Mothers Day Flowers to DIY

How to Make Tissue Paper Flowers. We made about a thousand paper flowers around here. In every shape or form possible. In fact, we found that the more paper flowers you make, the more creative you get making them.

My favorite one is a red crepe paper flower, which has a yellow heart from recycled netting that lemons are sold in. I dunked the crepe paper flower’s outer petals in water, squeezed out quite a lot of the red ink, and then let it dry upside own, which created beautifully natural edges around the petals.

Tissue Paper Flowers in Blossom Branches or a Bouquet for Mothers Day?

Attached to twigs and branches, tissue paper flowers can look amazingly realistic. What do you think? A dead branch has come alive here. The trick to making this work well, is to add little flower buds at the end of the sticks, and to make relatively smallish tissue paper flowers.


In contrast, over-sized paper flowers, in simple shapes tend to look festive, abundant and joyful. Like in this bouquet here.

Flower styles are personal.
