We have been having so much fun coming up with new DIY versions of our favorite tropical flowers. Some of you told us recently that your favorite tropical flower is the hibiscus. So today we are sharing a new frosted paper hibiscus flower that our designer Meagan crafted.
Our photo tutorial below will walk you through the steps to making this pretty flower using white frosted paper and red PanPastel. For a fuller arrangement, we made two other paper hibiscus flowers and added a mix of paper greenery.
To give our DIY flower arrangement some more depth and texture, our designer Meagan made one paper hibiscus flower in white, one in orange, and one in coral. She then added more detail by coloring each flower with red PanPastel. If you haven’t used PanPastel before, our photo tutorial will come in handy! Or you can watch our video on how to color your flowers with PanPastel.
Along with using different colors of paper for each hibiscus flower, she added some paper greenery (which you can find in our tropical wreath) to round out her flower arrangement. She also mixed in a lighter green to brighten up the arrangement a bit. There are many ways to get creative here — not only with the colors you use for your paper hibiscus flower and greenery but with how you style it. And that includes the vase you use!
For more tropical fun, check out our recent frosted paper plumeria. We’ve also come out with some new seasonal decor that you can use for your home or for a summer gathering. Of course you can browse through all of our summer projects for new DIY ideas as well. Enjoy! ~ Lia and team
