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!
And if you make your own flowers, post it to Instagram and tag it with #larsflowers I want to see them!
