Last night I spent the loveliest of time learning all about how to make crepe flowers with Brittany Watson of the blog The House that Lars Built. I've been following her gorgeous blooms on etsy and most recently her Kentucky Derby flower hat win on the Today Show! I had never worked with crepe paper and now I'm hooked! It's quiet easy to mold and you can make all sorts of lovely crafts with it. But really, I was blown away by the giant paper flowers she and her mother made for her wedding whoa. She is truly an inspirational gal!
"My mom’s favorite quote was “a creative mess is better than tidy idleness” and so my childhood was spent creating art work, music, and yes, lots of messes." -LOVE!
What a sweet little spring craft to make with lovely friends or make a giant bouquet of these and give to mom for Mother's day! Check out more of Brittany's DIY's on her blog. And if you are looking for a how-to book, Paper to Petal looks amazing.
