6 Favourite Diy Flower Tutorials.

6 Favourite Diy Flower Tutorials
Now the clocks have gone forward it's really starting to feel like Spring around here. It's one of my favourite times of year. I love the pretty blossom, the lighter evenings and the flowers that start popping up everywhere. I've rounded up 6 of my favourite Diy Flower Tutorials to share with you. Pretty paper flowers that never need watering and last forever so we can enjoy Spring all year round.

(clockwise from top left)
1. Gorgeous Diy Felt Ranunculus from Something Turquoise.

2. I love these Diy Giant Crepe Paper Roses from Studio Diy.

3. How great are these Diy Gerbera Daisies from Lia Griffith? It's hard to believe they're made from paper.

4. Teeny tiny Crepe Paper Flowers from Oh Happy Day. Use them as party favours for a wedding or a baby shower or even as dainty cupcake toppers.

5. You can make all these brightly coloured paper flowers using only paper punches. How great is that? I think the red anemone is my favourite. Head on over to Damask Love to find out how to make these Easy Paper Punch for yourself.

6. Nothing says spring quite like a daffodil and I love this crepe paper version from Lia Griffith. They look nice and easy to make as well so that's a bonus.

Happy flower making.

Lovely Links 11.

Lovely Links 11
This photo is from a few weeks ago but I'm hoping for more blue skies this weekend even though it's meant to be grey and cloudy.

Here's a few lovely links from around the web that have brightened my week and will hopefully brighten yours.

Stunning origami inspired wallpaper.

Some sweet treats. Hazelnut and vanilla crumble with peaches and blueberries // Peanut butter bacon and dark chocolate cookies // Mini german pancakes dusted with powdered sugar and filled with strawberry lavender jam.

A mesmerising video on the meditation of ceramics that I could watch again and again.

I'm in love with these watercolour and Japanese paper mixed media pieces from Lisa Krannichfeld.

Excited for this book and this one.

Fantastic desktop downloads from Leah Goren. Loving the potted plants.

A few of my favourite pins. This quote //10 Pretty Diy Painted Pots // Giant Paper Flowers // This outfit // This space // And this collection of hand lettering.

Some thoughts on change from Jeanette Winterson.

'When we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as the result of having made the wrong decision. Our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and some days we could tight-rope across Manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth. This is normal. This is natural. This is change.' Jeanette Winterson, 2002.

Have a wonderful weekend everybody.
