A Bit of Paint
With your watercolor paint, coat each paper petal, allowing the color to fade from one side to the other. Try to give it an ombre type look. Set the paper petals out to dry. The next step is to make a stem by cutting a piece of the floral tape. Then, form a small tear toward the end of each paper petal. Slide the wire up through the tear and attach the petals with hot glue. Stagger the petals as you glue, continuing to add them until you’ve made a flower. To connect the flower to the stem, wrap the bottom section with floral tape.
