DIY Dogwood Flowers

These are my dogwood flowers. I got branches that were just budding (for the realistic texture) cut some petals out of white printing paper, glued them to the stems!!!

I used an egg carton box to secure the branches in my container. Another idea would be to use a clay type product to stick them in with.... or foam. :)

These are examples of branches I use... if you get them just when they are budding you will have branches that look really life like (as in still alive) and they will last you for a long time. Just don't cut them too late or the budding leaves will dry & fall off.

Simple but gorgeous!


  1. I'm particularly keen on doing this myself. Thanks for great suggestion.

  2. Ready to start decorating my house with paper flowers! Thank you for your brilliant tutorial!
