Create your very own Paper flower wreath
There is something really special about flowers. They are so delicate and naturally beautiful, but paper flowers are long-lasting which makes this DIY idea EVEN BETTER. The idea of creating a flower out of paper may seem daunting at first, but they really aren’t difficult once you get into the swing of things. The most amazing part about this is that no matter how time consuming it may be at first, every year you can re-use them and that’s what makes the time investment worth it!
Turn your wine bottle into a small garden

Trying this may take a bit of trial an error to cut the bottle using the string and acetone method, but it is definitely worthwhile! There are endless ways to present this beautiful DIY once you have completed. Whether you put succulents, herbs or flowers, this DIY will most certainly be a centrepiece for your home this spring.
