Luch time shenanigans: DIY paper and fabric flowers

19 Mar

2 months to go. TWO months to go until Zee German and I are Zee Wedded Hubby and Wifey!!! Which means it’s creative crunch time. A year of Pintresting, Blog Stalking and Planning is about to be tested for Round 1 (because we didn’t read the fine print that destination weddings are easier ONLY WHEN NOT HAVING A FOLLOW-UP RECEPTION – Future Destination Brides-to-Be you are welcome.).

With the wedding decor being very DIY themed, we figured it’s about time to see just how many of these ideas we can actually do. So with the enlisted help of some sweet co-workers the next couple Friday’s will be dedicated to “Pinterest Crafts”. Up this week: Flowers

Here are a collection of a few of my favorites and links to the DIY Tutorials. Let me know which you think are the best! Have any of you tried making them? Any others I missed? Let me know! {Sharing is Caring my friends}

{Giant Rose}{Mix and Match Pastels}{Paper Collection}{Water Color Corals}

These are a little more structured with a true geometric form and would look great as centerpieces or lining the aisle. And of course the giant variation added a unique touch to the beautiful wedding showcased on Green Wedding Shoes. Otherwise known as the most viral wedding post since THIS arch below. Which just so happened to also be on Green Wedding Shoes. (Talk about your monopoly on beauty!)

{Shaped Crepe Flowers}{The Arch that Launched a Thousand Searches}{Chiffon Classic Beauty}{Crepe Paper Pretties}

This arch was actually what got me into the idea of paper flowers. And how amazing is that design by Jesi Haack!?

The only difficulty is that we’ll be flying in to Mexico and somehow I don’t think transporting enough pinwheels and flowers to make that glorious archway will be too much fun across the border. But hopefully in our experimenting we’ll find a fun, realistic compromise.

So craft away my lovelies and do tell which ones you find most inspiring!
