This is a ribbon tulip flower idea. It’s very simply and beautiful .
About tulip :
The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, of which around 75 wild species are currently accepted[1] and which belongs to the family Liliaceae.[2] The genus’s native range extends west to the Iberian Peninsula, through North Africa to Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, throughout the Levant (Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan) and Iran, North to Ukraine, southern Siberia and Mongolia, and east to the Northwest of China.[1] The tulip’s centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains.[3] It is a typical element of steppe and winter-rain Mediterranean vegetation. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, as potted plants, or as cut flowers.




Beyond Spring: 15 Flower Arrangements That Will Inspire Your Own DIY Bouquets

Buying flowers for your family and friends is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or even just to make them feel special on a normal day. Sometimes it’s just nice to have flowers around the house for yourself! However, unless you visit a boutique florist or pay additional prices, the arrangement of your flowers might not be as pretty or fancy as you had in mind. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, however, then that’s no problem at all!

Check out these 15 easy DIY flower arrangement inspirations that will have you reorganizing and rearranging your next bouquet for the better the second it’s in your hands!

1. DIY submerged flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY submerged flowers

Sometimes buying yourself just a few little blossoms is a great way to brighten up your space and your day. If you like pretty, unconventional things, you need to see Momtastic‘s submerged flower idea! Choose glasses that are the right size for each flower you bought and follow the instructions to weight each one down with flat crafting marbles.

2. Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

If you have a beautiful, wide stand that you want to turn into an arrangement but that doesn’t hold flowers in place well, all is not lost! Your local crafting store will have foam cubes design specifically for arranging flowers. Put on in the centre of the stand and poke the end of the flower stems into it. Arrange them all the way around until the foam no longer shows and voila!

3. Teapot flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRefreshing Teapot flowers

Rather than using a traditional vase to hold your flowers, why not make things look a little more vintage? Placing your blossoms in a teapot is one of the easiest ways to get that look! We love these little yellow flowers in a stark white teapot on Pinterest.

4. Glass bottles and scrapbooking paper

VIEW IN GALLERYGlass bottles and scrapbooking paper

Sometimes the vase is just as cute as the flowers, especially if you make it yourself! Find a clean, empty glass bottle that fits a few stems through the opening and neck. Before you put the flowers in, cut a strip of pretty patterned scrapbooking paper and tape it in place with washi tape. Tie it around the middle with a piece of jute string or twine for detail and pop your blossoms in the top. Check out how Decor 8 made these pretty little bottles!

5. Rainbow water and white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRainbow water and white flowers

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the room but your favourite flowers are simple white ones, you can still incorporate colour in how you display them! We absolutely adore the idea of adding a little bit of food colouring gel to water in a clear glass vase and popping simple white flowers in the top, just like Paper and Cakery did!

6. Foam ball flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFoam ball flowers

We didn’t realize until we saw this arrangement on Pinterest how pretty it can look to have no vase or container at all! Instead, try sticking the end of each stem into a foam sphere from the craft store so you create a small floral dome that’ll look perfect in the centre of your dinner table!

7. Citrus vase


This floral decor from Pinterest just screams “summer” to us! For a little extra scent on top of the flowers, fill a mason jar with halved lemons and limes and plant your flowers in the middle. Besides smelling great, the arrangement is totally gorgeous!

8. A standing bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYA standing bouquet

If you’ve chosen flowers with very stiff stems then all you need is a ribbon and a wide glass to make this adorable standing arrangement. Tie the flowers near the very bottom of the blooms and spread the stems out so the bottoms are wide enough to support the flowers on all sides and keep them standing, just like this cute bouquet from Pinterest.

9. Cocktail flower

VIEW IN GALLERYCocktail flower

We love the stylish appearance of this adorably simple arrangement on Style Me Pretty! Trim the stem close to the flower’s head so it’s short enough to fit in the shallow cup and let it stick out the top like a decorative cocktail drink.

