DIY Paper Allium Flowers

Materials-

  1. Allium template
  2. Tacky Glue
  3. Fine crepe in “French Violet”
  4. Heavy crepe in “Eggplant” and fine crepe in “Olive Green”
  5. 18 inch lengths of 18 and 20 gauge stem wire
  6. Paper scissors
  7. Wire snips
  8. Small awl
  9. Optional: millinery stamens that coordinate with your paper colour
  10. One 1.5” polystyrene ball
  11. One 18″ length of vinyl tubing 3/8” outer diameter, ¼” inner diameter. (Home Depot and Lowe’s both carry it in the plumbing department)

Directions

For the stem:

Cut a 15” length of tubing at a very sharp angle. This pointy end will be the top of your stem, and you’ll insert the point into the polystyrene ball to help anchor the stem. Cut three of the 18 gauge wires so that they’re 16” long. Insert the wires into the length of tubing to hold your stem fairly straight while you wrap it.

Additionally, frames can be cumbersome to move and ones that aren’t from the dollar store can be quite costly.
