There are lots of great reasons to celebrate during spring, and our easy-to-make paper flowers make great decor elements for everything from showers to birthdays to Mother’s Day celebrations. Take a look at our tutorial below and consider adding some wilt-free floral decor to your spring fetes.
- Crepe paper streamers in desired color(s)
- Fringe scissors
- Regular scissors
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks
- Green floral tape
- Floral wire
Step 1: Cut an 18” piece of yellow streamer, and fringe one side using fringe scissors.
Step 2: Glue piece of yellow fringe to floral wire, uncut-side down.
Step 3: Roll the fringe around the wire and glue the end to secure – this will be the center of your flower. Hold the bottom of the flower center and roll the stem through your fingers so that the ends touch the stem.
Step 4: Roll a bundle of streamer in the color of your choice and cut when you reach your desired size.
Step 5: Cut the loop on both sides of the bundle.
Step 6: Hold the pile of crepe paper together and cut in the shape of a petal.
Step 7: Glue a petal to the center of your flower, wrapping the bottom around the stem.
Step 8: Continue to attach petals with glue, filling in any empty space as you alternate.
Step 9: Repeat steps 4-6 to make leaves out of green streamer, and glue on either side of flower.
Step 10: Glue floral tape to the base of your flower, wrap the floral wire all the way to the bottom of the stem, and glue.
