Make a spring centerpiece with tulips

Materials:
  • 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)
  • floral foam for non-real flowers
  • moss to fill in
  • glue gun
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: 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.

Step 3: Add floral foam into your basket.
Step 4: One by one, add in your flowers starting with the biggest flowers.
Step 5: 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.
Step 6: After they are all added in, add moss on top of the floral foam to cover.

Donzo!

Gleee! I’m so stoked about my new 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!
