A Mexican Paper Craft Garden DIY [Video]

Hand crafted paper decorations are a link to Mexico’s history and culture. Paper flowers have been used for hundreds of years to adorn homes, churches and tombstones of loved ones. They also add a festive touch to birthdays, weddings, and special holidays. These tissue flowers can represent roses, marigolds, dahlias and many other flowers in nature that have importance in Mexican culture.

Making these flowers is a skill that is usually passed down to children from their grandparents, godparents or parents. I remember my mom teaching me how to make them as a child and I still love making them and decorating with them.

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, these flowers are the perfect way to brighten up the holiday and create a vibrant backdrop for your fiesta. You can also match them up to any party color scheme and create your own personalized garden. This year, I put a twist on the idea by turning my flowers into a hanging flower garden to greet guests as they come by to celebrate a Mexican fiesta!

To first make the flowers, here’s a quick step by step guide to make the basic flower shape.

To make a hanging wall of flowers, you’ll need about 39 to 45 flowers so grab some friends or family and make a craft day out of this project.
