Flowers are the number one choice of decorations—they just make everything look pretty and lively. However, sometimes you might have some reasons to opt with fake flowers instead. Perhaps it’s not the season, or you want your flowers to be as fresh as possible. Yes, purchasing faux flowers can be an option, but did you know that they cost a lot more than real ones? So, why don’t you just make your own DIY flowers? Here is how you can do that!
Choose the Right Paper
Different flowers require different types of papers, but usually carton and crepe paper are sufficient. If you want a flowy flower, then crepe paper is right for you. However, if you want to create DIY flowers that have a sturdy shape such as hydrangea, we recommend you to use thicker paper instead.
Purchase Leaves and Stems
Any types of flowers need leaves and stems, so you can buy premade ones. They can easily be found in your nearest stationery shop. They usually are wire and paper that has been created to look like leaves and stems as much as possible. It’s easy to find and not worth the hassle to create from scratch!
Look Up the Template
You can easily find the templates to create a specific type of flower of your choice. The internet is full of downloadable templates that you can print and cut out right away. This will save you so much hassle and get straight to making DIY flowers! If you have some leftover stems, leaves and petals, simply make a wreath with them. Don’t let anything go to waste here!
Then, all you need to do is assemble everything together to form DIY flowers. Put it in a vase or hang it on the wall—whatever you like for your need. You can use this for a lot of purposes, from events to home décor.
