Learn How to make Paper Accordion Flowers! So simple and pretty to hang like ornaments, add to gift wrapping and more.

I have an indoor collection of twigs that I always use to hang seasonal decorations like Christmas ornaments, Valentine’s Day hearts, St. Patrick Day shamrocks, and Easter eggs. But I felt like adding something colourful and a little springy for the transition time to Easter.

A simple craft for everyone to make!

I have a huge stack of unused scrapbook paper, punches and embellishments that are collecting dust, so I thought I’d put them to use and make some paper flowers to hang on my branch collection. So that’s what I did! I gathered the kids and we made some pretty paper accordion flowers to add to our Easter decor. This is a great craft project for kids, as it’s easy enough for little hands.
