How to Make Crepe- Paper Flowers. Cut 1. 8- gauge cloth- wrapped floral wire to desired length: 1. Clockwise from top left: Button: Cut 1. Place thumbnail- size wad of cotton in center; push end of wire into cotton.
Wrap paper around cotton; twist ends around wire. Secure with floral tape. Bring far tips in toward center bottom point, slightly overlapping. Hold the tips together; twist. Secure tips to end of wire with floral tape. Twist it tightly between your fingers, and tie a knot at one end.
Cut three 1/8- by- 4- inch strips of heavy red crepe paper; bend each at one end. Attach all strips, off- white in center, to end of wire with floral tape. Wrap around end of wire.
Secure with floral tape. Triple Button: Cut three 1- inch squares of crepe paper; make three wads of cotton the size of a pinky nail. Attach to wire as for #1. Place buttons together, heads staggered; tape together with floral tape. Fringe: Cut a 6- by- 2- inch piece of crepe paper. Make cuts into one long side, about every 1/8 inch, to create a fringe. Roll paper tightly around end of wire.
Secure with floral tape.
Thank you so much for the idea. I have just completed my first rose using basic printing paper. I plan on using a large foam wreath mold to make my paper rose wreath.
