Despite our incredibly mild Winter (except for the October snowstorm), I’m officially ready for Spring! The weather’s been quite warm. We have paper whites blooming on the dining room window sill, and I’m just in the mood for flowers, green grass, picnics, etc. Hence, today’s flowery DIY. One of my fave DIYs so far, and it only needs three supplies – wooden skewers, floral tape, and crinkled book pages (I used the same beautiful book of poetry as my paper tree DIY).
To create the stem, wrap the floral tape around three wooden skewers (overlapping approximately half the width of the tape), covering the skewers completely.
Shape the crinkled book pages into petals.
Using the floral tape, add one “petal” at a time, carefully spacing around the skewer stem. Simply bunch the petal at the bottom, place it on the stem, and wrap the tape around a few times. It will look as if the paper is growing out of the stem.
Enjoy your pretty flowers.
These paper flowers would be wonderful as a centerpiece, a wedding bouquet, a spring party, a gift to a friend (or even Mother’s Day!). I am dreaming up some large paper flowers and cannot wait to share with you all (if my dream is actually workable!)…
