Friday Favs: Paper Flowers

I have a weakness for paper flowers.  They’re beautiful in their own way without looking just like a fake flower.  With Easter right around the corner they seemed like a good Friday inspiration.  If you’ve got some time on Saturday you could even whip some up for centerpieces or get crafty with your kiddos.

Tissue paper dahlias are probably the most basic option, but they look pretty spectacular as a backdrop.

Daffodils are possibly the quintessential spring flower, but these you could keep year round.

Go big or go home right? If you have an over-sized floor vase this would be the perfect spring addition.

The instructions are in Spanish, but the pictures are pretty easy to follow to make fun watercolor mums.

Mmm… Magnolias!  They’re one of my favs, but we’re nowhere near their natural range.  These might be my own weekend craft.

This flower garland doesn’t have to accessorize a giant egg (although it is pretty cute).  You could also use it a runner for a centerpiece at Easter dinner (or your next springy brunch!).
