So, I was going to make some interesting wreath or other with all those pretty pink crepe paper roses I made not long ago. But then I stemmed them and realized that they were pretty enough as just plain flowers.
and the other in a great mason jar I salvaged when my fiancé finished off his Peach and Pineapple Salsa from Walmart.
See? Aren’t they just too pretty to further mess around with? They always say, less is more….
So obviously I had a new problem. A little crepe paper flower garland would have looked oh-so-lovely! So I hopped on over to Wally World to get some plain white crepe paper, and I started working. I realized there were so many more types of flowers I can make. Why I ever felt confined to roses, I don’t know. Also, because the white is so plain, it gives more freedom in the variety of flowers without making the bunch look too cheesy or over the top.
I want to show you how to make three more types of flowers, but the varieties really are endless, and a lot of times they happen kind of by accident. They are made in the same fashion as the others: cut and roll.
Staple the end to keep it intact.
Now to my original intent. I strung these flowers together with natural twine, double knotting tight to make sure they won’t ever EVER come loose.