10. Flower monograms

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower monograms

This particular craft from Parcel Post is actually made with silk flowers, but we think it would be absolutely beautiful with real blooms for a special occasions! Find hollow chunky letters, use hot glue to fill them with green plant foam, and stick the flower stems in the foam so they fill up the letters completely.

11. Candy arrangement

VIEW IN GALLERYColorful Candy arrangement

We love this idea from Pinterest for Easter or kids’ birthdays in the springtime! Find a clear vase, fill it with colourful jelly beans, and plant the stems of your flowers right in the centre.

12. Spray painted mason jar planters

VIEW IN GALLERYSpray painted mason jar planters

Whether you choose to include the little bunny rabbit silhouette or whether you prefer solid colours, this spray painted jar idea makes for a cheerful and stylish arrangement. Check out how it’s done on The CSI Project!

13. Teacup flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYBeautiful Teacup flowers

You might think tulips and patterned teacups would make a very busy looking combination, but we’re in love with the look! Check out how Slim Paley added a vintage flair this way by placing purple tulips into teacups of contrasting colours!

14. Chalkboard message herb gardens


Painting a few simple planting pots with chalkboard paint is an easy way to customize your own display. Label them with the types of herbs planted, write inspirational quotes that you’d like to see all day, or give them to someone as a gift with a loving message message on them like these ones from Pinterest!

15. Upcycled graphic tin can planters

VIEW IN GALLERYGraphic tin can planters

This great tutorial by Home Talk shows you how to create adorable vintage looking planters simply by pasting images you like onto large tin cans. We love the homey effect such a simple arrangement gives the entire room, as thought you picked the flowers straight from the garden outside and grabbed the nearest tin to display their beauty!



15 Flower Crown Designs That Will Inspire You to Make Your Own

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer wedding, planning your looks for your next music festival in the sun, or you’re just really in love with the style, flower crowns are a gorgeous trend. Because they’re hot right now you can find them in most accessory stores, but you already know we’re big fans of making things ourselves! Your flower crown might be made of material and silk flowers or you might go all out and use fresh flowers and green leaves.

Check out these 15 inspiration shots of differently styled flower crowns to get your creative senses buzzing. Whether you’re gluing the blossoms to a hairband or wrapping fresh sprigs to a ribbon with crafting wire, your flower crown will look just as gorgeous as any of these!

1. Deep pink roses and berry pink lips

VIEW IN GALLERYDeep pink roses and berry pink lips

(Photo by Kelsea Holder)

One of the best ways to incorporate your flower crown into your look, particularly if your outfit is monochromatic, is to match the blossoms to your lipstick. A deep pink flower looks beautiful with a berry coloured pout!

2. Dusty orange blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYDusty orange blossoms

(Photo by We Heart It)

Very lightly coloured flowers, like this soft, dusty orange are perfect for a whimsical summer look. Try weaving long hair up into the back of the hairband you’ve built your flower crown on for a bohemian princess effect.

3. Green ivy with white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYGreen Iivy with white flowers

(Photo by Feather and Stone)

If you’re looking for a slightly more unconventional flower crown, this one’s for you! Simple white blossoms make it look whimsical and feminine, but the larger incorporation of green ivy sets this style apart form other ones and makes it look more understated and natural.

4. Small flowers and a hair braid

VIEW IN GALLERYSmall flowers and a hair braid

(Photo by Lindsey Shaun)

Speaking of understated but gorgeous looks, this style that incorporates tiny blossoms and baby’s breath makes a different kind of flower crown all together. Instead of gluing or wiring flowers to a hairband, use a braid as the “crown” and work the flowers and sprigs directly into the hair.

5. Loose baby’s breath

VIEW IN GALLERYLoose baby's breath

(Photo by Rebekah Westover)

Do you love the way that the baby’s breath in the previous picture looks so much that you wish for more? Instead of using it as solely an accent flower in your flower crown, try making it the centre of attention!

6. Thistles with white blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYGreens with few blossoms

(Photo by Ciara Richardson)

Here’s another one for your unconventional flower crown category! Making it with thistles gives a stronger, less whimsical look but adding a few white blossoms among the purple blooms keeps things soft enough for a wedding or special event.

