- Dowel Rod
The process is so simple. Apply your E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips along one edge of the length of crepe you decided to work with. Repeat for each strip of crepe paper you add to the flower.
Now start wrapping the crepe paper around the dowel. Be sure to gather some as you go.
Pinch and gather as you go around the dowel to form the flower. Watch as you wrap. You can see if you need to gather more.
Its as simple as that! This fun flower can be added to a project. Add several to a vase to make a bouquet, or add then to a wreath.
Tip: If you want to add it to a project and don’t need it to have a stem, just use a wire cutter to cut it off. Be sure to leave just enough to hold your flower together.
