Imitation or faux flowers are always less of cost and you can have them all through the year and preserve them and use them for multiple decorations. Today’s tutorial is about one such flower.
Marigold is the most commonly used flower in Indian festivals and special occasions as a part of decoration.
|1||Tissue paper-yellow colour (Available in Dollar tree, Daiso, Wallmart)|
|2||Compass with pencil|
For one flower:
Draw 8 circles using a compass of radius 4cm. Another method would be to stack all the sheets and draw the circle on the top sheet. Then cut out all the sheets at once keeping the first circle as a reference.
Now cut all the 8 circles and stack them one above the other. Make sure they are all stacked up neat. Remember the more the number of circles the flower looks big and fuller with more petals. You can always increase the number of circles.
Now staple the center of the stack. Remember to staple all the circles.
Now separate each circle of paper and crumble it creating the petal effect of the marigold. Repeat for all the remaining 7 circles. Crumble all the circles and slowly open it to form a flower
Enjoy your Imitation Marigold flowers.
I basically use them as decorations in festivals.
