Paper_Garland_Spring_Flowers

There’s nothing like brightly colored flowers to create that happy spring time feeling in the air. If keeping fresh flowers indoors is more of a hassle than you are prepared to deal with, then give this lovely faux flower garland a try.

Of course this will take an initial time investment to cut out all the shapes and assemble, but once they are put together you can enjoy them for weeks on end. If you get tired of them after awhile, it makes a great gift for someone else to enjoy! Free-cycling with friends is the best!

Use these in your home for a fresh pop of color, or for a special event like a birthday, bridal shower, or even a wedding reception. Of course the benefit here is that you can make these well in advance without worrying about them dying on you! It’s a great way to create decor that ties into an event’s color scheme, and they are a lot more sophisticated than your standard dollar store streamers.

What a super activity to do with a group of friends while sitting around and drinking tea, or wine — whichever you fancy.

This lovely garland was designed by the one and only Lia Griffith. You can grab the free templates to cut by hand or with your digital paper cutting machine, and the full how-to over on her blog.

Happy paper crafting!
