Napkin Wedding Flowers


Napkin wedding flowers are perfect for summer wedding ideas. Dana Willard's creation is a versatile idea for the budget conscious bride.

To turn these into wedding favors check out Napkin Wedding Flower Favors.



  • Dowels - any size your prefer. They're about $2 at Hobby Lobby. If you want to spray paint your wooden stems, check out the No-Sew Flowers Tutorial for details.
  • Party Napkins - I prefer using two sizes: medium and small. If you can't find small ones, simply trim the middle napkin down to a smaller size. All these colors were purchased at Hobby Lobby, $2-$3. Ikea also has nice paper napkins.
  • Scissors



  1.  We're only using two napkins here: one for the outside, one for the middle.
  2. Trim slightly around the folded edges so that each napkin layer is separate.
  3. Scallop the two outside edges of the smaller napkin (just freehand it; doesn't need to be perfect)
  4. Fold both napkins up together like an accordion or fan.

  5. Cut a semi-circle on both ends of the fan (this makes the outer napkin scalloped as well).
  6. Make a small cut in the middle of the flower but do not cut all the way through!
  7. Place a twist tie in the middle and twist it tightly closed.

  8. Place a dowel next to one side of the flower and hot-glue it in place (or you can simply twist the tie around it as well. It's not as secure for long-term use but works pretty well).
  9. Carefully pull the flower petals back and shape them as you'd like.

  10. You're done!
