Is this you? You buy an orchid. You enjoy the blooms for a month and then the flowers die off and you’re left with a pot of green leaves that refuses to produce more flowers no matter how much you take care of it.
It happens to me everytime I buy an orchid. It really annoys me. I’ve never been able to get an orchid to bloom again. I’ve had one grow a baby orchid but never flowers.
And if you’re like me, you don’t want a orchid for the leaves. you want it for the flowers.
Make this paper orchid and you’ll always have a “blooming” orchid around. You can forget to water it. You can keep it away from sunlight. And you’ll never have to ask someone to stop by to water it when your on vacation.
But if you have any tricks to get an orchid to bloom again, let me know in the comments below. I’d really like to know. 🙂

- 18 gauge green paper covered floral wire
