Green LED Paper Flowers - Wedding Centerpieces

Some time ago I made a paper flower that glows in the dark with the light of 10 LED lights. I still keep it in my home - nothing better than some blue light on a winter night - makes everything more wintery :)

This time, I made 10 paper flowers with 20 LEDs in several shades of green - not just because I like to dabble in green, but because there's a creative March wedding in the works - a great event I'm happy to be a part of.

Anyways, these paper flowers, along with my favorite wall flowers will be the star decorations at the reception. They look pretty as they are, but especially enchanting when lit up.

I'm sending these babies to my friend Belinda, and come March, I'll post a few photos from the wedding, too.

More From Paper Flowers, Wall Flowers, Gift Toppers

Here's a more detailed look at my recently made paper flowers which can be used as gift toppers or hanged lovingly on a wall as paper art pieces.

These are similar to my paper mums, made some time this fall.

Pretty and delicate as they were, I had to give them the extra dimension by constructing a wedding paper bouquet out of their flower heads in peacock colors such as, blue, purple, gold, and gray.

hand-sewn paper butterfly

The idea for this hand sewn butterfly came to me from the fabric sewn moths made by an artist that goes by the name of BlueTerracotta on Etsy.

I had some nice silk stitching thread and pretty lavender paper, so piece by piece, stitch-by-stitch, the butterfly got its beautifully detailed wings. 

I added a bit of wire at the back to make it easy to hang on the wall.

Fire Palette - Paper Flower Pomander with Butterflies

Let's start 2011 with hot fiery colors -
I'm into reds, bright yellows and oranges... an homage to the magnificent outside fire we had at the cabin in the woods over New Year's.
Pomander = paper flowers + paper butterflies + red satin ribbon
