Looking through all the gorgeous pictures of the flower displays that we previously posted, in our colour inspiration post, we realised we don't always have the time to keep our house full of fresh flowers.
This post is a great idea for those of you who have allergies to certain flowers, yet love the way they look or if you don't have the time or money to keep them lasting in your home. This is also a fun idea for the crafty readers and to bring a little creativity into your household.
This tutorial expresses your creative side and helps to show your personality through the creations you make!
- Tissue Paper - you can find thin tissue paper at any craft store near you, let your personality show through with your choice of colours, there are lots of different types to choose, from patterned to plain and even shiny paper. I just used pain coloured tissue paper in this tutorial.
- Florist Tape - Florist tape is green tape that is very stretchy. It is usually used for stem wrapping for buttonhole flowers.
- Wire - You can find wire at any craft store, I used green wire to blend in with the stems.
- Scissors - Last but not least scissors sharp enough to cut through the wire.
The size you choose is completely up to you, you can have large or small flowers, but the larger you make them the more layers of tissue paper you will need.
Once again the sizing is up to you, my stems were about 30 cm long which included the allowance to hold the flower. Once you have chosen you size make 6 lengths of the wire. There is no need to cut it, just keep going back on yourself as seen in the picture above. Twist the wires together to keep them in place.
Cushions in picture available here.
