I LOVE peonies. I wish I had a whole garden of them and I hope to one day. I hear they are super easy to grow so that gives me hope! But for today I thought I’d try my hand at making some fun DIY Paper Peonies to play around with. Can I be honest? I don’t think they turned out exactly the way I had hoped, I was hoping for something a little more elegant but it was fun to get creative and try something new.
I’m joining some very talented friends as we all share different peony projects today from DIY floral arrangements to crafts. Scroll down to see them all!
DIY Paper Peonies
Even though they didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped, I think they added a fun twist to our entry way for spring and summer. A little eclectic mix.
What I hope you get out of this post is that 1) you just have to try something new and 2) you can take this idea and make it your own!
I think these flowers would be so pretty on top of packages, or add a few to the corner of a DIY Wood Sign.

Paper Flower Supplies
I cut out three large flowers and then arranged the cut outs from largest to smallest. Using a pencil as a guide, roll all of the petals toward the center to ruffle the edges.
Once you are done with all the layers, place a dab of hot glue in the center and glue each layer together. I rotated the petals so they weren’t all the exact same direction. You can also use glue dots too!
After I completed all three flowers, I thought they were a little plain, so I added a tan center to finish them off.
I grabbed some branches from the yard and hot glued the flowers to them for an organic look.
