I absolutely LOVE sunflowers and love this craft.

It’s perfect to add a neutral early fall touch to your decor, but packs a punch by being 3 dimentional.

I used a few in baby girl’s room with some tissue paper puffs leftover from her first birthday party!

Lorelai’s room has been going through a transformation, again.

I’ve moved the bed three different times, hung and rehung artwork, and changed the placement of the tissue paper puffs that were originally decoration for her first birthday party.

I pinned this photo months ago planning to add these flowers to the tissue paper puffs that were on the wall above her bed…

I saved paper bags over and over the last few months, only to put them in the recycle bin or in the compost.

The other day I came home from Trader Joes with a bunch of paper bags and decided I needed to finally make the flowers.

Here is the awesome tutorial from A Place for Us.

I got to work on them Sunday morning. The tutorial was easy to follow and the results turned out perfect!

I secretly wish this room was mine. I love the handmade flowers and vintage goodness in her room.
