DIY :Flower Bouquet/ Summer Decoration

Hello family!

I hope you are all doing well and having a safe day!

Wow! we are already in July. Just know that :

~~ Every new month is like a fresh piece of paper and only YOU decide what will be written on it.~~

So wishing you a happy new month!!

Today’s post is a fun DIY. I saw it on Stephaniablog ‘s YouTube channel, and I decided to give it a go. I tried to make it as simple as possible and included a lot of pictures just to show you every single step. It is easy. I did it with my sisters so it was much more fun.

When my friend came over, I offered her a flower. She was very happy when she found out the chocolate inside!! Β  πŸ˜‰ Β It also added a summery touch to my room.

If you are ready, let’s start!

You will need:

  • Crepe Paper ( I used the green, brown and yellow; but you can use whatever color you want).
  • Chocolate balls (like Maltesers) or lollipops.
  • scissors.
  • Sellotape.
  • Wooden stick skewers.

1- Cut your brown Crepe paper into rectangular shapes. Since I am making 5 flowers, I will cut 5 ones.

2- Put your chocolate/ lollipop in the middle, and wrap it with the pieces you just cut.

… You will get 5 mini balls.

3- Fold your yellow crepe paper, for about 3 times, then cut it.

4- Now you are left with a long piece. The next step is to cut this piece into 5 equal pieces.

5- For each piece:

  • Open it, completely.
  • Re-fold it, but this time you have to fold it many times; you have to get more folds. Β  Β  Β ~~I folded mine 4 time in step 3 but 6 times in this step.~~
  • Cut the top in triangles.

7- Put the brown ball (chocolate) in the middle.

11-Β Lastly, and with a sellotape, assemble all the parts ( the top of the flower and the wooden stick skewer) by sticking them together.

12- For the final touch: with your fingers, twist the flower leaves to give them a realistic look.
