These trendy, crafted flowers will look amazing in bouquets or décor!
 
 
I was inspired by a pre-made version and quickly realized how easy the flowers are to whip up! Consider making a bouquet for everyone in your wedding party or a few dozen to construct a ceremony backdrop.
 
Materials:
  • Extra long crepe paper in the colors of your choice
  • Floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Green floral tape
 
 
Step One:
Working horizontally, begin by folding your crepe paper in a small accordion fold. Use your finger to gently roll over the top 1/4 inch of the paper giving it a pretty curled edge.
 
 
Step Two:
Place a floral wire half way up the paper at one end and begin rolling the paper up TIGHTLY. To get the exaggerated effect, focus on tightly gathering the bottom 1/4" of the paper, letting the top open wide. Tie off the flower at the base of the 'stem' with a simple thread and knot. It helps to have a second pair of hands for this part!
 
 
 
 
Step Three:
Wrap the entire stem with green floral tape.
