I love making Halloween decorations! How fun are these Spooky Sunflowers?!? I would love to show you how I made these flowers...so let's get started!!
- Cardstock Warehouse Papers:
- Pitch Black Lessebo Colours 83lb
- Sunflower Lessebo Colours 83lb
- Purple Haze Lessebo Colours 83lb
- Hot Glue & Glue Gun
- Die Cutting Machine (Cricut or similar)
- Wooden Dowel
- Cut file from FloralFlairStudio on Etsy (For the flowers and webs)
- Spider die cut file (I found mine on Cricut, but you can use any spider file)
Start by cutting all the pieces out. There are 3 different sizes of sunflowers and spiders and 3 different styles of spiderwebs. You will need 3 of each of the same size flower, 10 to 15 yellow pieces for making the center of the flower, and however many spiders and webs you would like.
Next, assemble the sunflower. Take the dowel rod and place it in the center of the flower petal and pinch the sides around it…do this with all the petals. You could also use a curved bone folder.
Glue the 3 layers of flowers together by offsetting each layer from the previous layer.
Next, take 10 to 15 of the yellow pieces and fold them in half on the long side.
Start rolling the yellow pieces and gluing the next piece to the end of the roll.
Keep adding until your center piece is the size you would like it, then glue it to the center of the petals.
Now you are ready to start decorating! Add your spiders to the flowers with hot glue. Finally, attach your flowers to your wall or the center of a table and add the spider webs around the edges.
