DIY Flower Decoration

HEADER

IMG_4728It’s April that means spring has finally arrived. Somehow the weather agreed on this and decided it was time to actually act like spring instead of autumn (seriously, the weather in the Netherlands was so bad the past week). And because I’m super excited for spring I decided to do a flower themed DIY. It’s super easy to make and it will instantly make any room spring-ready.

You need:

  • A few sheets of white paper (I only used three but if you want to make a bigger decoration you’ll need more)
  • A needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • A branch

Steps:

  1. Start off with making some paper flowers. Just fold your white paper in 12 pieces as shown above and cut out a flower shape. This way you’ll have 12 identical flowers in one cut. You can use the shapes I used above (you’ll have to glue the second shape together) or come up with your own shapes.
  2. Knot a string of thread onto your branch and sew the paper flowers onto your thread. I just stitched the thread through the paper flower once, stitched it back through a new hole and stitched it back again through the first hole (I know this is a bad description but I hope you understand). Repeat this to with the other flowers. You can attach as many flowers on each string as you like.
  3. Repeat for the other strings and you’re done!

You can make this decoration as big or as small as you want. It’s quite time-consuming but a lot of fun to make. I know the steps aren’t very clear because I had a hard time explaining this in proper English but hopefully the pictures are self-explanatory. Let me know in the comments if you did any fun spring DIY’s lately!
