How to Make Foil Flowers


How to Make Foil Flowers. Foil may not seem like the most obvious material for making artificial flowers; however, the reflective material makes for a stand-out decoration. Whether making alternative corsages, party decorations or table centerpieces, a foil flower bouquet may be just the extra touch you are looking for.

Things You'll Need

  • Foil
  • Dull pencil
  • Scissors
  • Medium sized nail
  • Decorations (glitter, glue, ribbon)
  • Spread a piece of foil out on a flat surface, being carefully not to create any unwanted wrinkles. Use a dull pencil to draw your flower shape onto the foil. You can try a variety of sizes and shapes, just makes sure the details are large enough to cut easily without tearing the delicate foil.

  • Draw at least four identical shapes to create your flowers, making each a bit smaller than the last. Carefully cut around your shapes and place them one on top of the other with the largest on the bottom and the smallest on top. When aligned as desired, poke a hole through the center using a medium sized nail.

  • Cut a piece of foil slightly longer than the length of your desired stem. Make the foil about 2 inches wide. Fold your piece of foil over itself twice and then carefully twist to create a firm, tight stem. Feed the stem up through the hole in your flower's petals and then twist a ball into the top to hold it in place.

  • Use the same technique used to create your flower's petals to create leaves for the stem if desired. Further decorate with glue and glitter, ribbon or other craft supplies.
