I was thinking about my daughter’s bedroom and how to make paper flowers for the nursery specifically. I ended up making paper flower wall decor for our bedroom as well. They were super easy to make. The hardest part of figuring out how to attach the paper flowers to the wall.
I decided to try and make the same thing for our bedroom. It never hurts to add a little more romance in the bedroom.
DIY Giant Paper Flower Backdrop
First, we need to start with the flowers. There are many different ways to make a big paper flower.
I ended up with tissue paper as my material of choice. I picked this because tissue paper is the easiest to work with, the least expensive and required the least amount of tools.
All good things.
