What’s better than a flower-filled Spring? (Even if they’re paper flowers!). We love real flowers, but sometimes it’s nice to get crafty and create some paper flowers that won’t wilt. Now you can celebrate Spring with this Tulip centerpiece!
Read below for the full tutorial for this Spring centerpiece with Tulips. It will definitely be the highlight of your Spring dinner parties!
DIY Spring centerpiece with Tulips
- crepe paper (double-sided works so well!)
- wire cutters
- wire (I used 22 gauge)
- different shades of spray paint (this is where the magic comes in!)
- basket (I got my moss-covered one from here)
- wood wool (or any of these other floral foam alternatives!)
- moss to fill in
- glue gun
- Cut out petals following the instructions from this post. Here you will want to enlarge them so they are not mini. I varied each flower by using anywhere between 3 and 5 petals per flower.
- After you’ve made as many flowers as you intend to use, go outside and spray the base of each flower with a coordinating spray paint. I chose colors that mimic the paper I used so that they are in the same tones. Make sure you spray from far away so that it gets just a bit of paint on it.
- Add wood wool into your basket.
- One by one, add in your flowers starting with the biggest flowers.
- Cut out leaves and add those to the stems of the flowers. I like the add them at this point so I can see where I want to place them.
- After they are all added in, add moss on top of the wood wool to cover.
Donzo! You now have a Spring centerpiece with Tulips to bring joy to your table for many months!
Gleee! I’m so stoked about my new paper flowers. I rarely keep my creations but this time I’m doing it!
