Martha explains how to make cocktail-glass flowers for embellishing stemware that's sure to be a hit at your next dinner party.
- Cocktail-glass flowers template
- Card stock, in several colors
- Scissors and/or craft knife
- Double-sided tape
- Green plastic raffia
Download the template and print several times on different colors of card stock.
Cut out the cocktail-glass flowers from each piece of card stock. Cut a slit on the dotted line, and cut out the hole in the center of each.
Place the paper flowers around the stem of the glass, overlapping them slightly at the slit, and securing with double-sided tape. Use a small flower on the top and a large flower (of a different color) on the bottom.
To create a green stem, which will hold the paper petals in place, turn the glass over so that the flowers fall against the cup of the glass. Wrap some plastic raffia several times around the stem of the glass, and knot tightly to secure.
