DIY Daisies frame

When I saw these paper daisies (aka strawflowers or everlasting daisies) at the florist a few weeks ago, I fell in love with them. They are so vibrant and gorgeous, plus they dry beautifully, so they are perfect for crafting with. I used them to line a plain picture frame, I think it makes for cheerful home decor! The daisies retain their colours really well when dry so this will last for years.
To make your own daisies frame, you'll need: picture frame with flat edges, dried paper flowers and a hot glue gun. *To dry your paper daisies, simply air dry upside down in the dark.

1. Once the daisies are dry, cut off stems as close to the flower as possible as well as any foliage.

2. With the hot glue gun, glue the flowers close to each other so the frame doesn't show through. I used flowers of varying sizes to make it visually more interesting.
