Wash and dry some nice thick green leaves. If you have floral spray give them a nice shine. Make sure they are dry before you start working.
Twist colored pipe cleaners to the right head size.
Cut crepe paper 3 inch width
Run some glue down one side. The crepe paper strip should Br around 2 feet long
Make the flowers by pleating and turning the paper. Build a little stem on the bottom where the glue is.
I prepared 6 flowers. Let the glue dry . Form the flowers by stretching out the paper.
Heat up the glue gun. Prepare sets of three leaves in each set. Try to keep the leaves all the same size
Glue the leaves together. Don't worry about the ends you can snip them later.
Add a nice size drop of glue on the bottom of the flower Watch you fingers the glue is hot!
Press down through the middle of the flower
Let the glue cool. Then trim the ends.
Now glue the flowers to the pipe cleaners. Keep the leaves in the same direction (I like it on the side )
Keep it in the fridge (keeps 2 or 3 days)
And there you have it! Beautiful !
