for the crepe paper ranunculus is used green yellow and two shades of pink,
i also used a kebab skewer and some glue.
first roll up a ball of the green crepe paper then cut a square and cover in glue and push the skewer into the ball and use the square to cover the ball and attach it to the skewer.
then cut a strip and fold in half and wrap around the ball, then take some yellow crepe paper and cut another strip and wrap it around again, then fold the crepe paper so you can cut multiple petals at the same time, and cut a small petal shape. this saves time as you will get loads in one go of the same size. then start gluing them around layering them ontop of each other, leaving a small gap between each one, then do the same with the paler pink crepe paper, cut it in two larger sizes than the yellow. take another kebab stick and use it to roll the edges of the crepe paper in towards the centre.
now take the darker pink crepe paper, and fold it again so you can cut multiple petals in the same shape and size. and cut larger petals take 3 petals and fan them out then fan the bottom edge and glue on to the back, this adds shape. then once they are all on cut some more to make the underneath look neat, then take the skewer again, and roll any petals in that need it.
for this you need netting or silk fabric, i used pink fine net material,
you will also need a candle
some fabric in green and yellow for the middle (i just painted some white fabric with water colour paints)
i cut lots of circles in different sizes, the i held them above the candle this curls the edges in, don't hold it to close or it will burn the fabric or turn it black. once that's done roll up the green fabric in a spiral, and glue it, then rap the yellow strip around it, (fold the fabric in half so the rough edges are at the back)
then take the smallest petals and start gluing them around. the centre piece and keep adding them, then with the two larges end petals, i used some bright pink water colour paint and tinted them darker, then put them at the back one overlapping each side.
