When done well, crepe paper flowers are so beautiful. You can make them yourself with tutorials like Martha Stewart's, or you can buy them from some great artists like The House That Lars Built or Adorn Flowers. It goes without saying that one of these flowers' best qualities is that they never perish, and because of that, I like the idea of displaying them in a creative but ultra simple way that lets the art of the flower itself really shine. Because in this case I let the paper artists do the work, I'm filing the super simple mounting of these beauties under "semi-DIY." Read on for more pics and details.
To create a little display like mine, mount one crepe paper stem diagonally on an unfinished wooden mini plaque, affixing with a few beads of hot glue on the front and back. For mine, I used a stem of cherry blossoms, a stem of dogwood, and a rose -- all by Nazrin of Adorn Flowers. Lean them on a shelf or desk, or attach a picture hanger to put them on your wall.
This little trio adds a touch of life and femininity. I could see them looking so great in a gallery display or some beautifully-styled shelves. It just goes to show that innovative art can be easy!
