Don't be shy to share how you used this beautiful decor at your event, would love to hear some new ways to do it! Thanks and enjoy!
1. Cut crepe paper into strips of 9" long x 3/4" wide or so.
2. Take one strip and start rolling the end. Roll about 3 times or so to get a good start on it and make sure it's not going to roll back apart. Then hold it with your left hand. With your right hand, grab the long end and twist the paper around one half turn. **This will create the petal look.** Then continue to roll it up. Twist over again creating a fold each time. Roll. Twist. Roll. Twist. Continue until you get to the end of the strip.
3. When you come to the end of the roll, very carefully put a dab of hot glue on the end to hold the end and secure it closed. You should have created something like this:
4. Then...when you get a bunch of these made, you will hot glue them onto a styrofoam ball (any size). The hot glue likes to seep down into the pores of the styrofoam, so it's easier to glue the roses together on each side with hot glue. Be VERY careful. It's very easy to burn yourself while doing this. The glue is difficult to see against the white styrofoam.
