I am super excited to share a beautiful alternative to fresh flowers.
I loveee them! These faux marigolds look gorgeous and almost real..;-) They are made of colored tissue papers.
Paper flower decorations are the most cheapest and easiest for any occasion. They look like real ones and will surely come handy for multiple events.
Well, to make these pretty Marigolds you need:
Tissue paper – dollar store ($1) or Walmart (97c)
Paper plates – Green (optional) for Leaves
Circular lid (trace circles)
Step 1: Take 3-4 tissues or depending on how dense you want the flower to be and trace circles.
Step 2: Cut the circles, make sure to hold all the layers of the tissue. You can use paper clips to hold them together.
Step 3: Keep the circles together and staple in the center.
Step 4: Start making petals – separate the top most circle of the bunch and crumple it upward from the center.
Step 5 : Repeat with each circle and keep gathering the crumpled circles upward.
Step 6: Once you are done gathering them, open the layers gently to give a more fuller and realistic look.
And that’s it, you have beautiful flowers ready to decorate the way you wish .
The options are endless 🙂
You can make centerpieces, garlands, door decorations for Indian festivals, stick them on wall with painters tape or even lay them on floor with some candles.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial ❤
