What You’ll Need
– Crepe Paper
– Thin Sticks
– Glue Gun
- Step one is to take the crepe paper and cut it into strips, which should then be wrapped and ‘fringed’ using scissors (see image for examples)
- Use a toothpick to wrap the fringes around and create the curled effect. The idea is one that should leave you with a bottom part that hasn’t been changed and a top end with curls.
- Attach the curled paper to a thin stick using the appropriate glue, sticking with either one color or mixing it up.
- Finish off by adding more crepe paper to the ‘stems’ to give them a dash of color, along with a few added paper leaves.
