If you caught my Pier 1 event recap posted yesterday, you probably noticed that we used TONS of paper flowers throughout the decor – especially this lovely whimsical version! We did an in-person demo of these flowers at the event, and I’m excited to share the tutorial with you today too – because I think you’re going to love how easy it is to whip them out!
I found the instructions for this style of flower by Jeffery Rudell right here, and it’s definitely helpful to check out the visual diagram in he created. I changed things up slightly by swapping out the floral tape “pistils” he created with decorative rhinestone and bead centers instead.
And for the sake of time, I also omitted the floral tape suggested for the underside of the flower (which helps to keep the flowers in place at the top of the stem) and just used a tiny dab of hot glue to help secure them. You can certainly do it either way – I just had to bust out a bunch of these at once, so time was of the essence! ;) (more…)
