We are loving burgundy for our fall flowers this year! Last month Meagan made burgundy crepe paper lilies. And now for this month’s Member Make, she will be showing you how to make a burgundy crepe paper dahlia and bud.
You can join our live workshop over on our Member Make page on October 21st at 11:00am Pacific time. And we will also post the recording here afterward so you can watch it as often as you want. In the meantime, get ready by checking out the supplies you’ll need below.
We are loving the dark and moody look of this burgundy crepe paper dahlia. This is such a pretty color for fall and winter. Plus you can even use it as Halloween decor along with our black begonias, spooky Halloween trees, and papercut Halloween houses.
Skill level: Advanced — there are a lot of petals to assemble! For reference, it took Meagan roughly 4 hours to make one crepe paper dahlia. As a result, this will not be a flower you’ll be able to craft along with us during our live workshop. However, we encourage you to watch along and ask us any questions you have!
Crafting tip: This crepe paper dahlia is all about the shaping of the petals, which is also what makes it so time-consuming. We will be using the steel ball tools, curling tool, and needle-nose tweezers to shape each petal.
