DIY Paper Flowers

I found a pin on Pinterest on diy paper flowers and I cannot believe how real they look! Plus, they were so easy to make.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. Paper

2. Scissors

3. Hot Glue

And that’s it!  Crazy simple!

The first step is to cut your paper into petals.  I made 4 different sizes for the flowers.

After cutting out your petals, you then roll down the sides as pictured above.  This will make the flower look more authentic looking.

To make the stem I rolled a thin strip of paper and then glued it together at the bottom.  After rolling the petals you will then start to glue them around the stem starting from smallest to biggest petal.

You will keep working around the stem until you have a flower that is full and to your liking.

After making my first flower I decided to make 3 more to fill up a vase.  I love them and the best part is that they will never die!

    Wow! These are so beautiful & real-looking! I can’t believe I never thought to do this before. How many petals do you use per flower? Lovely tutorial!

    It looks like the paper might be a cream color.. What color/type paper did you use?

      Thanks Jennifer! I used a stiff cream paper. It wasn’t quite card stock but also not regular computer paper. Honestly, any kind of paper would work.
