Note: Sooooo, I wrote this post back before my daughter’s wedding and it’s been sitting here in my drafts all that time. I guess things were just a little crazy back then with all the wedding prep.
I’m in full wedding mode at the moment so I thought I’d share these adorable little flower party horns. We will be using these (shhh, it’s a surprise) to welcome the new couple in place of rice/birdseed/etc. Since the wedding is being done in a floral theme, these are perfect!
Materials needed: crepe paper (you can use the packages of large sheets of crepe paper but crepe paper streamers will work and I found them much less expensive), white glue, party horns (the ones we found have metallic fringe that we cut away so they didn’t interfere with the flowers we were making), scissors.
Now, it’s as simple as cutting and gluing. Cut out petal shapes from the colours you’ve chosen (purple and yellow for us). I didn’t use a template. I simply free-handed the petals and I think it added charm to the project to have them vary a bit. I found it took 3-5 petals per horn depending on size. Glue them around the horn so that they overlap slightly. Using the green crepe paper, cut a small strip and fringe it along one edge. Glue this around the horn so that it covers the base of the flower somewhat. I only apply the glue to the “unfringed” edge so that the fringed part can flutter around a little as you use the horn. It only takes a couple minutes to make each one and I was able to complete 65 of them in one evening!
Let the horns dry and you’re all set to celebrate!
