DIY Paper Flowers

Just last week, I was driving in Hillsboro Village (a cute shopping and dining area in Nashville) when I looked over at one of my favorite stores (Social Graces) to see these darling white paper flowers covering their windows. I almost had a wreck. I HAD to find out how they made those. Lucky me there was a craft night just a few days later where Erin Duffy of Social Graces taught us how to make them. Now, I get to teach you! Thanks, Erin!

These paper flowers were strung together and hung in the window. I think they would make fabulous garlands for an outdoor party or even made in holiday colors for inside decorations. Match them with your party colors or use white for a wedding! There really is no “right or wrong”, just learn the steps, get creative, and have fun. Add in your own element like rimming the edges in glitter or using different sheets of patterned paper.

What you’ll need:


Thick Cardstock (I used white, but get creative and use colors or even old book pages)

Brads (regular and “mini” size)

Hot glue
