DIY upcycled paper flower chandelier

paper-flower-chandelierDuring the summer I’m outside as much as possible, whether I’m weeding my garden or or sitting outside working on my laptop. I can’t let those precious sunrays go to waste! In those moments when you can’t be outside, why not bring the outdoors in with a garden chandelier?! Specifically, a paper flower upcycled chandelier fit for your home?! I partnered with method to repurpose a dirty old chandelier that I found at a thrift store and gave it new life with a good cleaning and hundreds of paper leaves. It’s so easy to turn a not so attractive lighting fixture into a beautiful home decor piece. Let me show you how.

Mother’s day floral cake topper

Mother's Day cake topper flower-garden-cake-topper

I get my love of flowers from my mama. I grew up with her teaching me how to identify each of the various types, dressing in all floral dresses (product of the 80s I suppose 🙂 and watching The Secret Garden on repeat. Just last week when she was up here visiting, we went nursery hopping and she helped me pick out flowers for my new flower planters (and watching The Secret Garden again, of course).

This Mother’s Day, I partnered up with Hallmark Signature to select a card that reminded me of my mother. I just had to go with a bright and colorful floral number, clearly. We were so inspired by the shapes, dimensions and colors that we thought we had to add it to our celebratory festivities. Such an extraordinary mom called for no ordinary card and no ordinary cake. We made her this flower garden inspired cake topper to coordinate with the pretty embellishments of the card. Get the template and instructions below!

DIY Paper spring floral crown

floral-crown-final

Springtime calls for a celebration and a floral crown is the perfect way to do so. We love creating paper flower crowns because they won’t ever die (as long as you take care of them!). This one we dressed up with some acrylic paint to add in another fun dimension. See the full tutorial after the jump!

DIY paper flower bells

Paper bluebells

I’ve received a ton of questions about the paper flower bluebells and pink bells that we featured in our bridesmaid party shoot for BHLDN and I’m most happy to show you how I made them. I based the tutorial off of Morgan Levine’s lily of the valley tutorial on Martha Stewart. I love the versatility created with color and shape. They’d be wonderful as centerpieces for a party or even as decoration in your home. I’m going to be making some for my mantle! pink-tutorial-flowers
