These lovely little diy crepe paper flowers are a sweet way to dress up any Mother’s Day gathering–from a simple breakfast in bed to an elaborate brunch. Or have your kids give grandma a special corsage that won’t wilt throughout the day. These flowers can be made in any color of crepe paper streamers.
You will need: crepe paper streamers (in the colors of your choice), floral wire, floral tape
Directions: Start by taking the end of the crepe paper streamer. Twist the crepe paper around the end, slightly gathering it as you go. If, at first, you don’t like how it looks you can always start over. Play around with it until you’ve got just the fullness you like. Keep on gathering until your flower is the size you want. You can make a variety of sizes (like I did) to have a more natural look. Cut the end of the crepe paper. Fold the top corner of the end down to the bottom of the flower to create a triangle at the end of the flower. Roll the triangle at the bottom of the flower to complete your flower. Wrap the end with floral tape. Tape the flower onto a piece of floral wire.
Make a whole bouquet with different sizes and a variety of colors. Tie them up with a small piece of ribbon and place into a vintage style milk bottle. This makes a gorgeous kid-friendly centerpiece.
