    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    1
    Print and cut out the template available as a PDF file at the bottom of this page. Make spruce tips by cutting a 30 x 5 cm piece of crepe paper. Follow the stretch direction on the template.
    Guide step %d
    2
    Stretch the piece of crepe paper as shown in the photo.
    Guide step %d
    3
    Fold the piece of crepe paper twice lengthwise; you now have four layers. Cut fringes along one length through all four layers. Cut the fringes with an approx. 3 mm gap between each, 5 cm from the edge.
    Guide step %d
    4
    Roll up this piece of crepe paper tightly, rolling it between your hands as shown in the photo to thin out the fringes.
    Guide step %d
    5
    Unfold the piece of crepe paper and attach one end of it onto one end of a floral stem wire using a glue gun. Wrap the paper around the top of the floral stem wire a couple of times to secure it.
    Guide step %d
    6
    Continue wrapping the crepe paper downwards at an angle around the floral stem wire, regularly applying glue. Use a glue gun or multi glue.
    Guide step %d
    7
    Make 15-20 of these spruce tips as shown in the photo, depending on the thickness of the wreath.

    8
    Use the template to cut out all the parts for a flower. Remember to cut out following the stretch direction on the templates. Make a total of 12 large and small flowers for the Advent wreath. The guide for the flower in steps 9-18 describes how to make a flower using six large crepe paper petals arranged around a gold berry together with a piece of crepe paper for the stamen and a piece of 1 cm wide x 20 cm long green crepe paper to cover the stalk.
    Guide step %d
    9
    Pull out the piece of crepe paper for the stamen as described in step 2. Cut fringes lengthwise along one side as described in step 3. Roll it up tightly and roll it between your hands as described in step 4. Dip the fringes in a blob of multi gel and into a tub of glitter. Leave to dry for approx. 10 min.

    Make and shape the petals. Round each petal with a bone folder by pulling the petal between the bone folder and your thumb; the same technique as curling a ribbon with scissors.
    Guide step %d
    11
    Shape the petal by stretching the middle of it, so that it becomes rounds. Repeat this procedure with the rest of the petals.
    Guide step %d
    12
    Twist the edge of the petal back and forth along the entire edge as shown in the photo in order to create a wavy edge. Repeat this procedure with all six petals.
    Guide step %d
    13
    Add glitter along the top edge of the petal by attaching glue and then dabbing this part of the petal in a tub of glitter. Repeat this procedure with all six petals and leave to dry.

    14
    Attach the stamen around the stalk of the artificial gold berry.
    Guide step %d
    15
    Attach the first petal onto the stamen with a glue gun or multi glue.
    Guide step %d
    16
    Distribute and attach another two petals around the stamen. Attach the remaining three petals staggered between the first three petals.
    Guide step %d
    17
    Cover the floral stem wire with floral tape or the cut-out crepe paper. Stretch out the long piece of green crepe paper. Attach one end onto the joint where the petals are glued onto the stamen, covering this joint. Wrap the paper angled around the floral stem wire, securing with glue as you go along.
    Guide step %d
    18
    If you don't want a gold berry in the middle of the flower, then simply glue the stamen directly onto a floral stem wire.
    Guide step %d
    19
    Mix and match with or without berries, large or small petals and with or without glitter as you wish.
