Transform paper plates into beautiful flowers
Paper plates -> beautiful flowers! This easy DIY project will turn paper plates into adorable and sophisticated decorations for a Spring party, bridal party or wedding! This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Muslin & Merlot.

Materials

For this project, you will need:
-- Paper plates
-- Scissors
-- Craft glue or a hot-glue gun and glue sticks
-- Craft paint
-- Twine
-- Large marker (to curl the paper plates)
-- X-acto knife
You can find all of these items at a craft store.

Cut the flower base

Fold the paper plate into a small triangle, as shown in the picture above. Then, cut the paper plate along the black dotted line shown in the picture above. Use the marker to curl the petals of the flower.

Cut smaller flowers

Repeat the previous steps, just smaller for three smaller flowers. Make sure to save the edges of the plates that you cut off.

Attach the petals together

Use the X-acto knife to cut a hole in the middle of the flowers stacked on top of each other. String twine through the center hole and tie a few knots. Then, take the excess plate edges and cut them into fringes. Then, curl them around each other so that they form a fringed center for the flower.

Assemble the flower

Use the hot-glue gun to glue the fringed center to the flower petals. Also, add some glue in between the flower petals to make the flower more sturdy. If you would like, you can add some paint to give your flowers some color.

Set these beautiful flowers out as decorations and enjoy!
