Baby crafts: Making a wreath for the nursery!

NurseryPaperFlowerWreath

Posting a tutorial on my first baby craft for the nursery… I repurposed some of the left over paper handmade flowers from my wedding for a wreath! I had a ton left over since we used them for table arrangements and mini bouquets instead of real flowers… The paper flowers were originally made by etsy seller "TheCustomCouple" who do amazing work!! My flowers are over a year old now and still look brand new and lovely. I'm so glad I've held onto them in hopes of reusing them for a future craft! The color I purchased from them is "dark pink" and it's a pretty shade that isn't too soft or "hot pink".

If you'd like to try making your own paper flowers vs buying them, there are a lot of tutorials out there but I haven't tried myself so I can't personally recommend one for being the best… This Martha Stewart tutorial looks pretty good though! If you do make them yourself, be sure to put wire inside the flower stems so they will stay bent after you position them on the wreath base!
