If you are preparing to attend the wedding ceremony of your friend or relative and you are looking to have a perfect wedding flower bouquet then why don`t you go for a DIY paper flowers bouquet which is long lasting, inexpensive as well as pretty. To make a full bouquet you require at least 12 flowers made of paper. It will further depend upon the size and fullness of their blooms. To execute this project on your own, you will require following material.
- Crepe Paper
- Green floral tape
- Green floral wire
- Wired floral leaves (you can get these from craft stores)
- Wire cutters
First of all you need to cut many teardrop shapes from the crepe paper. You can do this quickly and easily if you start doing it straight from the roll.
The second step is to prepare the wire. For this you should cut small square from crepe paper and fold it from the half to make a triangle. Now wrap the triangle around the floral wire tip. Use double sided tape to secure the paper and cover the complete wire with this folded triangle.
Add Petals and Flowers
To make a beautiful DIY paper flower bouquet you should keep on adding the petals and flowers until you think that you have reached the desired number of blooms for your bouquet.
Wired leaves should be twisted onto flower stem. Now gather all the stems in a bouquet shape and cover this with floral tape. Use wire cutter to trim the floral wire ends.
To cover the floral tape, you can wrap the ribbon on the bouquet stems. With this your DIY paper flower bouquet is ready and you can present it to the bride.
