How to Wire Crepe Paper Petals and Leaves

Use straight wires, not spool wire, unless the petals are very small. Cut the wires a little longer than the petals to which they are to be attached. Hold about six wires by one end, keeping them out in a flat row rather than in a tight bunch. Rest the other end on a piece of paper on the table and cover one side of the wires with paste. Place the wires, one at a time, sticky side down, in the center of a petal or leaf, allowing the extra length to extend below the base. Press down firmly until dry.