7. Silk butterfly crown

VIEW IN GALLERYSilk butterfly crown

Okay, so technically this look isn’t a flower crown, but it reminded us so much of the same whimsical looks that flower crowns often achieve. Shake things up a bit by building a crown out of material or silk butterflies the way you’d normally use flowers.

8. Blossoms and lace

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms and lace

(Photo by Maria Mack)

If you’re looking for an even prettier look than a flower crown is already going to give you by default, try combining your flowers with lace! Let the lace run along your hairline or rest lightly against your forehead for a lovely, intricate look.

9. Matching the bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYMatching the bouquet

(Photo by Julie Siddi)

If you’re creating a flower crown specifically for a wedding, then one of the best ways of incorporating it into the look is to match it with the bouquet. The balance between the two bunches of flowers looks absolutely beautiful in pictures!

10. Flower crown tucked under

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower crown tucked under

(Photo by Delbarr Moradi)

Just because it’s called a flower “crown” doesn’t mean you have to wear it like a tiara! Try nestling your blossoms underneath your updo so the bun rests lightly on top of them instead. The look is unique but still classic enough for timeless pictures.

11. Blossoms with herbs

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms with herbs

(Photo by Michelle Boyd)

Many flowers together can be a little overwhelming looking, especially if you have slight features. In order to get that same volume in your crown without letting it take over your look, consider weaving in some herb plants instead of big floral leaves.

12. Cascading flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYCascading flowers

(Photo by MW Foto)

Why not consider some pretty asymmetry in your look? Letting a few flowers hang down on one sides looks beautiful, especially with some more voluminous gathered blossoms to balance the look out on the other side.

13. Pink cherry blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYPink cherry blossoms

(Photo by Serenity Crystal)

A simple ring of pink cherry blossoms is the perfect look for a summer music festival. It’s pretty, but it’s low maintenance and easy to make. It also won’t distract from the outfit you’ve put together!

14. Fluffy white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFluffy white flowers

(Photo by Laura Murray)

Sometimes big is the way to go! Large, fluffy flowers look beautiful with hair that has some volume but not enough to battle with the flowers for space. Choosing white ones looks very clean and well put together.

15. Asymmetrical berries and blooms

VIEW IN GALLERYAsymmetrical berries and blooms

If your motto is “go big or go home”, then you might be looking for a little something more than simple flowers. Adding berries to a huge blossom is a great way to mix colours and draw the eye to your face.

These pumpkin seed flowers are cute and beautiful, they are nice home decoration . I have never know about making a flower using pumpkin seeds , this is a very creative idea, and it’s very simple .
For making pumpkin seed flowers, first cut discs of card sheet, then glue the pumpkin seeds in concentric circles with the help of a hot glue gun , don’t forget to leave a circle empty in the center for the seeds to come. Then spread some hot glue over the center and quickly put peppercorns in mixed colors over it and wait for it dried ( I would like to put a family picture in the center ) . You can make a loop of ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the flower for hanging. That’s all ! Be sure make as many as you like and hang them on your wreath or garland. Enjoy ~~

Twine is a wonderfully versatile craft material that you can use to hang mobiles, string ornaments, wrap vases and bottles, tie packages, make banners, and form pompoms – and these are just a few of its countless uses.
If you already own a Bow and flower maker tool, then you probably already tried making twine flowers. But in fact, for these little cuties, you don’t really need a special tool.
Making twine flowers is something you can do with older children, those who are already quite dexterous and able to sit down for long periods. If you think the process may be too tedious for the kiddos, set up the cardboard-and-pin guides beforehand and immediately engage them in looping the twine.
Use these twine flowers as gift or loot bag toppers, greeting card accents, scrapbook embellishments, and party decor. Make several to form wreaths, table arrangements, and wall art. The possibilities are endless!

Materials you will need :
Twine (jute or cotton)
Cardboard (you can also use old boxes, illustration board, Styrofoam, etc.)
Multicolor pins
Craft needle
String (you can also use ribbon, cord, a strip of fabric, etc.)

