If you’ve been reading long here at Diva Entertains, you know we like DIY Flower tutorial posts.  You can read one HERE.. and HERE… and HERE

And more today!

First up, from Martha Stewart, Cupcake Paper Flowers!

And another Cupcake Liner Flower tutorial, from Intimate Weddings: They provide terrific step-by-step instructions with photos!

These adorable ric-rac flowers are actually for hair-clips, BUT I think they could be used as floral centerpieces in a variety of ways.  Another great step-by-step tutorial.  And although it shows the use of a sewing machine – fabric glue might work too!  From Oh For Sweetness Sake:


From Style Me Pretty, a lovely DIY Flower Bracelet… that, again, could be used in a variety of ways.  It’s a great tutorial for how to attach flowers (faux or real) to wire stems!

And finally, from Once Wed, an incredibly FAB flower favor box.  I know this is a little outside the realm of “just flowers”, but I couldn’t pass up sharing the lovey tutorial.  It includes the free template for the box as well as instructions (with pics) on how to make and assemble it – beautiful!:

Thrifty Thursday – Paper Flower Tutorial

I promised it yesterday, and here I am with a THRIFTY THURSDAY post!

It’s the post each week in which I show you how to make something fabulous, creative, and elegant… for very little money (and occasionally little effort).

Ok, I’ll be honest.

I might not always be the one to SHOW you… but I can certainly LEAD you to a tutorial that WILL show you.  I’m helpful like that!

Today’s DIY Paper Flowers tutorial comes from one of my favorite blogs, titled simply, MADE.

I can promise this won’t be the last time I post a tutorial from Dana’s lovely blog.  I don’t know which I like more – her writing or her photography – and I bookmark blog posts regularly.

So, today!  I’m going to share with you a favorite – simple and elegant and easy.

Wallflowers… made from paper napkins.  Like tissue paper flowers, but with some durability.

Dana’s tutorial shows you various ways to create these lovely handmade paper flowers.

Traditional…

And spiky…

And more!  You’ll feel like you are back in elementary school again, only your end product will be so much more fabulous!
