Do you ever miss the flowers in cold season? I do! I love flowers and plants, I think I have over fifty in my house right now. But they’re all leaves only, no flowers and I truly miss that wonderful, happy vibe that bright colored flowers give to my house. And that’s why I decided to brighten it up with a bunch of swirly paper hyacinth flowers!

These adorable curly paper flowers are called hyacinth. And real hyacinth smell absolutely amazing! While these swirly paper flowers are just a replica and won’t obviously smell at all, they still do a pretty awesome job at making a house feel like a home, cheerful, friendly and warm.

And they’re so insanely easy to make even though they might look a bit complicated on the first look. You don’t need special skills or tools to make these swirly paper flowers! Just your bare hands, paper, a glue gun and a glue stick.

When making these paper hyacinth flowers, the hardest part for me was curling the flowers. But this only happened to the first few curls, as soon as I got the hang of it it was all going at the speed of light. And I think my swirly paper flowers look so pretty and real, they’re totally worth the effort!

The size of your flowers will depend on the size of the paper you use. I opted for regular A4 paper size and my paper hyacinth are pretty close in size to the real flowers.

What paper is best for paper flowers?

I like to use regular colored printing paper when making these paper hyacinth flowers, as it’s affordable and easy to work with. However, if you want your swirly flowers to look more premium and sophisticated, you can opt for a thinner paper such as tissue paper, crepe paper, cardstock or craft papers.

What can I use as a stem for paper flowers?

For the stems you can opt for a wire stem. You can buy these at craft stores or online. Alternatively, you can use a thin wooden dowel rod, or even a pipe cleaner!

For my hyacinth paper flowers, I used a stem made out of paper; I’ll include the steps in the tutorial below.

So, grab your paper and glue gun, and let’s make some paper hyacinth flowers! It will be so much fun and the end result looks amazing, a stunning splash of colour in your home decor! And the best part is you don’t need a complicated pdf template to create these beauties!

How to make hyacinth paper flowers

How do you make a flower stem out of paper?

  • First, let’s make the stem. Start at one corner of the green paper and roll tight towards the other corner.
  • Apply glue stick to the opposite end and glue them together.

Make the flower swirls

  • For the flower: take the other colored paper and fold it in half, lengthwise then cut in half.
  • Cut fringes out of each paper strip, leaving about 1/2″ untouched, along one edge of the paper.
  • Using your fingers, start creating the swirly patterns by curling up each piece of fringe, one by one. Make the rolls as tight as possible but don’t press to flatten.

How to attach the flower to the stem

  • Grab the stem and apply a dab of hot glue to the top end. Glue one strip of curls with the rolls up, at a slight angle. Continue to roll the curls around the stem, gluing it with hot glue occasionally. Repeat the steps with the second strip of curls.
  • Grab the second piece of green paper and fold then cut it into 4. Grab one piece of paper and fold it like an accordion. Cut lengthwise into a “V” on both sides. Unfold the accordion then fold the leaves around the bottom of the flower, gluing it occasionally to the stem.
  • Repeat with the remaining 3 pieces of paper, spacing them out evenly around the stem.

Congratulations! You have just crafted a beautiful paper hyacinth flower that you’ll be proud to show off. Surprise your friends and family with these beautiful decorations and let the admiration pour in! Enjoy every moment of it.
