This is a great way to make a bright, cheery addition to any space! They end up looking so real .... I even tricked my boyfriend. hehe
First, you will need thick paper. I received this paper in the mail about a year ago, and have been dying to use it! It was perfect for this project because you can mold it once you add water. You could also use card stock or fabric (if you harden it).
Next, use a flower paper punch to cut lots and lots of flower shapes.
Use a watercolor paint of your choice to cover the front and back of all the individual flowers. They don't need to be perfect, will look more real if imperfect.
Use a concave object to lay the flowers on to dry and retain the shape.
Use a hot glue gun to just put a little drop of glue on the back of each flower.
Hold the cut floral wire on the glue dot until it dries.
Here are 4 bundles I finished. They are placed in a painted coffee can I use as a vase. I am working on making 1 more because I have an obsession with things being in odd numbers.
Told you it was tedious! This project took me a few hours, but I loved every minute of it! With good music playing, time will fly.
