These DIY roses are the perfect way to bring flowers into your life without the challenge of keeping them alive. Keep reading for the full how-to for creating some for yourself!
This jumbo paper flower wedding backdrop is an eye-catching wall covering for your wedding celebration. Use it as a backdrop to your wedding photographs, to frame your top table, or to decorate the entrance of your wedding venue! It is a simple flower to make despite it’s size! The trick is to use our jumbo flower pattern printed on Smooth Wallpaper from Spoonflower. Each roll comes with two flowers on it, so all you need to do is cut out the pattern and assemble each flower by following the simple video tutorial below by Lia Griffith.
Each flower petal has a delicate watercolor wash on it to easily blend in with any wedding colors. The paper is durable so it is easy to work with and will last you for years should you want to re-house your backdrop at home!
