Watercolor Paper Flowers

Hello all! Today I will show you how to make watercolor paper flowers :)


You will need:
- Watercolor paint
- Watercolor paper, or Oslo paper
- Scissors
- Hot glue

Just paint the paper with watercolor. I mixed three colors for this one. The more water you use, the more it will blend. And then let it dry for about 30 minutes.

Cut out different sizes of petals with your watercolor paper, ranging from 1 to 3 inches. Slightly curl the sides of the petals with a pencil.

Starting with the smallest petal, Apply hot glue at the bottom of the petal and pinch it. Add a new petal over the previous one, layer by layer.

When you're satisfied with the size, you can stop adding petals. If you want, you can experiment with different petal shapes.
  
Then cut out leaves to complete the look. It will definitely look nicer if there are 2 or 3 more colors for the flowers. You can use these flowers as a nice table centerpiece for a party! And by the way, these will never wilt.

Happy crafting!
