It’s a dreary, dull, grayish world outside my window, and everywhere else we go. I’m craving color! So, when nature refuses to cooperate with my request for vibrancy, I guess we’ll have to turn to a different solution.
How about some paper flowers? Especially with Valentine’s Day right around the proverbial corner. You can pick the color, the size, the kind of paper, the style… it’s completely up to you with these great tutorials. I secretly want to decorate an entire wall of my daughter’s room in paper flowers and surprise her.
DIY Oversized Paper Flowers
visit Rock Paper Scissors for the tutorial
These oversized flowers are a perfect modern take on the more traditional table decorations. But they’d be lovely in other ways too—a wreath of flowers, or several hanging from the ceiling perhaps?
DIY Paper Flower Arch
visit Ruffled Blog for the tutorial
I don’t know that you need a complete arch in your every day life, but I love the soft ruffly look of these flowers individually.
DIY Pointed Paper Flowers
visit Icing Designs for the tutorial
The pointed curves of this flower are super cool—click through to see several other styles too!
DIY Paper Tulips
visit Trendenser for the tutorial
Super mod tulips are my new favorite—they’d make beautiful boutonnieres. Or present toppers too, if you’re not in a cupcake topper kind of mood.
DIY Giant Paper Rose
visit Green Wedding Shoes for the tutorial
Anytime the scale of an everyday object is changed, I find it fascinating all over again. Is it an Alice in Wonderland kind of thing? These roses would be such fun party favors—or give them out on Valentine’s Day!
DIY Paper Flower Bouquet
visit Oh Happy Day for the tutorial
A simplified flower like these feel super fresh—especially in such a bright and cheerful palette of colors. I definitely want an entire bouquet.
