DIY Hot Glue Flower Hack
- Freezer paper
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Glitter (optional)
First, secure freezer paper to your work surface shiny side up.
Secondly, squeeze a dab of glue to create one petal and allow it to cool completely before creating the next. Rushing this process results in a flat, undefined flower.

Next, repeat step 2 with three small dabs of glue to make a center for your flower. Once cooled, pop your center off the freezer paper and apply to the flower with an additional small dot of glue.
If you plan to paint them, finish your hot glue flowers by rubbing the shine off with a cloth rag.
Once cooled, hot glue flowers will pop right off the freezer paper.
Lastly, add paint (and glitter while wet, if desired) to finish off your flowers!
Simply drag your hot glue into elongated petals following the tutorial above. Make both one larger variation and one smaller to stack. Paint the petals.
Next, as you create the center drops, sprinkle with gold glitter while hot. Once cooled, stack on top of the smaller Edelweiss flower petals.
LEGEND OF THE EDELWEISS
According to Alpine folklore, suitors proved their love by climbing the high crags of the Alps in search of the edelweiss flower. Tragically, many suitors fell to their death or died of exposure to the weather. The edelweiss is still worn today as a symbol of love, bravery, strength and dedication. Because of its popularity with German and Austrian emperors, edelweiss is called the flower of emperors and kings.
