Hibiscus or shoe flowers always add a kind of charming beauty to our garden. It can definitely add beauty to your living room too… We gonna make artificial hibiscus flowers using crepe paper. This craft is especially for those people who love shoe flowers but don't have enough space to plant it.
 

TISSUE PAPER HIBISCUS
Things you need are :
Making
» Crepe papers in red, yellow and green colour
» Scissors
» Glue
» Aluminium wire
» Thread and green tape

MOLDING

Draw an outline of the petal in the red crepe paper and cut out the shape. Don't forget to fold the paper before you draw, so that you will get two equal sized petal shapes. For each petal we need two equal sized pieces. Now cut a small piece of aluminium wire. Cut a small strip of red crepe paper. Apply some glue n the tip of it wrap it around the aluminium wire.

MOLDING

Take the petal shape and apply some glue on the back of the petal shape. Now carefully place the red crepe paper covered aluminium wire, on the petal and cover it with the other petal. In the similar way make more petals. Using handkerchief method, make folds on the petals.

MOLDING

Now we gonna make the central part. Cut a small strip of red paper and fold it. Using a scissor cut the edges. Carefully unfold it and wind it at the tip of the paper-coated wire.

MOLDING

Again cut a small strip of yellow paper, fold it and cut the edges just as we did before. Unfold and wrap it just beneath the red paper.

MOLDING

Now the central part or stamen is ready.

MOLDING

Now attach each petal one by one to the central part or stamen. Secure each petal using a thread. Once again tighten them with aluminium wire and keep the rest of the wire to make the stem.

MOLDING

Cover the stem part using a green tape.

MOLDING

To make the leaf, take the green paper and draw a leaf shape and cut it. You can make several leaf shapes at once by folding over the sheet of green paper and cutting out a few leaf shapes simultaneously. Now cut a small piece of aluminium wire and wrap it with green paper. Take one of the leaf shapes and apply some glue on the back of it.

MOLDING

Place the paper-covered wire on it, cover with the other leaf shape as we did for the petals.

Give it a realistic look by making creases using handkerchief method. Now attach it to the stem of the flower. Reshape the petals or leaves if necessary. Compare it with the real hibiscus flower. No one can identify the paper hibiscus at a glance.