Simple DIY Wedding Favour Ideas

Giving your wedding guests a small favour as a “thank you” for sharing your special day has become a tradition, and frankly, it might be our very favourite wedding tradition of all! We love the idea of creating little DIY gifties that your guests wouldn’t think to make themselves or receive anywhere else, especially if you make things that are custom to your event. Just because you’re making your own favours, however, doesn’t mean you have to get very complicated with your ideas.

Check out these 15 simple but totally unique wedding favour ideas that your guests will actually enjoy using!

1. Personalized DIY lip balm

Sure, you could buy all your friends pre-made lip balms and simply change the labels on them to suit your wedding date, but making things yourself is always more fun! This recipe is all natural and uses gentle essential oils to make it smell lovely as well. When you’re finished the balms, you can still make yourself a custom label too! Check it all out on Apple Brides.

A Subtle Revelry shows you how to make them.

3. Customized local honey jars

Sometimes the best wedding favours are all natural things that come from the local area specifically, especially if you know many of your guests traveled from miles out of town to be there. Visitors will appreciate their own little jar of sweet local honey, especially if you’ve customized a stylish label especially for the occasion. See how Apple Brides created these ones!

Fun Ways to Upcycle Flip Flops

Flip flop sandals are one of our very favourite footwear options all throughout the summer, but if you tend to buy the cheaper ones like we do, then you know how fast they can wear out. For example, we often find that the toe straps on ours break from being walks in so much. Even if you don’t wear yours out, it’s easy to become weary of the style after a while, or simply to accumulate way too many pairs of flip flops all together.

That’s where your upcycling and repurposing skills come in handy! It’s amazing how versatile the bottom of a flip flop sandal can be when it comes to making yourself new, alternative, and homemade footwear options for the summer, which are always our favourite kind of course! Check out these 15 awesome ideas involving upcycled flip flops!

1. Wrapping fabric strap sandals


This style of sandal is particularly easy to make because the holes from the original plastic toe straps are already there, ready and waiting for you to string your strips of fabric through! Choose a colour or pattern of material from your scraps bin, or perhaps the discount ends bin at your local fabric shop, and follow the guide on Inspired Life to see how these adorable sandals are threaded and wrapped!

2. Stretch fabric slip-ons and fabric flowers


Do you love the idea of replacing the original plastic toe straps with nice fabric ones but a wrap-and-tie style might annoy you and you’d rather some sandals that you can easily slide on and off? Then check out this stretch strap design from Make It, Love It! We love their tutorial because it doesn’t just show you how to make the straps; it also shows you how to embellish them with an adorable fabric flower in a pretty contrasting material.

3. Beaded and pearl flip flops


Perhaps your flip flops are actually still in tact and also in quite good condition, but you’re simply bored of them or they’re just not quite fancy enough for you as they currently are? Then grab some pretty pearled beads and some ribbon and check out this look from  Buzzfeed! You’ll use the ribbon to weave a toe panel that the beads can be sewn onto.

4. Braided toe sandals


Are you still very into the material and fabric sandal strap ideas but you haven’t quite seen one yet that’s really caught your eye? Then perhaps a little bit of simple braiding will do the trick for you! We love the way this idea from Trellian looks, especially because the technique is very simple even though the braids look quite intricate in the end.

5. Disc sequin sandals


Did you like the design and construction aspects of the pearled sandals but you’re not entirely sure that pearl beads are really the aesthetic for you? Then perhaps you’d prefer awesomely shiny disc sequins instead! This tutorial from Trinkets in Bloom takes you through a similar ribbon wrapping and weaving technique to the one above, but instead of sewing on beads you’ll carefully layer sequinned discs so they sit flat and catch the sun.

6. Crocheted summer shoes


Are you a crochet enthusiast who loves combining your DIY skills to make things you’ll really love and actually use? Then check out the pattern for these fantastically adorable crocheted summer shoes! You’ll begin by threading the yarn in your first stitches through periodic holes in the foam and then building upwards. See how it’s done in more detail on The Spinner’s Husband.

