Be it a garden party or a wedding, there's no wrong occasion for a gorgeous bouquet of vibrant peonies — especially when that bouquet will last and last for years to come.
For this DIY, you're going to need crepe paper, floral wire, floral tape, scissors, a glue gun, and glue sticks.
*Create the Pieces
Use simple techniques like cutting, painting, fringing, and folding crepe paper to create the stamen, petals, and buds. To save time, fold crepe paper to cut out several pieces at once!"
*Assemble the Flowers
Assemble the pieces using hot glue and watch your paper come to life. It's best to work in stages. Attach your stamens, move on to the petals, and then the stems. For big bouquets with more than 25 flowers, grab some friends, wine, and turn on some Netflix.
*Arrange the Stems
When it's time to bring the flowers together in a bouquet, secure the wire stems together with a rubber band and then trim them to your preferred length.
*Add Preserved Greenery
For a truly dazzling look and pleasant smell, add preserved greenery within and around the bouquet. Secure the loose stems with a rubber band and trim.
From here on out, your bouquet is completely low-maintenance. There's no wilting or watering to worry about! You can create paper flowers weeks before your wedding, and they will still be rocking it for your big day. Simply store in a cool, dry place and away from the sun to preserve that beautiful color.
