There is nothing more stunning than walking into a room filled with beautiful flowers. The perfect arrangement and colours can truly add character to a room. It’s a certainty that flowers rarely live for long, even with proper care. However, you can have your flowers live forever by getting gorgeous origami flowers! Even though origami flowers are made from coloured pieces of paper, they are very realistic in appearance. You might not get the smell from them that you would get from a live flower, but you will definitely get the great amazing look that real flowers have. Foam is used to hold these artificial flowers together in bunches or bouquets, so you never have to worry about any of them falling out of place. If you can’t live without the pleasant smells that emit from real flowers, then you could simply buy a small vial of potpourri oil to apply to your origami flowers. Since you will just be spritzing the flowers with the potpourri solution, it won’t damage the paper in any way.
Making Origami Flowers Yourself
At Master Oh we know a thing or two about making origami flowers! There are several options available when designing your own origami bouquet. You can either have the flowers made, or you can try to do it yourself. There are plenty of books and articles available on how to make these wonderful looking artificial flowers. By making them yourself, you have complete freedom over the types of flowers that will be used in the bouquet. Whether you want roses, carnations, daffodils, or any other type of flower, you can make them easily with origami. If you buy your origami flowers at an arts and crafts store, then all you need to arrange them is some pliers, wire, and floral tape. By simply binding the wire to the flowers and using the pliers to cut, you can arrange your own bouquet and re-arrange it as many times as you want. You can place it in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, and the colour will never fade.
Choosing Colours for Your Origami Flowers
If brightly coloured flowers are not your cup of tea, then you may opt for a more natural look, by buying crème or white paper to make your origami flowers. Whether you are making flowers for your home, or for gifts, you will want them to look fantastic. The best part about them is that you never have to worry about watering them! They will look beautiful eternally.
