DIY Paper Flower Wall Art: Mason Jars & Vases

How to make paper flower wall art! I show you how to display your gorgeous 3D paper flowers on canvases by arranging them above 2D Mason Jars and art glass vases.

In my last tutorial I created a several bouquets worth of Cricut paper flowers. So now it’s time to put them to good use and create some beautiful wall art with them. I’ve designed two lovely DIY paper flower wall art canvases and I’m going to show you exactly how I made them so you can make one, too!

The first paper flower wall art I made is a cute Mason Jar filled with red paper roses. There are exactly 10 roses, and each one is a different size to give it a little perspective. The Mason Jar vase itself is iron-on vinyl on a reverse canvas. If you don’t know what that is, no worries — I’m going to show you! The words on the jar read, “Love Blooms Here.” This canvas is 12″ x 12″.

The second paper flower wall art canvas is a pretty art glass vase filled with 10 paper flowers — each one is a little different from one another. The flowers are made from shimmer cardstock to give them some added sheen. The vase is made from transparency film using Print Then Cut on my Cricut cutting machine. I designed five different vase colors for you to choose from— blue, green, amber, purple, and pink. This canvas is 8″ x 24″.

You can get the free files for both the Mason jar and the art glass vase here on my blog, plus links to the flowers and leaves (see below). 

This step-by-step video tutorial shows you how to create both of these paper flower wall art canvases:

How to Make the Mason Jar Paper Flower Wall Art

Step 1: Find the paper flowers and leaves in Cricut Design Space

Go to https://jennifermaker.com/masonjarflowers (or https://design.cricut.com/#/design/130681067) to get the exact flowers and leaves I used — they will come right up for you in Cricut Design Space! Super easy!

Note: If you prefer to find the flowers and leaves yourself, go to Cricut Design Space, click on Images, click Cartridges at the top, and search on Flower. Locate the Flower Shoppe cartridge and select the flower pattern and leaves you like. I used 10 of the #M3F171 flowers in sizes ranging from 2″ to 11″ and the #M449AE leaf in different sizes.

And here is a handy guide to Cricut paper flower sizing!

You can use different flowers than I did, of course. Here are the 10 Cricut paper flowers available in Cricut Access:

Note: If you have an older Cricut that cannot access Cricut Design Space, you can still make these flowers if you have the Flower Shoppe cartridge!

I cut out my 10 paper roses using a 60 lb. solid core red cardstock (slightly textured).

Step 2: Prepare your canvas or surface

Decide what you’d like to make your paper flower wall art on, such as a canvas or board. I decided to use a reverse canvas from a stretched canvas. To make a reverse canvas, start by placing a stretched canvas face down and use a craft knife to cut your canvas off the back (right next to the staples).

Once the canvas is removed from the frame, you flip the frame over and then stain or paint it as you wish. I decided to paint my frame with navy blue acrylic paint.

Watch my step-by-step video to see how I prepared my canvas.

Step 3: Get and apply the Mason Jar decal

I keep my Mason Jar SVG cut file (Design #140) in my free resource library. You can access the resource library here (if you need the password to it, sign up at the bottom of this page.)

Choose how you want to cut out your Mason Jar. You could do it with paper, self-adhesive vinyl, stencil vinyl (to stencil it), and so on. I decided to use iron-on vinyl so I knew it would stick well to my canvas!

I used my EasyPress to apply my Mason Jar to the canvas I removed in step 2. I set my EasyPress to 340 degrees, pre-heated my canvas for five seconds, then put on my decal and pressed for 30 seconds. 

Watch my step-by-step video to see how I applied the Mason Jar decal.

Note: Once my Mason Jar decal was ironed on, I reattached the canvas to the back of the frame with hot glue. You can see an excellent step-by-step tutorial on how to make reverse canvas artwork here.

Step 4: Glue on your paper flowers and leaves.

This is the fun part! Just arrange the flowers however you wish above your Mason Jar decal and then hot glue them into place. When you’re done, glue in leaves. Watch my step-by-step video to see how I did it.

Here’s my finished paper flower wall art!

How to Make the Art Glass Vase Paper Flower Wall Art

Step 1: Find the paper flowers and leaves in Cricut Design Space

Go to https://jennifermaker.com/vaseflowers (or https://design.cricut.com/#/design/131684619) to get the exact flowers and leaves I used — they will come right up for you in Cricut Design Space at the proper size and quantity.

Note: If you prefer to find the flowers and leaves yourself, go to Cricut Design Space, click on Images, click Cartridges at the top, and search on Flower. Locate the Flower Shoppe cartridge and select the flower patterns and leaves you like. I used one each of the Cricut paper flowers listed in the graphic below (all were cut out at 8″ wide), plus the 3 each of the following four leaves: #M46FF7 #M4489E #M3E197 #M4258D

Here are the 10 Cricut paper flowers available in Cricut Access:

Note: If you have an older Cricut that cannot access Cricut Design Space, you can still make these flowers if you have the Flower Shoppe cartridge!

I cut out my 10 Cricut paper flowers in 80 lb. pastel shimmer cardstock.

Step 2: Get the Art Glass Vase decal and Print/Cut It

I keep my Art Glass Vase PNG files in my free resource library. You can access the resource library here (if you need the password to it, sign up at the bottom of this page.)

You can print the vase on plain paper, but I printed mine on transparency film to give it a see-through look like a real vase.

I used Cricut’s Print Then Cut feature. I cut my vase out at 9.2″ high. You will need to resize it after you bring it in (it comes in a larger size to preserve the high resolution.) Note that if you use Print Then Cut, your vase must be 9.25″ high or less in order to print then cut.

Watch my step-by-step video to see how I did this.

Step 3: Prepare your canvas 

I chose to keep this project’s canvas simple and used a plain 8″ x 24″ stretched canvas. But you could also use a board or a reverse canvas — whatever you want! 

Watch my step-by-step video to see how I did this.

Step 4: Attach your stems and vase to the canvas

I cut out three strips of 12″ x 12″ green self-adhesive vinyl to look like stems and placed them on my canvas.

Then I sprayed the back of my vase (made of transparency film) with permanent spray adhesive and placed the vase over the stems. The idea is to make the stems look like they are inside the vase.

Watch my step-by-step video to see how I did this.

Step 5: Glue on your paper flowers and leaves.

This is the fun part! Just arrange the flowers above the vase however you wish then hot glue them into place. When you’re done, glue in leaves to fill in any blank spots. Watch my step-by-step video to see how I did it.
