This Vellum Flower Spring Centerpiece project was originally shared on the Core’Dinations blog. For this project, I was challenged to use vellum. I’ll admit, it was quite a challenge for me. To me, vellum seems to be out of date. I struggled with how I was going to use it. BUT, in the end, this is one of my very most favorite projects! Once I figured out what I was going to do with that vellum, I was so excited. And once I got this project finished, it turned out better than I had imagined! Anyway, today I’m going to show you how I put this together. It really is simple.
You’ll need the following supplies:
- Variety of coloful vellum
- Paper straws (I got mine from Pick Your Plum, they have them today, 50 for $.75)
- Large brads
- Tin bucket
- Floral foam
- Green shredded paper (I used Easter grass)
- Electronic die cutting machine (I used my Cricut Explore)
Cut out all your vellum flowers.
Layer two of the flowers together, like shown.
Put a brad through the center.
Make sure to push the back of the brads, down tight.
Using one side on the back of the brad, put it into the paper straw.
Do that with each flower.
Put floral foam in the bottom of your bucket.
Push the straws down into the floral foam.
Make sure your flowers are arranged how you’d like them. I trimmed the bottom of the paper straws to make them different heights.
Add your green shredded paper (Easter grass).
Now you have a beautiful spring centerpiece that you can display in your home!
And now I’m thinking that vellum isn’t as out of date as I was thinking it was. 😉
