DIY Paper Flowers: fun and easy crafts for kids & DIY home decor project
Here is a simple DIY project for you. Jeni is going to share how to make DIY paper flowers for us today. These fun and easy crafts add a vibrant touch of color to any room.
Crepe paper flowers are "in," cheap, and easy to make - even with littles around. I used these kits to make the flowers, but I think it'd be just easy to whip them out without a kit. Just find your own crepe paper, scallop the edges (or not!), grab some pipe cleaner, and follow the same steps below.
First, lay four sheets of crepe paper on top of each other. If you want a smaller flower - one that's "less full" - use less sheets.
Fold the crepe paper back and forth, accordion style.
Wrap a 12" piece of pipe cleaner around the folded crepe paper, and twist it till its tight
Starting in the middle, unwrap the pieces of crepe paper one sheet at a time...
...until it looks like a flower. Ta da! Pretty and easy, right?
Thanks for letting me stop by today. Cheers to creating and sharing pretty little things!
