DIY Crepe Paper Flowers
I recently spotted a sensational bouquet of paper flowers inside my favorite (and the ultimate) boutique for creative inspiration, Castles In The Air. A combination of Mexican paper flowers and those ever so popular tissue paper pom poms, these vibrant and cheerful flowers make perfect ornaments for any celebration. Plus, they’re incredibly easy to make! You’ll need:6 – 7 pieces of 180 gram florist crepe paper cut into 20″ x 30″ sheets (it’s important to use heavyweight crepe paper for it’s stretchiness and strength)6 – 7 small binder clips or large paper clips16 gauge floral wire (last seen here)heavy duty scissors First, lay out the sheets of crepe paper and fold each one into an accordion. The folds should measure about 2-3 inches thick and should be creased along the natural, horizontal lines of the crepe paper. Keep each bundle bound together by a small binder clip or large paper clip. With scissors, trim the ends into rounded and pointy shapes. Unbind each bundle.
