DIY Paper Peony Bouquet


‘Tis the season for peonies, everyone. I’m so in love with these blooms and how they just scream springtime. You can never go wrong with a perfectly plump peony bouquet, and I’m so glad Rachael from Appetite Paper is showing us how to DIY a handful of paper peonies to make a beautiful bouquet that could really rival the real thing!

Materials you need:

Floral wire (16G)
Floral tape
Hot glue gun
Glue sticks
Rubber bands
Lambs ear leaf spray
Seeded eucalyptus

Crepe paper colors used:

Sweet Pea
Baby Pink

DIY Paper Peony Bouquet

Start by cutting out your peony centers, petals, and base from your pink crepe paper. Fringe your centers and roll onto the end of your floral wire. Adhere your large and medium petals around the center using hot glue. Lastly, adhere your 8 small petals upside down to the base of your flower. Fluff your paper peony by gently bending your petals towards the floor, or leave as is for a tighter bloom! Use your sweet pea and baby pink crepe papers to create a total of 9 paper pom peonies.

Once your paper peonies are prepped and assembled, group them together and secure the stems with a rubber band. Trim down the bouquet stems to your preferred size. Here, we have them at 8″, but feel free to accommodate the stem size to the container you may want to put them in.

Place your lambs ear leaf spray between your paper peonies, securing the greenery stems with a rubber band. Trim the stems for a nice even edge.

Next add in your eucalyptus. Here we used seeded eucalyptus and preserved eucalyptus. Nestle them throughout and around the outside of the bouquet. Secure the eucalyptus stems with a rubber band and trim.

If you prefer a large bouquet handle, here is a little trick! Tuck the left over greenery stems around the outside of your base and secure with rubber band.

Finish your bouquet with a few long elegant ribbons. (This lovely addition also cleverly hides all of the rubber bands used.) Here we used various widths of blush silk ribbon from Silk & Willow for a billowing romantic bouquet.
