DIY origami flower instructions

Looking for DIY decoration ideas? We highly recommend origami. As a matter of fact, we love origami! Origami is fantastic because it requires very few supplies and it relaxes your mind. You can use a sheet of paper, an old newspaper, used wrapping paper or whatever you have at hand. We promise it’s great fun when you get the hang of it. Some might even call it pure therapy!

The beautiful origami flower we’ve picked for you will personalise your home décor. It could also serve a great gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Follow this easy step-by-step tutorial below.

    1. To create the flower stem:


1. Take a square piece of paper and place it with one corner at the top and one at the bottom.

2. Fold the left corner over to the right corner.

3. Unfold it again, then fold each side permanently into the centre.

4. Now grab the two sides and fold them permanently into the centre.

5. Grab the “new” left and right side and fold them so they meet in the centre.

6. Now do the same one more time with the new sides.

7. Grab the bottom edge and fold it to meet the top edge.

8. Now fold the entire left side towards the right side.

9. Grab the bottom that is now at the top and pull a bit to the right.

10. It should now be able to stand by itself.

    1. To make the flower head:


1. Take a square piece of paper and place it with one corner at the top and one at the bottom.

2. Fold the paper so that the bottom corner meets the top corner, creating a triangle shape.

3. Fold the left corner to the right corner and unfold.

4. Fold the left corner up to two-thirds of the left side and do the same with the right corner.

5. Grab the left corner and bend it back and do the same with the right.

    1. To combine to stem and the head:


1. Glue the flower head on to the top of the flower stem and, voila, you have a beautiful self-made decoration.
