One of my favorite ‘crafty’ design elements is faux flowers. There are so many different ways to use them in your entertaining decor. Add a few faux flowers into a bouquet of real flowers, create a centerpiece entirely of hand crafted flowers, create napkin rings, table runners, hanging decor…the possibilities are endless! And depending on the materials you use, they can have a whimsical, sophisticated, or vintage feel.
Some great materials to use are felt, scrapbook paper, tissue paper, hand-made paper, newspaper print, even an old phone book (as seen above). Check out these great sources and tutorials for more on creating your own faux flowers:
