Best of 2017: DIY + Flowers

by Grace Bonney

If there’s one design element we love without hesitation here at D*S, it’s anything connected to flowers. Whether it’s a great floral arrangement project or a DIY paper flower tutorial, we love bringing in color and texture through florals. We posted so many wonderful projects and ideas this year so scroll down to check out our favorite florals, floral DIYs and a few DIYs (without flowers) that are worth trying over the holiday break. –Grace
