DIY No-Sew Easy Plush Paper Flowers -

These Plush Flowers, believe it or not; are made from paper napkins and super quick to make too! They are a variation on my plush fabric flowers that I shared here. Don't they just look so cute?!

AND they do not require any sewing, nor a lot of time - The idea came to me when styling our recent Easter Garden Party. I really wanted to use pastel colored plush flowers, but did not have the time nor disposition to get out my sewing kit, and wondered if the technique would work with paper. Well, it did - Just proves again how necessity (or laziness) really is the mother of all invention! ;)

Get the full step-by-step below...

TUTORIAL: No-Sew, Express Plush Paper Flowers Made from Paper Napkins

No-Sew, Express Plush Paper Flowers Made from Paper Napkins

Materials Needed:

* Colored, 2-Ply, Square Paper Napkins 
* White, 2-Ply, Square Paper Napkins

Please Note:

You do really need at least 2-Ply (double fold)  napkins as this is the right thickness. Any thinner the paper will rip! The size of your napkins will dictate the size of the finished flower head. I used approx. 20 cm napkins.

* White Floral tape ( from most garden centers, craft stores or florists)
* Dowel rod for stem
* Green crepe paper for covering stem
* Craft glue
* Hot glue
* Poly fiber fill - From haberdashers or fabric stores (used to stuff cushions or plush toys) 

DIY No-Sew Easy Plush Paper Flowers -


1) Take a colored napkin and fill with the poly fiber fill.

2) Form into a ball of about 2 inch (5 cm) in diameter. 

3) Using the floral tape, seal the ends tightly. Repeat to get 5 balls altogether.

4) Trim the ends of each ball just below the floral tape.

5) Repeat steps 1 to 4 above, this time using white napkins for the flower centers. Make 2 white balls as previously, then hot glue the white balls end to end a shown. Keep it pressed until dry - Only takes a minute or so.

6) Hot glue each colored ball in the gaps between the white balls to form the flower "head" - Excuse the unpolished manicure or lack thereof...

7) Wrap the dowel rod in green crepe paper and seal with craft glue to form the "stem". Just before gluing your last colored ball onto the flower "head" insert and hot glue the green stem. Finish gluing the last ball. Squeeze the flower head tightly with both hands to ensure a snug fit and until all the parts are dry.

Once you get the technique, you'll find you can make one of these in minutes! ;)

I displayed mine inside a clay flower pot, inserted into a block of floral foam and covered with fake grass.
