Back in July, I designed a new frosted paper anemone. For this new design, I used painting pastels to enhance the look of my classic black and white anemone. Although I listed the steps for how to make this anemone, I thought it would be helpful for you to have a video tutorial too. Today I’m finally sharing the video tutorial as well as a new idea for how to use the black and white anemone flowers you make in another DIY project.
These black and white anemone flowers may look detailed, but they’re so easy to make! You can watch the video tutorial below to see how I use my paper curling tool (and my fingers) to make the petals, centers, and leaves look more realistic and natural. You’ll also see how I use PanPastel painting pastels along with a paintbrush and sponge to color my paper flowers.
Last time I made these anemones, I added stems, which you’ll see in the video. But for this DIY project, I added my flowers to a wreath. All of the greenery that’s in this wreath can be found in this bouquet. Once you’ve cut your leaves, glue them to your hoop. You can look at our pictures for guidance or arrange them your own way. Usually, we use gold hoops for our wreaths, but this time we used a wood hoop. When you’re finished with the leaves, adding your anemone flowers will be the last step.
To make your anemone flowers, gather the tools and materials below. Then watch the video to see how it’s done! If you have any questions, let me know.
