How to Make Wire Frame Flowers
Create these beautiful wire frame flowers as a stylish decoration or a special gift. With just a few simple items, you can create these works of art. The nice thing about these abstract flowers is they do not have to be perfect…they actually look better if all of the petals are not the same shape and size. I showed how to make these on my Mother’s Day TV segment on NBC affiliate WBAL.

How to make Wire Frame Flowers
Bend the wire to create petals. Twist the center of the petal before creating the next one.
Twist thin wire around the center of the flower to secure, keeping a long piece of the wire for tails.
Add white glue to the rim of the wire flower frame.
Cut pieces of tissue paper and attach it the flower, covering each petal.
Paint a small amount of gold paint onto the inside of the flower near the center for a nice dimensional glow. Glue beads to the center of the flower.
Attach the wire tails of the flower to a flower stem, secure with hot glue.
Tape off sections of glass vases and paint gold (I got these at the dollar store). Let dry.
Remove tape from the vase and display your beautiful flowers! Send me a picture if you make these. I would love to see them!
