Large Paper Flower Wall

I have been in love with the large paper flower wall idea for a long time.  It is colorful, whimsical and no two are ever alike.

Today I am going to share how to make a gorgeous paper flower wall compliments of Kojo Designs.

Since the wall-of-giant-crepe-paper-flowers-backdrop was the star of the show (and since you probably need a few of these as decor, or a party backdrop, or even a gift wrap accessory!), we thought we’d share the paper flower how to as well.

Crepe paper or tissue paper*

*Tissue paper isn’t readily available here and is much more expensive than crepe paper, so I use crepe paper. The differences I have seen are that crepe paper has more texture, but is trickier to fluff. Also, crepe paper comes in longer rolls, so if you use tissue paper for this project you will have to make two or three folded accordion pieces and combine them.

Cut crepe paper into three lengths, if you want a contrasting middle, the smallest size should be in a contrasting color.
