Last year, I saw this mantel from A Place for Us on Pinterest and the Nate Berkus show, and I knew I wanted a mantle similar to it.
Once I made the flowers, I realized I made mine slightly different than how A Place for Us did it. I like their flowers better, but here's my lazy girl's way to make paper flowers.
2. Fold the paper in half.
3. Fold the paper in half again.
4. Fold diagonally.
6. Open it up and fold each leaf in half.
7. Make 5 to 7 flowers in different sizes. You don't have to worry about each flower being perfect. These paper flowers are very forgiving.
8. Layer the flowers from biggest to smallest. Put dot of glue in the center and just keep adding flowers until it looks right to you.
Last, I put some blue painters tape (so it would pull the paint) and attached it to my wall.
Here is the finished product....
That is my phone in the mirror. I was crouched down trying not to be in the picture.
It's almost a little too much, but I love enjoying my scales. The mirror, pumpkins, and vase came from Goodwill.
