Fun, Festive and Merry: How to Make Floral Tapestries and Flower Earrings for the Holidays

Looking to tap into your creative side this season? Decorate for Christmas and the holidays? Flower petal earrings and floral tapestries are the answer. This holiday art project is totally kid friendly and lots of fun for adults as well. It combines home decor, floral fashion and festive, seasonal flowers to make for an enjoyable Christmas Day activity or something you can do together as a family. And here's how

Trendy Christmas Flower Displays

Below are the winter flowers and indoor plants we love, which will make beautiful additions when their leaves and petals are strung as earrings or transformed into a beautiful, twirling floral tapestry:

Poinsettia plants are classic, red and white roses play up traditional Christmas colour schemes, and of course mistletoe and holly berries are the flowers we are accustomed to seeing on Christmas. It is a sign of the season–rightly so!–as these indoor plants and holiday flowers bring many of us back to cherished family memories and the joyous celebrations of years past. Still, there is a modern, trendy and fashionable way for you and your friends to incorporate these familiar blossoms into new, bright displays.

Winter Flowers and Holiday Floral Arrangements

If you want to decorate with flowers on a budget or find cheap Christmas flowers gifts, consider ‘borrowing’ a few blossoms from a larger floral display you happen to already have (or see if a friend won't mind you taking a flower or two, then make a pair of flower earnings or tiny tapestry in return). Of course you can do the same thing if you decide to order flowers online.

How to Make Your Wintry Floral Tapestry and Flower Earrings for Christmas

The supplies you will need are flowers (of course!), the backs from a pair of earrings, headpins, hot glue, string, and a small wire cutter or jewellers pliers (the kid friendly part of this project, by the way, is the choosing and sorting of blossoms and flower petals).

Take your flower heads or individual petals and pierce them with the pin. Then cut the pin so there is about one centimetre sticking out. Clean this off with an alcohol wipe or dipped cotton ball. If you are making earrings, simply apply the earring backs to the exposed portion of the shortened pin, and you have yourself a pair of fresh flower earrings for Christmas!

If you want to make a tapestry, you can either thread your petals through, as with a needle and thread, or glue each one individually to the string. Make sure you measure out your string, think about the height and width you want for your tapestry, and plan where you will to hang it up for maximum effect.

Decorated Christmas Tree Earrings and Mini Wreaths

Want to add a little extra to your Christmas tapestry? Make your earrings that much more adorable, with a brash evergreen twist. Try adding a mini wreath or sprig of holly berries to your line of petals.
