It is purely by accident that this post showing you how to make wonderful paper poppies in just a few simple steps follows my post sharing with you the real thing now in bloom on our grassy hillsides!

I actually made these simple DIY paper poppies two weeks ago for a women's gathering in our community, and well, as you know life is busy and at present time I only get around to photographing maybe half of what I actually make! I'm hoping the other half will eventually end up in a book or series of some kind, but don't hold your breath as I haven't been able to magically add more time to the day. Speaking of time, these paper poppies which can be made in many sizes are really quite quick once you get the hang of it, and you could make quite a few of these to use as centerpieces for an event with say ten or even twenty tables. Enlist the help of two friends, set aside two evenings, and voila, gorgeous and original centerpieces will grace every table. Creative jewish mom. Damask Love.

In a garden, the long, smooth stems blend in with the other greenery, and the big globes of tiny periwinkle flowers almost seem to float in mid-air. I imagine them growing in a fairytale garden, alongside foxgloves and moon flowers. When I set out to design a paper version, I wanted to capture that enchanted, ethereal quality.

I chose a very lightweight crepe for the petals, and constructed it so that each floret radiates out from a central ball on a long wire. I wanted the flower to feel free-spirited, so I cut my petals freehand, which creates little variations between florets. This allium isn’t especially difficult to make, but producing enough florets to complete the globe is a big undertaking. If you run out of steam before finishing, don’t despair!
