How to Make Foam Aster Flower

Let’s look at the process of making asters with foam in two colors. Flowers look like real ones because they are made of amazing material. This lesson shows how to make an aster flower out of foam.

Total Time: 35 minutes

Step 1: Prepare the strips

Yellow and Purple Stripes

Make preparations for the future aster. Cut a strip 30 cm (11,8110”) long and 5 cm (1,9685”) wide from the purple foam. For the center of the flower, cut a narrow yellow strip 1 cm (0,3937”) wide and about 20 cm (7,8740”) long.

Step 2: Working with the yellow strip

Begin forming the center of the aster. Make frequent cuts with the scissors on the yellow blank. The cuts should not reach the opposite edge.

Step 3: Use a metal part

Yellow Stripe and Wire

Take a floral wire, twist it and glue it to the edge of the yellow strip.

Step 4: Use the glue

Twisting the Yellow Stripe

Twist the yellow blank and fix it periodically with hot glue. In this case, the cuts should be facing up, they will be the stamens of the flower.

Step 5: Twist the strip

You should get a yellow center of the flower as in the photo.

Step 6: Glue the purple strip

Gluing the Purple Stripe

Take the purple strip of foam to make the aster petals. Fold the edges of the strip in half and glue them together.

Step 7: Finish gluing the purple strip

Glued Purple Stripe

You should get a strip glued on one side.

Step 8: Cut the purple stripe

Use scissors to make cuts on the side of the fold that does not reach the glued side.

Step 9: Complete the strip

Cuts on the Entire Purple Stripe

Make these cuts along the entire purple strip.

Step 10: Cut along the fold

Cutting a Strip at the Bend

Use scissors to cut a line along the entire length of the purple strip at the fold. This will leave a narrow blank for the aster petals.

Step 11: Connect the yellow and puple foam together

Place the yellow center on the edge of the purple strip and hot glue it in place.

Step 12: Fix it with glue

Purple Aster Petals

Continue to twist the lilac petals onto the yellow blank. Use hot glue to fix the petals in place periodically.

Step 13: Spread the flower

Flower on the Reverse Side

This is easier to do if you turn it over, then the petals should spread out to the sides.

Step 14: Get an aster with straight petals

Aster with Straight Petals

The flower should look like this from the front side, as shown in the photo.

Step 15: Wave the petals

Aster with Folded Petals

Use an iron to make the flower more realistic. Place your flower on a preheated iron for a few seconds. Form the petals if necessary. Cut the extra floral wire from the back of the flower. You should get a similar aster from foam.