7. Flip flop flats with buttons


Do you love the idea of crocheted summer shoes but you’re just not quite feeling the style of the ones we described above, or perhaps you’re feeling up to more of a challenge in your construction of the shoes? Then check out this adorable buttoned alternative by A Crafty Cook! They look like a cute little pair of Mary Janes, only handmade.

8. Floral flip flops


Do you like the idea of working with fabric to make your flip flops a little fancier, but you’d actually rather keep the plastic toe straps because you like the structure they provide your foot? Then use fabric to build on top of those straps instead! This design featured on Pinterest suggests creating little fabric rosettes that look adorable bunched all along the strap.

9. Bead and embroidery braid flip flops


Have you always been into bracelet weaving and embroidery and now you’d like to add some sparkle to your sandals without having to resort to glues and messy looking adhesives? Then merge your skills and follow this tutorial on Stylish Wife! They guide you through the process of tying around the base of the gems on a rhinestone chain and through the back of a pretty gem stoned charm so that they pieces are woven right onto the straps of your sandals. If you’re careful and weave tightly, there’s almost no chance of the pretty stones falling off even if you wear the sandals all summer!

10. Silk ribbon and bow flip flops


We’ve talked a lot about weaving and wrapping using ribbons, but each technique we’ve described has only used this as a base rather than leaving it as the final aesthetic. Perhaps you love ribbons more than more other DIY embellishments, however, and would rather stop at that? Then we think this ribbon wrapping and bow design from Pinterest is the one for you!

11. Beaded chain flip flops


Were you intrigued by the rhinestone chain idea were outlined when we talked about embroidery above but you’d rather a more natural, sort of Boho chic look than shiny stones? Then check out these awesome dangling bead chains sewn into the plastic toe straps of a simple pair of flip flops! DIY Enthusiasts shows you how it’s done in just a few easy steps.

12. Duct tape decorated flip flops


Washi tape and patterned duct tape are at the height of fashion when it comes to DIY projects and trends right now. They’re easy to work with and they come in so many fancy colours and designs now that they’re practically a statement already, no matter how you use them! That’s why we loved these tape wrapped flip flops with a fringed flower design at the toe. See how it’s done on Crafty Sisters.

13. Beaded strap flip flops


Have you been intrigued so far by the beaded ideas we’ve talked about all throughout this list but we just haven’t quite found the one that really keeps your attention yet? Then consider this design made with a more classic type of beading instead! DIY Fashion shows you how to affix them by threading them onto the top of the strap with plastic jewelry floss.

14. Ruffled T-strap sandals


Are you totally open to keeping the flip flop style of sandal but you’d like to change the shape of the strap, rather than the whole construction itself? Then check out how Make It, Love It swapped the classic split shape for a T-strap instead! As if that wasn’t quite fun enough, they also go into detail about how you can make a cute ruffle all the way down the top of your foot to your toes.

15. Sequinned straps with little flowers


Perhaps you’re actually fine with leaving your sandals the way they are in terms of shape and construction, but you’d really like to liven them up just a little bit? Then adding a little bit of sequinned sparkle might be the only trick you need to make them more your style! Check out how Wedding Bee used sequinned trimmings and a little rosette to liven up their plain flip flops.



Color and Creativity: Crafts made from Foam Paper

No matter how old we get or how many advanced and unique crafting techniques we learn, we always love going back to the basics. Crafting with paper, for example, is one of our favourite pass times when we want to take it easy. That doesn’t mean, however, that what we make from paper isn’t fun or creative, especially when it comes to different kinds of paper! One of our very favourite kinds of paper to work with is foam paper.

Its god structure and texture that lets you create things with more strength that you just can’t get when you work with regular paper. It’s also a huge plus that foam paper is easy and fun enough to do with your kids! Check out these awesome DIY foam paper projects that will be a total blast to make on any crafting afternoon.

1. Blooming tree


Have you every tried layering foam paper shapes on top of each other? If you ask us, it’s one of the best ways to use foam because it creates a picture so visual that it almost looks like it’s leaping from the page… because it kind of is! The way the layers raise adds dimension. That’s why we love this flowered tree idea from Home Suggestions so much!

