10 minutes- a couple hours waiting time while drying- 10 minutesMaterials needed for one flower:
3'9" white florist wire (thin wire wrapped with paper) - about 9 inches for one petal
a tiny scrap of fabric - about 6 square inches
fabric glue - I used original tacky glue
white stem wrap tape- optional but will look nicerTools:
some plastic to let your flower dry on it
Cut 5 pieces of 9" wire. Bend in half.
Wrap the middle around two fingers or around a round tube, the 2 fl oz bottle of glue works just fine.
Remove by sliding off. This is what you get.
Shape it like an oval with slightly pointy ends to create the plumeria petals. Keep the shape flat. Make 5 shapes, one for each petal. You could make any shape and flower that way.
Check the shapes are flat and touch the fabric all around the edge. A tiny space between fabric and wire is OK if you fill it with glue.
Apply fabric glue all around the edge. No need to be very neat, the glue will dry clear.
Leave it to dry completely. This might take a couple hours, depending on your weather.
Once dry, cut the fabric around the shape, thus creating a petal.
Bend the petals slightly.
Put the five petals together, overlapping a little. Twist all the wires together or just one around the others, this will create the stem. Arrange the petals evenly to create the flower.
Wrap stem wire tape around the stem.
Now, you can put it behind your ear and go dance the hula or just enjoy a tropical drink.
