Mother's Day Curly Paper Hyacinths


Real flowers and plants are always fabulous to have in your home especially during the holidays and special occasions. But if you're tired of them not lasting or are too costly to keep on a regular basis then making these spring curly paper hyacinths just may be a solution. And what a wonderful way to make these with your child or grandchild for that awesome Mother's Day gift.

    looking at your photo, i really thought the green leaves were
    rubber gloves, which i feel would not be a bad idea anyway.
    i truly liked you effort and think i will give it a go for my
    mother in law, just because.
    your design caught my eye mainly because i enjoy quilling,
    interesting twist on that.
