DIY Crepe Paper Ombré Garden Roses

Crepe_Paper_Ombre_Garden_RosesI am loving working with Italian floral crepe paper to make new flower designs. The crepe stretches to form petal shapes and ruffled edges giving the paper flowers a luxe finish. It has been several years since I designed the rose pattern for the printed and metallic paper version that are quite easy to make and so popular for DIY weddings. I knew it was time to design a crepe version and it was during my morning walk with Enzo (my dog) that I decided today’s rose needed to be the full bloom garden variety I was seeing in my neighborhood yards. The paper I selected is the pink salmon ombré that Carte Fini supplies. I used two colors of green, sage & green leaf. Again, the Italian floral crepe paper is a thicker version with more crinkles therefore has more stretch than a craft crepe. You can try this pattern with any variety or color of crepe and it will no doubt be beautiful. Order a roll or two of Italian crepe paper and make this gorgeous rose bloom with me. Below you will find the step by step tutorial and the printable pattern for this luscious garden rose. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. Hi, I wonder where can I get the lovely crepe paper?

  2. hi lia
    i really loved this but the problem is that we do not get flower wire in india could you suggest any other wire

  3. This bring back memories from my childhood (and we won’t discuss how long ago that’s been!). I used to spend a week every summer with my great-aunt, and we made all kinds of crafty things, including these crepe paper roses. I love your ombre version and I know should would too. Time to make a bouquet and savor the memories. Thanks, Lisa.

  4. Such pretty colors Lia! I’ve told so many people about your delicious blog! <3

  5. You never fail to amuse me Lia

  6. are the green colors from the same store? and if so, what color are they?

  7. Hi Lia,

    Gorgeous! Do you think I could make these with dyed coffee filters?

    • That would be a different pattern. Since this once stretches and coffee filters don’t you would have a different look. I am sure it would be a pretty flower though.

  8. Thank you very much for bringing out such wonderful tutorials. They’re so easy to follow. :)

  9. Another great paper flower from you—so very pretty!

  10. Clicking the download link takes me to a photograph, not the pattern :-(
