10 Paper Flower DIYs for Spring

by Grace Bonney

For the past few weeks, the Hudson Valley has been blanketed in row after row of rain clouds. No fun for anyone who wants to get outside for some fresh air, but our plants and trees are happier than ever. I’ve had flowers and gardening on my mind ever since this weather hit, so today I thought I’d share 10 projects that embrace spring flowers in a way that doesn’t require water, care or a green thumb. Each of these DIY ideas can be done with friends over the weekend, and they’d make for a great alternative centerpiece for a special at-home event. xo, grace
