We assume that we don't need to explain the inspiration for this amazing piece. The Mistletoe is one of the must-haves from the fourth collection of our paper flowers. And as always, it has been designed by Kristina from Labdecor in a collaboration with Studio About.
Mistletoe is created from coloured green crepe paper wrapped around a metal wire that can be adjusted - having small white beads around to represent the Mistletoe's berries.
BRING NATURE INTO YOUR HOME
Use Mistletoe year after year as a Christmas ornament as it doesn't wither away and is still perfect for inviting for a kiss. Furthermore, it is obvious to use it as a gift for the hostess during Christmas time.
Opposite other paper flowers, the Mistletoe offers a lot of green, but where the white berries will almost light up making the Mistletoe a great match with a bouquet.
This branch can therefore be used by itself or be combined with other paper flowers - or even regular flowers. Just make sure that the paper flowers do not get in contact with water.
Additionally to the decorative properties of paper flowers, they are also both versatile and long-lasting. We have put together some inspiration for you who want to use the paper flowers in different ways - either in your decor, on the table or as accessories. If you feel like something new, the flowers can be reused in new creative projects.
Make the table decorations extra by putting Mistletoes around the table together with other decorative objects such as candle holders - for example at weddings to emphasise the love symbol that the Mistletoe is.
Mix your branch with other paper flowers or regular flowers (protect paper flowers from water).
Mix with dried plants and flowers as a colourful addition.
Jars with electric lights inside? Put some Apple Flowers into the jar and have the lights make the flowers' colours light up.
Decorate birthday presents/girlfriend presents/just-because-presents with Apple Flowers as the icing on the cake.
Use thicker branches in your decorations and decorate these with a Mistletoe to emphasise the mistletoe's way of growing.
Add them to a flower wreath for either your hair or for the table.
The Mistletoe fits in both small and large vases - bend the stem a few times and use it in a small Standing Bubble or leave it in all its glory in the tall cylinder vase Flower Tube.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR BRANCH
When you receive the flower, you need to unfold the leaves yourself. You can choose whether the flower should be fully open or slightly more closed.
The crepe paper is also easily shaped and if you gently rub the thumb into a leaf, you can give the leaf a slight rounding. This way you can give your flowers a personal look and they will be livelier and truer to nature.
Follow these 3 steps to unfold it completely:
Carefully grab the flower head down in the box and pull it out.
Spread the petals of the flower.
To create more fullness, you can gently pull your thumb in the centre of a petal, making them more curved.
