How to Make a DIY Paper Flower Wedding Centerpiece

Abbi's fingers are seen carefully wrapping a floral block with wide satin ribbon while it rests on a white table. This is the base for the DIY wedding centerpiece craft.

Step 1: Wrap the Foam Cube

I used some cream satin ribbon I had on hand to cover the block, but I would also recommend buying a yard of fabric and basically “wrapping” the foam block like you would a gift. Probably would look a little nicer.

I added on thinner ribbon in a zig zag pattern and then wrapped my rhinestone ribbon around the center. Find great prices on rhinestone ribbon here!
On a white wood table lays a cube wrapped in satin and rhinestone ribbons, with stemmed paper flowers above it.


Step 2: Add the Stemmed Paper Flowers

Starting with your largest flowers in the middle, slowly add the flowers by pressing the stems down into the foam block as far as you want. 
Using 18 gauge wire is best so it does bend easily on you when pushing into the foam. And try to avoid moving them around to many times. 
Dahlia, Ansley rose, ranunculus, and hydrangea stemmed paper flowers, made using Abbi Kirsten's templates, lay on a white wooden table.
Get a feel for how your flowers are coming together and spread them as evenly as possible. 
Blooming paper flowers have been added to the ribbon-wrapped floral cube, while additional stemmed paper flowers lay on the right, ready to be part of the wedding centerpiece arrangement.
Once you get all  your flowers placed in where you like you will probably notice small gaps between flowers. This is where greenery becomes your best friend. Use as little or as much as you need to fill out the arrangement to look round and full.

My centerpiece ended up being about 10 inches high and 11 inches wide. Great for any event. And I added a little place card which can be made with a couple flowers and folding a 4×6 inch piece of card stock in half. 
The finished DIY paper flower DIY wedding centerpiece is shown in an angle on top of a white wood table. The rhinestone ribbon faces outward and the paper flowers are in a beautiful arrangement above. A small yellow paper flower with paper greenery sits at the side of the centerpiece, holding the nametag to be used on the dinner table. The tag reads, "Abigail."
