14 Paper Flower DIY Projects for Spring

DesignSponge DIY Paper Flowers
This past weekend was like one giant smile. I slept in for the first time in I don’t know how long and the weather finally tipped above 50 degrees, letting in the sun and giving some freezing New Yorkers a little taste of spring. I immediately wanted to open up the windows and buy some new plants, but then I saw that yet another cold snap and more snow (When will it end??) are coming. So I decided it was better to focus on something less dependent on actual light and warm temperature to grow. I’ve been watching paper flowers online for a while now, excited to see them grow into an area where truly beautiful and sophisticated versions are now available to make or buy. I’ve always associated them with something a little more cutesy than grown up, but these 14 options are elegant and perfect for dressing up a table that could use some color, but doesn’t quite have the outdoor weather to make (a nature version of) that possible yet. So here are my favorite DIYs that prove just how stunning (and sometimes, easy!) paper flowers can be. Happy flower-making! xo, grace
