Easy DIY: Paper Hyacinths

I felt guilty throwing away all the scraps from the paper flowers I made, so I decided to try and make paper hyacinths.

I taped together two toilet paper tubes as the base and then covered one end with tissue paper.   

Bunching the circles into blooms, I started gluing across the covered end and then worked my way down the tube until I had covered as much as I wanted. I cut slits into the uncovered end so that I could taper it down. Using green masking tape and green tissue paper, I made the stem and leaves.

Note: I got tired of cutting out circles, so I tried it with squares. I just had to trim some points off at the end, but it saved a lot time.
