Spring has always been the time of the year when I do my most crafting, it's a time where life slows down just enough for me to do what I love. So with the really mild winter we've had, I was inspired to get crafting just a little bit early. Although it's not too wintry outside our dining room table looks pretty cold and barren these days.
I love flowers but
1. don't know enough about them to grow them
2. don't have the money to always buy them.
That being said, I've come across this project a few times on different sites, and decided to try it for myself.
So this is what I came up with
The vase was just a spray painted old one I had gotten from a get well soon bouquet.
Here's what you need:
Crepe streamer roll
(your choice of color)
hot glue gun
(and the glue of course)
(that one is super free around here)
Cut your crepe paper
unfortunately for you, I'm terrible at taking measurements
I use the "just eyeball it" method a lot.
But if I had to guess I'd say inch and a half squares.
What ever looks good to you.
Fold over one corner to make a triangle.
Pinch it from the center of the folded side and just kinda gather it.
if it looks something like this
your half way done!
Put a dab of glue wherever you want there to be a blossom
It adds just enough, color and fullness to the table.
Can't wait till Spring!
