Faux Marigold Decorations!

I am super excited to share a beautiful alternative to fresh flowers.


I loveee them! These faux marigolds look gorgeous and almost real..;-) They are made of colored tissue papers.

Paper flower decorations are the most cheapest and easiest for any occasion. They look like real ones and will surely come handy for multiple events.

Some of my other faux flower projects are here, here and here.

Well, to make these pretty Marigolds you need:


Tissue paper – dollar store ($1) or Walmart (97c)

Paper plates – Green (optional) for Leaves


Stapler (Big)

Circular lid  (trace circles)

Step 1: Take 3-4 tissues or depending on how dense you want the flower to be and trace circles.

Step 2: Cut the circles, make sure to hold all the layers of the tissue. You can use paper clips to hold them together.


Step 3:  Keep the circles together and staple in the center.


Step 4:  Start making petals – separate the top most circle of the bunch and crumple it upward from the center.


Step 5 : Repeat with each circle and keep gathering the crumpled circles upward.


Step 6: Once you are done gathering them, open the layers gently to give a more fuller and realistic look.

And that’s it, you have beautiful flowers ready to decorate the way you wish .


The options are endless 🙂

You can make centerpieces, garlands, door decorations for Indian festivals, stick them on wall with painters tape or even lay them on floor with some candles.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)

    1. I am sure the tiny ones must be looking cute! Unfortunately i don’t have the tissue paper size of the one’s I used – may be tracing a larger circle can make a difference in the size of the flower 🙂


  1. WOW !! Super easy and so beautiful. I tried it with white tissues I had at home, but I am headed out to get yellow and orange. I will post pics when I make them. Thanks for the post.
