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?! 🙂
What are you doing to usher in spring into your home?
These are the cutest! I’m righ thtere with you about being ready for spring. We have had no snow but it’s rained for days here. I’m ready for some sunshine and warm Souterhn breezes!
Love the picture frames. They are so cute! I am just now trying out making some crafts and making some DIY frames have crossed my mind. I have been making pillows like crazy lately but t here is much room to grow! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Christie! They were super easy and turned out so cute!
