Festive, budget friendly and simple to make are how I'd describe these newsprint paper flowers that I whipped up the other day as last minute centerpieces. And since newsprint is used rather than tissue paper or crepe paper, the bottom layers of the flower retain their petal shapes and make a nice sturdy base, enabling one to simply attach the flower to a plate or pedestal of any kind.
- newsprint paper
- crepe paper (the least expensive and flimsiest is what I used)
- masking tape (or packing tape)
- sharp scissors
