Decorate A Dorm Door

Currently Listening To: Dangerous by Big Data

My love for flowers is endless which makes decorating for spring as easy as rain in April. I wanted to make something that was a little bit more interesting and less obvious than flowers growing from the grass, here is what I came up with.

First grab a magazine with colorful pictures in it. I used a recent Anthroplogie catalogue which was perfect because the pictures had color, texture, and patterns in them. Then draw the shape of your flower petal on a piece of thick paper and cut it out. Place the petal template over a interesting part of an image and trace.

Cut and repeat untill you have a nice stack of petals. Next you need to cut out a circle for the center of the flower. You can do this with more images from your magazine or with a solid colored piece of construction/card stock paper. I used drawing paper and traced a few circles using anything circular I could find around my room.


Since I take every opportunity to use my watercolor set, I painted in my circles with colors that reflected the colors in my petals.

Then… glue glue glue! Soon enough you have beautiful and unique flowers to brighten up your space.


Happy Spring!