2. Glitter foam pencil holders


How could we possibly forget to mention that foam paper comes in a glittered version too? That’s one of the best things about it! We love using sparkly foam paper to add a little bit of pizzazz to simple projects, just like Saranya Jo did here with some very eye catching pencil holders. They’re practical and flashy!

3. Woven alligator


Just in case you’re looking for yet another plus side to crafting with foam paper, here’s a project to prove how strong it is too! The way it can be bend without tripping makes it very versatile to work with. This adorable alligator craft featured on Pinterest is a perfect example of how great foam paper is for weaving. Add some cute googly eyes and voila!

4. Train pictures


Did you love the idea of cutting out foam shapes and layering them so they really jump from the page, but you’d like an idea that’s a little simpler than the floral tree because you’d like your kids to be able to do it with you? Then we think you’ll prefer these adorable trains from Amazing Action Alphabet! The technique is the same, but these are like a starter version for little ones.

5. Foam owl family


Perhaps you’re in the opposite situation than we just listed above and you’d actually like something even more detailed to make than flowers and trees when it comes to layering foam paper shapes? Then use these adorable, colourful owls from Pinterest as inspiration! It’ll take a little bit of planning out to make sure the colours layer the way you’d like them to, but we believe in you.

6. Foam paper orchid


Many of the foam paper crafts we’ve shown you so far have been rather cartoonish, but perhaps you’re looking for something a little more delicate and realistic looking? Then this absolutely stunning orchid flower from Guide Central is definitely worth checking out. We think you’ll be surprised at how simple it is despite how lifelike it looks.

7. Foam paper gift bow


Have you always loved making your own gift bows so that your colour scheme with the gift paper you chose always matches, but you’re never satisfied how stiff regular paper bows turn out? Well, according to Fab DIY, foam paper is your answer! Using foam gives the bow a little more bounce and makes it less likely to rip as you bend the “ribbon” pieces into place.

8. Foam Easter egg magnets


Since Easter weekend is just around the corner, here’s a super fun seasonal craft for you! Foam paper comes in so many bright colours that it’s hard to resist using it to make something fun and cheerful looking like Easter eggs. At least this way your kids wont spill egg dye all over the kitchen table! See the idea in more detail on Oriental Trading.

9. Foam monster feet


If you ask us, the best kind of kids’ craft is the kind where your kids are entertained while they’re making them, but they’re also entertained afterwards because they can play with what they’ve made! We’ve actually made these hilarious foam monster feet with our kids in real life and we can guarantee you that they’ll provide hours, days, or maybe even weeks of fun. We have Babble to thank for this idea!

10. Foam flower wreath


Did you love the floral tree idea we talked about before so much that you’re tempted to make other floral decorative pieces from the bright foam, but you’re stumped for ideas? Luckily for all of us, Live Craft Love is here to help! This door wreath is made using the same techniques but built around a circle in layers rather than in a scattered manner like you saw previously.

11. Foam flower bouquet


Okay, we admit that we’re talking a lot about foam flowers, but who could blame us when they’re this pretty? Here’s another structured flower craft for you, just in case you loved the orchid idea but would prefer a shock of colour that contrasts brightly with your existing décor! Plum Perfect and Me guides you through the process of making a bouquet of your very own.

12. Foam paper purse


Did you know that you can actually use foam to make both practical things and fashion statements? Okay, okay; so maybe we wouldn’t actually wear a purse made of foam in real life. Foam is strong, but it can only take so much adult wear and tear! When it comes to playing pretend, however, a foam purse is the perfect thing to make for your kids for when they play house. We’re almost jealous! See how these neat accessories are made in more detail on Crafting in the Rain.

13. Foam fairy wand


When we were kids, our very favourite fairy wands (yes, we had many) were always the ones we made ourselves or with our friends or parents, rather than the ones we got from the store. There’s just something a little extra magical about creative your own sparkly wand in whatever shape you like! We love the way The Craft Train embellished theirs with pearls, gems, and ribbons!
