Preparing the Conflower Seed Center
Crafting Realistic Paper Cone Flowers
Now that we have gathered the essential materials, it’s time to prepare the heart of our paper cone flowers – the coneflower seed center. Before we begin crafting, ensure that the harvested coneflower centers are fully dried. This step is vital in achieving a realistic appearance for our fall craft. And. they could become moldy if they’re not fully dried, and we certainly don’t want that to happen!
To create lifelike paper cone flowers, carefully examine the dried coneflower centers you collected earlier. These distinctive cone-shaped centers, with their unique textures and patterns, are the key to capturing the essence of the real flowers. As you assemble our paper cone flowers, the cone-shaped centers will serve as the focal point, adding depth and authenticity to our delightful fall decor.
With the fully dried coneflower centers at hand, we’re ready to start crafting paper coneflowers. Let’s bring the beauty of nature and the charm of autumn into your home as you craft these captivating and realistic floral masterpieces. I love to have a piece of “last season” in our house. It brings back memories of the times in summer when they were in full bloom.
