DIY Flowers- Want that trend

DIY Flowers are a new trend we saw explode in 2015. In the house, at weddings, school craft activities (learning about seasons), birthdays pretty much everywhere!  We take a look at how you can create some of your very own.

The great thing about this DIY flowers project is that you can make it as simple or as complicated as you wish. You don’t always need to make bouquets you can do single flowers with or without stems. For this reason this makes a great project for an avid crafter or a school project. I know a few schools are looking at using a range of materials creatively and improve their mastery of art and design techniques so this project would be perfect and fit in with the curriculum.

Today we will take a look at 4 different methods of creating gorgeous DIY flowers.

Method 1 to create a paper flower bouquet we love this one from Confetti Day Dreams
