Here, are the essentials to make your crepe paper daffodils… the top dark yellow square is twisted to form the center stem, the center leaves are cut with a wavy pattern and the external leaves are more pointed. Each layer is glued with the Zip Dry paper glue below. Wrap the flower base and leaf with florist tape and attach to floral wire.
What would you do if you volunteered to make 36 table centerpieces
for a charitable event with virtually no money for decorating?
Call my friend and graphic designer, Susie! Remember her from this post?
honoring our public high school’s students’ mentors. Budget = zero. Sound familiar?
She made beautiful paper daffodils in “milk glass” vases.
Her husband, Bob, said they were “multiplying and
taking over every surface in their home!”
Susie raided her closet and all the local thrift shops for clear inexpensive florist vases
that she manually swirled with white paint (not a brush) inside to resemble milk glass.
Then she let them dry over night.
Lovely finished product. I think they would also be cute decorating gift packages.
