July 7th - Crepe Paper Chinese Lantern Flowers

135.00

The bright orange lantern-like husks of the Physalis alkekengi plant’s fruits—commonly called Chinese Lanterns—mimic silk lanterns of Asia. In Japan, the fruit’s coverings are celebrated as plant guides for the souls of beloved family members on their return home from the spirit world. At home, even just a stem or two of Chinese Lanterns adds a cheerful, punchy touch to late summer and fall arrangements. They are the perfect choice when you want a touch of color without the fragile dustiness of dried plants. In this class, you will be provided with a selection of crepe paper in greens, yellows, oranges, and browns to mimic the ombre effect of a fruiting Physalis stem. You will also learn how to create the lacy effect of a lantern that has dried to a delicate skeleton form using a special mulberry paper.
