DIY paper flower brooch



I’ve been doing quite a bit of drawing recently and really fancied doing some DIY. Well actually, I haven’t posted a craft project for a few weeks (or is it months?) and came across a set of visual instructions on how to make delightful paper flowers. Check them out on Sugar & Cloth. Therefore, I thought I’d give it a go and make my very own DIY paper flower brooch, which is pretty easy to make with the right tools and materials. I was so pleased with my paper flower brooch that I wanted to share it with you.


DIY paper flower brooch




  • White, yellow & black crépe paper
  • Green foam sheet
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • Floral wires
  • Florist tape
  • Glue gun & glue stick
  • Brooch fastener

*When cutting out the leaves, I first drew my outline with a pencil to make sure that the overall shape was what I wanted.


1_From the yellow and black crépe paper, cut out 10 cm strips. Place a yellow and black strip together, then twist so they combine together. Fold these in half.
2_Cut out the inner yellow petals and glue to the inner yellow and black strips.
3_Cut out eight white petals and with the scissors, carefully curl the edges. Then attach these to the yellow petals, with some glue.
4_Cut out your leaves and position them on the outer white petals, then glue in place
5_Wrap some of the floral wire around the base of the flower, to secure all of the components
6_Then with the florist tape, wrap this around the petals and leaves
7_With the glue gun, add a few drops of the glue and attach the brooch fastener and violá!






It had taken me approximately thirty minutes to assemble and the materials didn’t cost a lot either. All the materials used, I bought from Hobbycraft. There’s a local shop near me and I like to pop in every now and then, for craft ideas. You can also purchase on-line and they such a broad selection of resources for most DIY projects.

Here’s my source of inspiration. Check out these paper flowers for colours and detailing. They’re so beautiful, don’t you think?








All of these paper flowers are made by Racheal from appetitepaper.

    Hi Eloise. Thank you for the liking the post!! These flowers are so pretty and don’t take long to assemble. I used a fresh colour palette with my paper flower, however, you can experiment with lots of different shades and just have fun!
