a giant wall flower is my fave (guest post from alli)

May 31, 2012

I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from the always delightful Alli of Hooray

With the abundance of paper flower tutorials out there, I’d be surprised if we’re not all making these in our sleep. For awhile I’ve had a few simple tissue poms up on one wall of our living room, but after seeing these over-sized crepe paper flowers, I figured it was time for an upgrade.

Though the instructions call for fancy crepe paper, I just used the cheap kind I had on hand from the local craft store. I made about 14 heart shaped petals from pink, and 5 or 6 teardrop petals from cream (for a nice layered look).

Because the petals are so large and the paper not very sturdy, my finished flower is a bit floppy, but perfect for casually hanging on a wall. To hang, I bent the wire stem into a circle and suspended it from a thumbtack in the wall. And voila! A pretty addition to our room and just in time for spring.

    Beautiful! I love the idea of a giant wall flower. I’ve been looking for some sort of textural art installation to do in my closet, I think this may be the one.

    Tutorial not very clear. How do you arrange the petals to form the flower?? And how do you make the stem??
