crepe paper chrysanthemum flower

A mum-believable bloom

Mums are one of our favorite flowers to make over and over again. We have crafted different varieties out of frosted paper, crepe paper, and felt. But it’s been a few years since we made a crepe paper chrysanthemum. And since we’re always refining our techniques, this version will be our most realistic one yet! It’s also more of an intermediate flower than the previous mums we have crafted.

Since this is a bigger bloom, we recommend using heavy crepe paper. We have linked the colors we used below, but you can always use what you prefer. We can’t wait to see the crepe paper chrysanthemum flowers you make, so be sure to post photos on our Facebook page for members or on Instagram with the hashtag #MemberMake. 

Crafting tip: Use the steel ball shaping tool to gently shape each petal.
