How to make paper wisteria
Most of you know that paper flowers are totally "my thing" :)
I am on a mission to attempt to create pretty much any kind of flower that exist in nature into paper flowers.
Today I'll be sharing how I came up with this paper hanging wisteria design.
Wisteria is probably my second favorite flower next roses and certainly makes an eye catching addition anywhere from weddings, to showers and even nursery or home decor.
Check out just few of these enchanting uses for wisteria...

Use wisteria to hang from a beautiful wedding arch.
A lanterns glow can highlight your flowers.
Use the classic wisteria shades as inspiration for a wedding or event's color palette.
A beautiful addition to a shabby chic bedroom.
In fact I'm redoing Ella's room next week with pastel roses and hanging wisteria. I can't wait to show you how it turns out!
Here's a sneak peak of what I have laying in my studio.
Or how about a whole hanging wall of wisteria?! This would make a stunning photo backdrop!
So how do you make this amazing stuff? Some of the images above come with good tutorials using tissue paper.
I personally like to use card stock so it remains more durable for a long time. Check out my full video tutorial below to learn how.
Here are the supplies you will need to gather:
65 lb card stock (shades of purples, creams or whites work best)
Scissor and/or cutting machine
22 gauge wire
Small pearl beads
Rolling mat & tool (find here)
