Flowers from plastic tubes on the Internet are found, but made by another technology, from cut obliquely pieces of tubules. Flowers are similar to dahlias, beautiful, but the tips of the petals turn out very much! sharp. In my opinion, this is unsafe, especially when working with children. I have not seen flowers like mine.

For the manufacture of such flowers will need tubes of different colors, scissors – and all! No glue, everything is based on friction (although if you want to use glue, of course, you can).
Scissors fit not all, some tubes do not cut, but crush, and one more condition – scissors should be with narrow blades, smaller than the diameter of the tubes.

The diameter of these tubes is 5 mm, it is most common.
A green tube is used entirely, this one will be a stem. It is, of course, rather green, and the pictures are almost blue … but let it be green.
It’s good that the tube is corrugated, you can bend this accordion.
For the petals, you can take one color, I took two, red and yellow, first, to make it better to see, and secondly, I liked it when different colors are used in the production.

We cut the top of the green tube, cuts 2.5 cm, 8-9 petals.

From the red and yellow tubes we cut two segments of 4 cm and 3.5 cm, I took it in a shorter order so that the first rows of petals do not overlap, but look a little.
The dimensions are approximate, it is possible and longer, then the flowers in diameter will be larger.

For any length of the tubes, the petals are cut so that 1 cm is left at the base. That is, when the length of the blank is 4 cm, the incisions are 3 cm, 3.5 cm – notches 2.5 cm, etc.
Therefore, it is easier not to measure the length of the petals but leave the bottom 1 cm.
So, cut the petals from the red billet 4 cm long, I get 10-12 petals (I started with 6-8).

Straighten the petals, fingers or pressing to the table.

At the base, we cut out two narrow wedges 6-7 mm in height, with a width of 1 mm at the bottom.

We insert red petals into the stem, thanks to wedges it is easy to make.

Side view. The tube in the tube should sit tightly.

Similarly, cut the yellow workpiece, cut out wedges.

We paste inside.

Then turn a few smaller tubes, 3.5 cm, cut them too, leaving 1 cm from below and cutting out wedges. We insert the third, the fourth is inserted with difficulty, so we can limit ourselves to three layers of petals.
The flower is ready.

We bought several sets of tubules of different manufacturers, with a diameter of 0.5 to 1 cm, I used tubes of the usual size, 5 mm, they are found most often. In one of the packages, the tubes were slightly larger, 6 mm in diameter, and a few of them were green, so I decided to paint the leaves.

The segment on the left was 3 cm, on the right 4.5 cm, the number of leaves 3-4-5, but you can cut again noodles. When I cut the leaves, I rounded, or rather stuck the tips, so that they were not too sharp.

On the tube itself, the leaves do not hold, they hold onto the end of the accordion.

Bouquet of small flowers.

I searched for my photos for something similar – small flowers, pastel colors, petals in several rows, there is something …

And here are chrysanthemums, with narrow petals, fresh photos, they are even more similar.

Of the tubes with a diameter larger and the flowers are more impressive. For them, I took tubules 8 mm in diameter. The pattern of flowers is different, two rows of long petals and a contrasting median, markedly smaller in size, one or two rows.

The large flower has such dimensions: green stem – notches 2.7 cm, two rows of red petals – tubes of 7 cm, yellow center 4.5 cm.

Similar flowers, rudbeckia, only the colors on the contrary.

Another big flower, let it be chamomile, two rows of long blue petals, two rows of yellow, the same size.

By the way, about the size. It is not necessary to observe them, I give them just for orientation. The main thing is to leave about 1 cm to the inset. And the rest – approximate proportions, for example, if you select the middle, the tube should be noticeably smaller. Pipes on the middle I took a different size, because, in my opinion, it turns out more in bulk.

Two flowers, small and large, for comparison. The small tubes were translucent, but the large ones were not, so the larger flowers are brighter.

Flowers can be varied, for example, cut the tips of the petals by several millimeters.

You can twist the petals, it’s convenient to do with scissors.
Tubules for such flowers should be cut more truly, for 6-7 cm, and petals are thinner.
On the left, on the photo, an ordinary tube, on the right 8 mm in diameter. In the yellow tube, the plastic is slightly thicker, so it gets worse, so the pink twists better.

The yellow flower on the elephant is very similar in my opinion, the petals of the elephant are thin and slightly twisted.

Here are more flowers – I do not know how they are called – too, the petals are twisted down. ┬áIt turns out that this is also a rudbeckia! Koti prompted, thank you very much!

Motley and monochromatic flowers – and the one and the other cute.

And if you make the whole green top, then you will get a palm tree.

For comparison, the flower is straight and rounded. When I came up with the idea to twist the petals, I tried to do it on a straight flower, but it did not work out right away, the petals were wide for this. The finer petals of the flower on the right were rounded.

From these flowers, you can make a bouquet and give. This bouquet of “curly” flowers.

In this photo for the bouquet, I used the neck of a plastic bottle. Now I will explain why.

There are tall houseplants with a bare stem below, so I decided that you can “plant” bright flowers in the pot.

Of course, you can “plant” such flowers and on the street, then it is better to paste the petals, but you need a little glue. Get colorful plastic flowers for the garden-garden.
You can decorate and a flower bed or a bed in the country, especially in early spring or autumn, when the flowers are still or not already blossom, but I do not have a dacha, only on the windowsill.

The next thought is to combine business with pleasure and arrange a drip irrigation. In the flower shops are sold different figures, and then – almost free of charge, for pennies. You just have to screw the lid down at the bottom of the “vase”, it’s not safe to let the water oozing or make a hole in the lid. Then the bouquet will serve not just decoration but will benefit the flower.

Flowers, in my opinion, are very similar to salute.

I shot this salute from my house. It seems the truth?

And these fireworks in Tsaritsyno.

If you use a short stem instead of a long stem as the first row, you can draw a voluminous salute for some college, arrange a New Year’s or festive home fireworks, it will be safe, except for very young children.
The salute can be made from tubes of different diameters, on the right side are ordinary, 0.5 cm, on the left 0.8 cm, the length of the “petals” – if desired, I used three rows instead of four in the flowers, in my opinion, enough, in my opinion.
In the second and third rows, as well as in the colors, from the bottom, I left 1 cm, and in the first row 1.5-2 cm. If the salute will have to be pasted somewhere, then the leg can be slightly increased, if necessary. You can also twist the salute.

Such a bright, cheerful fireworks turned out! The more tubes of different colors and sizes you will have, the more colorful will be the salute in honor of the birthday or New Year.
