is why palm plays a central role in the holiday and its decorations.
You need 2 tapered leaves of equal length connected at the bottom. The rose will have a center only if the palm leaf is tapered and becomes smaller as you fold. The width of the palm can be up to 1/2" at the base.
Step 1: Beginning at about 2" from the base, fold one leaf back, slanting 45° to the left
Step 2: Fold the other leaf back, again at a 45° angle under it
Step 3: Fold the first under again continuing in in a counter-clockwise motion, bringing the "rose" as it is now appearing, over the front of the stem
Step 4: Since the palm is tapered, the rose begins to become smaller as you continue. When you feel you have a nice rose, secure the center with a pin or inserting the ends into the weave. You can either trim the ends, or let ends spin off. The center of the rose can be decorated with sequins, a tiny ribbon, or just a knot. It does not need to be decorated if done well. Roses look nice alone or in a bouquet of roses. A palm rose bouquet is welcome as a gift to the person who has everything money can buy! If hung on the wall, the roses can open and hang down, forming a nice spiral. Some leave the folds tufted, not pulled tight, for a rounded effect.
Step 5: to make a bouquet, you make about 20 roses and make a bouquet.
