I’ve been recently looking around my home for all those craft projects that I have bought supplies for and never got around to actually making, and looking at my supplies to see what kinds of things I already have to decorate my home. This paper flower wall was one of those projects. I chose the colors orange, yellow, gold and white before I thought about them being perfect decor for the fall, this was a double win when I realized it wouldn’t need to come down in a few weeks.

I have made tissue paper flowers like this before for several other projects including a hanging display above my bed in college and bouquets for my bridesmaids and flower girls during the rehearsal. You can find tutorials all over pinterest for these and they are really easy to make.

For the garland I chose three different colors of paper that matched my wall and used a 3/4″ & 2″ hole punch to make a bunch of circles.

I really like this kind of project because of it’s less than permanent quality. I really like changing things up around my space and don’t want to spend a lot of money and time to do that. It only took about 2 hours to make the flowers and the garland for this project. So as a quick, inexpensive home decor craft I think I nailed it. What do you think?
