About this deal

Bend and shape the flower and stamens. Carefully drop green marbling ink into the centre base of each flower and a tiny drop either side; don’t overdo this as the ink and the oil within it travels up and down the paper. Make two smaller lilies in the same way, this time using template B and cutting five petals only.

See what else you can make for the fall and holiday season. Or find more DIY wreathsyou can make for your home. Isn’t it surprisingly easy to make an accordion garland?! It takes some patience adding each layer, but now that I know how to make one, I want to try a couple more in some interesting shapes.Even though these three simple projects aren’t quite spooky, they definitely are festive! Decorating gets crazy this time of year when you have to jump from Halloween to Thanksgiving and then Christmas, so I try to keep it simple. I’ll probably put away the accordion bats in November, but the pumpkins and dried Chinese lantern branches can definitely stay out. I love how it kind of looks like a real dried Chinese Lantern branch. If you don’t have foam balls lying around, just roll up a little ball of tissue paper for the inside. Cut a rectangle of 180g orange crepe paper across the grain measuring 13 x 5cm (5 x 2in). Stretch fully between your fingers and cut out two pieces from the stamen template. Repeat again with the 180g yellow crepe paper and cut out one piece using the same template. Cut detail into all the small petals and five of the large petals (including the accent-colour petal) following the dotted guidelines on the templates. Round off any straight cut edges that you make with precision scissors. To make the stamens, snip five 9cm lengths of wire. Trim small rectangles of orange crepe paper. Place the tip of the wire in the centre, fold the rectangle in half, then roll. Pinch the base of the paper, then wrap and wind the pinched area and hold down the wire with tape, forming one stamen. Make four more in the same way. Hold the five stamens together and wind tape around the base ends, connecting them together.

Lay the three pieces down with the yellow piece in the centre and apply small dots of glue along the bottom uncut pieces to lightly secure the three pieces together. Twist the strands firmly together with your fingers to make the fringing even finer.Pinch the base of the petal together, then wind over the pinched area and down the wire with tape. Repeat to make up six petals. Bend the wire within the petal into a curve and up again towards the point. Stretch out the centre slightly, then repeat on the edges near to the point of the petal to create a fluted effect. When the components are in place, push the inner hoop into the outer part. To have the flowers appear off-centre, twist the outer hoop until the screw part of the hoop is sitting at the top of the wreath. Tighten the screw to hold the flowers and leaves more firmly, then bend and adjust them to your liking. Make a double bow from hessian ribbon and fix it to the hoop with fine gauge wire. Tie a bow with a length of orange cord through the screw, then knot on a hanging loop. Candle ring
