DIY Paper Flower Crown Make Your Own Colourful Fun Headpiece Papercraft-14

Flower crowns are one of my favourite accessories not only when it comes to weddings but also festivals (and every day life!) whether they’re real flowers, faux flowers or paper flowers I’m seriously obsessed, and all the better when the colours are as bright and bold as this DIY flower crown we’re sharing with you today! Holly from Club Crafted is going to demonstrate how fun making a crown like this is, they would look so adorable on little flower girls or even a great craft to do at a bridal shower! Over to Holly…

When I, Holly, set out to make paper flower crowns, I struggled with how to make flowers that were both simple to make and that would not appear cheesy or childish. After trying out a few different flower designs, I have two styles of flowers to share (with a template!) to make this project as easy as possible for you but still feel elegant, and once put together, these flower crowns are perfect for a bridal shower project or any other type of event you want to celebrate.

I’ll warn you, making these crowns is fun but will be a long process. Just use a variety of your favorite spring colored paper and start cutting! Once all of the pieces are cut and curled, the gluing is a piece of cake. If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, you can upload these PNG templates to cut for you. Otherwise, note that cutting by hand may take some time to cut enough flowers to fill the crown. There are two types of flowers: large individual petal flowers and smaller one-piece flowers.

STEP 1:

If cutting by hand, print the paper flower templates in your desired size and use them as templates to cut out flowers from the colored cardstock. The one-piece flowers should be about 4 inches wide. The individual petal flowers should be about 2 inches wide for the large petals and 1.5 inch wide for the small petals (5 large, 5 small per flower).

Note, cut some petal shapes out of green paper for leaves and cut the comb-looking pieces out of a yellow or similar color to be the middles of the flowers.

TURN A TRADITIONAL BRIDAL SHOWER ON ITS HEAD WITH THESE FUN & FUNKY IDEAS

A UNIQUE VIBRANT, COLOURFUL & MODERN BRIDAL SHOWER (35)

When I think of a bridal shower I often think of it as a rather muted affair, the decor is traditionally white and the guests sip tea whilst delicately nibbling at their sandwiches as the bride is showered with gifts. So you can imagine how much we love a bridal shower that turns that vision on its head and that is the very reason I am so excited to share today’s shoot with you. With it’s raw bohemian vibe, neutral tones and splashes of vibrant colour it is all you could want for a fun and modern bridal shower.
