Paper Daffodils

I created this display of paper daffodils on my empty wall to add a spring touch to my living room. Decorating can be very frustrating at times because you can spend so much money trying to make your house look nice and then still have a hard time figuring out what to do with all of it. This is why I love crafts like these giant paper flowers. because they are very cheap and easy to make and they add a lot of brightness to a room. I made roses for my daughters nursery, but this time I wanted to come up with something more springy, like daffodils

What you’ll need:

  1. 3 (8.5×11) pieces of card stock  paper for the petals
  2. 1 (8.5×11) piece of card stock paper for the center
  3. Paper Daffodil Pattern
  4. scissors
  5. hot glue gun & glue sticks

Directions:

  1. Trace and cut out the petals and center pieces
  2. Cut a slit in the bottoms of each petal and each center.
  3. Hot glue one half of the bottom over the other so that the petal stands up.
    1. Be sure to have each petal at about a 45 degree angle, don’t make them stand straight up.
    2. The centers should stand at almost a 90 degree angle, they should be standing straight up.
  4. Curl the ends of the petals with a pencil. Do not curl the centers
  5. Hot glue two petals together (repeat twice).
  6. Hot glue the clusters of petals together at the bottom and then at the tops of each petal to hold them together
  7. Hot glue the center pieces together at the bottoms and then at the tops to hold them together
  8. Hot glue the center down into the petals.
  9. Hang on wall using command strips
