Bring the spring vibes with this DIY paper hyacinth flowers.
Spring is just around the corner, but it still feels winter here in Alberta, and there is no sign that we’ll get a warmer temperature soon. (Welcome to Alberta! A place where you can experience winter in the summer season… LOL )
So to bring the foreboding of spring in our house, we decided to make paper hyacinth flowers. It is an easy spring craft that you, too, can make. And, I promise, the different colours of paper will lighten up your room just like fresh flowers.
Here’s how you can make the paper hyacinth flowers.
DIY Paper Hyacinth Flowers
- Coloured papers
- Barbecue sticks
- Hot glue
- Fringe scissors (optional)
- Floral tape (you can substitute with green painter’s tape or green crepe paper)
Cut paper into half (lengthwise) then fold the paper into half (lengthwise).
Using a fringe scissor (you can use a regular pair of scissors), snip the paper horizontally but don’t cut it all the way through.
Carefully unfold the paper. Then hot glue together the edges of the wrong sides, this will create a volume.
Use a barbecue stick for the stem of the flower. Hold the fringed paper slightly diagonal and start rolling it from the tip to about 3/4 of the stick. Use hot-glue to secure the paper to the barbecue stick.
Cut leaves, then roll right after the fringed paper.
Then cover the rest of the stick with floral tape.
Repeat process using different colours then arranged it in a flower vase or basket.
And that’s it. Super easy, fun to make, and surely a papercraft that will brighten up your day. Don’t forget to pin and save this project.
