DIY Favorites – Paper Flowers

I like having live flowers in my home. They add color and beauty to my space. However, they don’t last.

Fortunately, paper flowers are a beautiful alternative. They don’t cost a lot of money to make. Plus, they can be recycled with paper waste when they fall apart.

They can be made with a variety of materials such as tissue paper, crepe paper, craft paper.  The possibilities are endless – just use your imagination!

If you want to make paper flowers, here are a few projects that you may like:
