Flower power through power flowers: These homemade flowers will bring color to your home. An inexpensive and decorative alternative during the flowerless winter season!
Cut stencils from the sturdy paper using the templates. Draw the blossoms on the crepe paper using the stencils and then cut out the shapes. 3 flowers in two different colors, 1 leaf, 1 circle, 1 very narrow strip of yellow crepe and 1 5/8" (1.5-cm) wide strip of green crepe.
Roll the petals to the center using the pencil.
Glue all three flowers together in the middle.
Join four wires. To do so, wind a piece of wire around the other three, leaving 3/8" (1 cm) unwound at the upper end.
Poke a small hole in the center of the flower and thread the wire through it, bending the four single wires 3/8" (1 cm) apart at the top of the flower.
Poke a small hole in the middle of the leaf and place it over the wire from below. Then glue it beneath the flower using the Multi-Purpose Glue.
Make small cuts around the circumference of the circle, leaving 3/8" (1 cm) at the center. Bend the ends slightly upwards. Crumple up the yellow strip tightly and glue it to the center of the circle. Let the crumpled strip dry for a while and then glue it to the center of the flower. Allow it to dry well.
Affix the Double-Sided Tape to the green Strip.
Peel off the backing paper and wrap the strip around the wire from top to bottom. Press firmly. Depending on the desired length of the flower, apply another strip or cut off the wire.
