Crepe Paper Flower Bulbs - part 1

These handmade blooms by David Stark Design are as unexpected as they are elegant—and they’re a cinch to make using basic tools and materials. “Planted” in a pot or vintage vessel, these works of art make a chic centerpiece or a fabulous gift for your bridal party that can be displayed long after your big day is over. 


  • Plastic sandwich bags
  • White sand
  • White floral tape
  • Double-sided crepe paper in the color of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
  • Wire cutters
  • White-wrapped floral wire (preferably 22 gauge)
  • Vessel of your choice


​1. Fill a sandwich bag with about 1/4 cup of sand. Wrap just above the sand with white floral tape.
2. Cut several strips of crepe paper (about 3/4-inch wide)against the grain of the paper. Wrap the “bulb” with the strips, hot gluing where needed. Pull the paper taught as you work.
