Adding flowers to the decor is not a new idea. But we bet that we are going to surprise you with ideas that are new, beautiful and capable of giving your home a unique charm.
There are always new ways to use any type of floral elements in your interior and for certain not only for the holidays.
Today we are going to reveal to you the best ideas for faux flowers, some made of paper, others taken from the stores and the best ways to include them in arrangements to create a point of interest inspired by the gentle beauty and bright colors inspired by nature.
1. Paper Purple Anemone Flowers
Anemone flowers are simple and that makes them a great DIY project. Nature shows them in colors varying from pink to purple to white.
This idea features a complete Anemone flower that can be inserted into a vase. The supplies you need are tissue paper in the desired color for the petals, masking tape for the base and floral stem.
If you like the gentle simplicity of these Anemone flowers, you can also include them in a floral arrangement on a wreath.

2. Newspaper Flowers with Nail Art Holder
This rustic plaque replicates the shapes of a Ball jar holding Anemone flowers. It is a very cute and easy art that is based on upcycling materials. Some string, pebbles or stones, newspaper or old book pages and floral wire are the supplies you need to create the image on a wooden board.
Use glue or a hot glue gun to attach each piece securely to the wood. The flowers are shaped by weaving a cut petal template around the stem.
3. Bright Silk Flower Table Centerpiece
This boxed table centerpiece has been created as a Spring decor with egg embellishments to make it festive for Easter. All faux plants have been taken from Ikea while the box has been made out of reclaimed wood.
The greatest about this project is that all flowers are used as they are-no cutting, gluing or amending to let them fit. Instead, they are poked down in the boxwood base. Thus you can use them in the future in another arrangement.
4. Felt Flower Headboard Garland
If you want to ensure more flexibility of your floral arrangement, choose the appropriate material that will allow it. Felt is perfect for that because it is soft, it creates a volumetric look of the parts and is flexible enough to get the desired shape. Added to floral wire makes the applications almost endless.
This idea features a garland which style reminds of a Boho romance. The flowers can be roses, magnolias, peonies- all enhancing the gentleness. The pastel color palette ensures that it can fit into the existing interior easily and either contrast with it to become an accent or complement it.
5. Embroidery Hoop Hanging Flower Display
This wreath lives you breathless with its design. The unique combination of hoops creates a dimensional decor accent that can be left dangling from the ceiling, from the window frame or from the pergola.
At the bottom of this symbolic sphere, flowers and greenery are inserted to embellish it and to turn it into a spring symphony welcomed indoors.
6. Paper Flower Note Board Embellishments
If you love the inspirational signs or just leaving cute messages to your family to remind them how much you love them, this board is a compact canvas for your notes.
It is covered in burlap and embellished with paper roses. Each rose has been rolled out of a newspaper sheet and its edges slightly burnt to look weathered.
The notes can be attached to a string crossing the canvas with the help of wooden clothespins. The rustic design of this note board can be the perfect addition to the kitchen, the living room or the entryway.
7. Easy Silk Rose Cluster
This centerpiece idea uses only the buds from faux flowers. The leaves and the stems are removed to let the arrangement be more compact and the rosebuds to be the focal point.
The peach color is very bright and makes the roses look more realistic. All buds are inserted into a foam circle. Its styrofoam finish is hidden by a ribbon imitating burlap. If you are happy with the design, you can customize this centerpiece and make it bigger and use roses in another color.
8. Romantic Heart Shaped Rose Wreath
This wreath celebrates spring and love. Made in the shape of a heart, the wireframe allows using any type of faux flowers to create the final wreath design.
The author has decided to use foam flowers because they look very realistic and are very durable. The wide ribbon on the top lets you fix it to the front door to give your home an instant curb appeal.
9. Sparkling Half Floral Wreath
The base of this wreath could be floral wire or a wire wreath already made. All of the flowers have been made out of tissue and crepe paper- supplies that make the paper flowers look so realistic.
Choosing from a wide variety of colors lets you experiment with the types of flowers to model. Once you are ready with your flower selection, attach them with pipe cleaners to one of the sides. Leave the other empty for embellishment with eucalyptus.
10. Simple Tonal Framed Roses
This idea has been created by a person thinking out of the box. While we are used to seeing flowers in a bouquet, in a vase, attached to a wreath, this project closes them in a frame to make them a piece of art.
Each flower is made out of paper. The effect of the finish is metallic which gives the flowers an interesting look. If you are keen on making your own framed floral art, you can experiment with the colors and the textures to make it suitable for your home interior.

11. Embellish A Simple Wood Frame
This wall art is lifted to another level by adding an initial for a personalized effect. Peonies from paper beautify one of the sides. Mixed with green leaves, the peonies pop out and invite you to check if they are actually real.
A few cones are tucked along the embellishment to let the floral arrangement match the wooden frame and initial stained in dark.
Such artwork will not only look amazing in the entryway, but it can also be used instead of a wreath on the front door and emphasize the importance of home and family.
12. Easy Silk Hanging Poms
Have you ever seen flower poms? These decorations are mostly used for wedding or party decor. But why should we take advantage of their bursting floral beauty only on one occasion?
Hanging them on your front porch or in the living room will make them bright and very inviting. Including floral motifs in your spring and summer decor is the best way to celebrate the warm weather.
13. Farmhouse Style Wooden Flower Heart

14. DIY Craft Paper Hydrangeas
If you love hydrangea you must be devastated how quickly their blossoms fade away. Here is an idea of how to enjoy their beauty for a longer time. Made them from paper! Thanks to the metallic finish of the craft paper, the flower blossoms look realistic and dimensional.
You can make the blossoms in any color, however, for a more realistic result stick to the colors nature shows them in. Depending on your craft idea, you can attach the blossoms to a stem and insert them into a vase or tuck them in a wreath arrangement.

The effect of the neutral paper with words written on it makes this paper flower unique and romantic. If you want to keep an old book that is precious to you or in case you prefer recycling than throwing it away, repurpose it into your new floral decor.
16. Pink Paper Rose Kissing Ball
Since kissing balls have become very trendy, the options for making them have also been extended. This image shows a kissing ball embellished with crepe paper flowers. Each one is carefully modeled so that the final flower looks identical to all of the rest.
The crepe paper roses can be glued onto a styrofoam ball. The finished kissing ball can be put on top of a candlestick. It can also be suspended from the ceiling if you attach a ribbon or a cord to it.
17. Festive Flower Embellished Menorah
This menorah can be used as a table centerpiece or a mantel decoration during spring and summer. Each flower is made from crepe paper. The bead in the center is with a golden finish to match the stand design.
The combination of colors additionally makes this craft unique- peach, yellow and blue are related to spring. Combined with golden, they look like an antique piece of art.
18. Silk Flower Wreath Nursery Mobile

Floral letters are a contemporary replacement of the wreath. You can find ready-made initials at the Dollar store or in a craft shop to use as a base for your customized floral decoration.
