Hello again and welcome into my little world! I’ve been playing with my paints and with the help of some wonderful people I’ve put together a lovely little tutorial for any brides and grooms who fancy getting painty this weekend!

paper flowers tutorial

Ingredients for your paper flowers: crepe paper, cotton wool balls, big paintbrush, tube(s) of watercolour or gouache paint, double sided tape, scissors, bamboo skewers, bowl, and a microwave… and about 6 hours per 50 flowers!

The finished paper flowers were taken to a creative shoot which I hope will inspire couples to design and make some pretty bits and pieces for your own weddings. All of the paper pieces I made can be recreated at home so do watch out for the shoot – coming to a wedding blog near you soon! The three images from the shoot are by Jamie at Vickerstaff Photography and a full list of the fab suppliers involved is at the end of this feature.

I’ve seen so many bits of pretty wedding craft online this week I have to write a Monday Makerie for you to enjoy.

The Monday Makerie is all about making things for your wedding – I share my best finds from the internet of things you can make for your wedding, or things other people have made that you can buy!
