Hibiscus Centerpieces

Using PCs Cartridge GIANT FLOWERS. I made 6 centerpieces for a Luau. I used Bazzil Premium Cardstock and inked the edges using Cat Eye Chalks. I created loops out of the wire to glue the flowers to the stems and curved the petals and the leaves around a fat pencil. The kind Kindergarteners use.

I cut the floral foam to fit in the glass fishbowl and wrapped in 2 shades of cellophane. The fabulous ribbon is Offray 1 1/2" Shocking Pink/White Hawaiian Flowers.

These are going to look great at the party. There are a total of 30 flowers. 5 in each centerpiece. The large ones are 6 inches across and the smaller ones are 4 inches across.

  1. Oh, these are stunning!! The really look terrific. Were they really hard to do?? I was thinking of trying something like this for my sister's bridal shower with the peony but didn't know if I'd be able to pull it off......

    1. Oh yes you can do it. I made loops with the top of the floral wire to stabilize the flower. It would be really pretty with the peony.
