The families in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue have been using these flowers for the trangongtrang ba worship, a practice in central Vietnam to pray for residents’ wellbeing and safety from calamities.

It is said that for centuries, families in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue have been using these flowers for the trangongtrang ba worship, a practice in central Vietnam to pray for residents’ wellbeing and safety from calamities.

Villagers begin chopping and slicing dried bamboo in August to make the pedicles and paint it green.

Colorful petals are stowed and ready to be assembled into the flower pedicles. In the past, villagers would dye their own paper. Today, many families buy colored paper.

Nguyen Van Hien, 57, said locals begin making these paper flowers every lunar September to prepare for Tet. Every flower is handmade, from cutting to shaping the petals. This year, his family has prepared 1,000 paper flowers.

Instead of using industrial glue, Thanh Tien villagers make a special type of flour.
