I love how fresh and pretty these blooms look on my mantel. They are really easy to make too using crepe paper, floral wire and tacky glue. Watch the video to see how:

For this tutorial you will need:
Crepe paperĀ 
Tacky glue
Floral wire
Wire Cutters
Scissors

Directions:
1. Cut crepe paper as shown in the video. Pay attention to what way the striation in the paper is going with you cut so you can stretch and shape the paper as needed.

2. Cut a 12″ piece of floral wire and fold in half. Secure a tapered strip of crepe paper to the folded end and roll up to make the center.

3. Attach shaped flower petals to the wire under the center.

4. Twist the wire ends together and wrap the wire with a strip of green crepe paper. Glue crepe paper leaves to the stem.

Tip: Vary the shape and size of the petals and leaves to make any flower you want!
