I get a lot of questions about a wire flower a that I have going around my front door. The flowers I have i purchased from Hobby Lobby a while back and I didn’t seem to see them in there any more. I knew there had to be a quick and easy way to create a wire flower. You can purchase a wire whisk which can be spread apart to create the look of a flower. This is so easy to do that I know you will all want to give it a try.
The supplies you will need are:
1. Wire whisk
2. Hot glue
4. Paper or material
5. Marker or pen
I purchased my wire whisks from Walmart. You will want to cut the small metal ring at the base of the whisk. You will need to cut this so that you can spread the whisk apart.
Once the small metal ring is cut into pieces you will start to spread the whisk apart.
Once you have it all spread apart you will have the shape of a flower with 5 petals.
I am making a few flowers with lace and a few with card stock paper. You will want to trace the wire petals onto your material or paper.
You will then cut your petals out. I traced my petals about a half inch larger to be sure it will cover the wire.
I added glue to the wire petal and then placed my lace fabric on top.
I added more hot glue to the back and folded my edges over.
I did this to all 5 petals. I cut a circle out of burlap for the center of my flower.
I did the same process for my paper petals except I did not fold them over on the edges.
I cut my petals out of a printed card stock paper. I glued them onto the metal petals. I did not fold the edges over I just left them as.
These are very easy to make and I love how you can get creative with them. You can use paper or fabric for the petals.
I’m very excited to add a few of these to my trees. You can use these any where throughout your home.
I had fun making a variety of prints!
I hope you will all get creative and give these a try!
