Giant Paper Flowers Material:
- hot glue
To make your own paper flowers, all you need is some paper and a hot glue gun. You can use any paper to make them. For these we used regular white paper, craft paper, pink copy paper, scrap book paper, and some old book pages. You can easily make these to fit any colour scheme, so they’re great for decor, or for a special occasion.

Thank you so much. You make it look so easy and fun! I had always been afraid to do these but after watching your video I am more confident and will do this for a friend’s wedding. Thanks a lot
Thanks May, I love comments like this! I hope yours turn out amazing, happy wedding.
I really like the ideas and the clear way in which you explained how to do. Your site is very pretty.
Thank you for showing me again how to make them they are so fun to make but when I make them it turns out looking different to me. The last one I made looked like a flower pot with flowers in the middle Well I will try it again just watching you. Thanks again
Hi Constance, a couple tips for you. You might need to make them a little more full -so make more petals of each size, and also you might need to make the petal size difference more gradual. “Looked like a flower pot” sounds to me like maybe the outer petals were a lot taller than the next row, so maybe make your petal sizes get only slightly smaller for each row, down to the middle. Hope this helps, best of luck to you!
These giant paper flowers are fabulous! What a great and inexpensive way to decorate for a wedding shower, a birthday party or even a summer BBQ. Thanks so much for this post!
So glad you like them Lilian, thanks for the lovely comment.

What weight of paper is the best?
Hi Kathi, I’ve used everything from light weight vellum, to regular paper, to card stock and it all worked fine. I’d probably start with regular paper though. Best of luck,
