I am so ready for Spring! It seriously can’t get here fast enough for me. I’m trying to usher it into my home by adding spring touches to my decor. I’ll have a really cool mantle decor project to show you Friday, but today, I want to show you how I dressed up my fireplace screen with DIY Framed Paper Flower Decor!
As much as I loved my Winter White Mantle, I felt it was high time to inject some color into my home!
These are so easy to make, and the color and pattern options are limitless. You need a few laser cut frames, scrapbook paper, and paint.
Trim the scrapbook paper to fit neatly in your laser cut frames. I chose two black-and-white papers (one with script and one with music notes), and one with turquoise and white polka dots.
I painted two of my frames a pretty teal and one of them a bright pink.
Once the paint dries, all that’s left to do is glue the paper to the frame, and add your flowers.
Now, I don’t have step-by-step photos of the paper flowers because it takes two hands to make them, and I didn’t have a third hand to take pictures, but they are super easy.
– Cut a piece of cardstock in a spiral – just round and round with your scissors.
– Start at the outer edge and begin rolling the paper into itself tightly. Roll it all the way to the inside swirl.
– Let it go, and it will loosen into a soft little flower.
These little framed paper flowers are so bright and happy! I love how they look hanging on my fireplace screen. I just used pieces of twine to attach them.
By the way, if you have Project Life cards, I used 4×6 Project Life cards to make the bigger flowers.
I used a 3×4 Project Life card for my smaller flower.
Try different patterns of paper and different sizes of spirals to vary your paper flowers. You could even make a garland!
I’m just going to sit on my couch and admire my bright colors and pretend it’s really spring outside.
A girl can dream, can’t she?! 🙂
