green crepe paper for leaves
any color of crepe paper for the petals
one yarn pom pom for center of flower
Fold petal colored crepe paper in half at one end. Crepe paper is directional so make sure you are folding with the vertical grain of the paper.
Cut petals in an arch shape with a taped bottom. Use decorative scissors. This will create a pretty edge to your petals. Repeat this 3-4 times
Unfold each petal and gently pull and curl the crepe paper so the creases become smooth. This creates a lightweight natural look to the paper.
Repeat this pulling and curling method on each petal.
Next take your floral wire with the pom pom on it and floral tape and start wrapping the petal around the floral wire. Secure each petal with floral tape.
Once you get the petals attached to the wire, switch to the leaves and cut two leaf shaped leaves.
Wrap the leaves around the stem of the petals on different sides of the petals.
When you are all finished attaching leaves scrunch the petals with you hands to give the flower a natural look.
