DIY Roundup: Fabric & Paper Flowers

Who doesn’t love flowers? Replacing aging bouquets can become expensive (and even time consuming), so why not try decorating with some fabric or paper flowers you make yourself? They’re pretty, ageless, and you won’t spend every day cleaning up dropping petals. Here are five of our favorite DIY flowers projects:

DIY Card Stock Flowers

These colorful faux flowers look beautiful decorating a wall. You’ll need a variety of colored card stock and a few small tools to make these flowers. This tutorial includes instructions on how to make scalloped flowers, fringed flowers, and spiral flowers so you can make a bunch of different kinds. Get the tutorial from Scrapbooks, Etc.

 

 

 

 

 

DIY Poppy

These diy poppies look amazing! This one is used as a present topper but we think these poppies could be used in a variety of decorating ways. To make these you’ll need a lit candle, chiffon or lightweight satin, black tulle, black embroidery thread, and a few more tools. Get the full tutorial from Creature Comforts.

 

 

 

 

DIY Giant Rose

Go big or go home. This giant rose from Green Wedding Shoes was originally intended as a wedding accessory, but we love it as an eye-catching home accent. You’ll need quite a few materials to make these paper flowers, including a few templates and some crepe paper, but the end result will be well worth it. Get the tutorial.

 

 

DIY Fabric Flowers

You don’t have to be a master sewer (or have a sewing machine!) to create these DIY fabric flowers. They may take a little patience and time, but they look pretty easy to make and will look beautiful arranged for a party or just as every day decor.

DIY Roses

We love how simple and classic these paper roses look on branches. They’re really easy to make, too! Just cut a spiral from some red paper and roll it up, then hot glue them to some branches and voila! Instant decor. Get the full step-by-step tutorial from Dozi Design.
