DIY paper flowers are the perfect inexpensive and easy way to have the happiness of flowers indoors all year-long.
While I love to grow flowers in my yard and garden, the downside is that so many of them only stay fresh less than one week once cut.
This is why realistic looking paper flowers make the best way to enjoy your favorite flowers all year long.
What I’ve always LOVED about paper crafts is that it makes easy home decor on a budget, plus makes an inexpensive crafting hobby on a budget. Kids always enjoy making paper flowers too, so it makes a wonderful parent child craft to enjoy together.
Whether you prefer giant easy paper flowers for a party, delicate crepe paper flowers for a vase, or want to make a paper flower wreath to keep up all year, you’ll love our collection of gorgeous paper flower ideas you can make at home.
Crepe Paper Poppies
These lovely oriental poppy flowers are made of crepe paper. While creme paper itself is very delicate, since the project only requires 6 leaves per stem this makes a great paper flower project for beginners.

Paper Hydrangea Wreath
This gorgeous paper hydrangea wreath is so much easier than it first appears. Wouldn’t you love to enjoy hydrangeas all year long? They’re definitely one of my favor flowers and would love to display this gorgeous paper wreath.
The project just requires foam balls and paper punches, the paper cutouts get curled to give them the realistic hydrangea flower look.

Peonies are truly one of my absolute favorite flowers! Do you love them too?? While we do have peonies in our garden, unfortunately they’re placed in a spot we don’t see them unless we hunt them out in the spring.
I’m going to fully admit here that one year they came early and had already bloomed and were done before I even checked back in the corner. Boy was I ever sad!
These lovely paper peonies are an easy way to enjoy peonies much longer than their typical growing season.

DIY Paper Wysteria
This stunning wisteria definitely brings back childhood dreams.
This project uses a Sissix machine, and would require purchasing a certain template to make this exact project. But I’m sure there’s a similar flower punch you could use and hand punch the flowers instead.

Paper Cherry Blossoms
Can you even believe these paper cherry blossoms aren’t real? I definitely had to do a double take!
Our street is lined with cherry blossoms in front of every house and it’s a flower much appreciated where we live in the PNW.
While the paper flower buds are made out of tissue paper, the branches and leaves of course are not, Happy Happy Nester of course also includes instructions on how to assemble those also.
