Crocuses are one of the first flowers to pop up during the winter season. And while they only bloom for about 2–5 weeks, they’re a welcoming reminder that spring is near. One easy way to enjoy these cheerful little blooms indoors for longer is to craft your own crepe paper crocus plant.
You may remember that we have crafted crocuses out of crepe paper once before, but today we have a new version for you. We also potted our plant this time! Just download our flower pattern and photo tutorial below to get started.
There’s something magical about transforming crepe paper into a beautiful flower that lasts forever. For our crepe paper crocus plant, we thought it would be pretty to combine two different colors in one pot. Our lilac crepe paper is the perfect spring shade and chiffon is one of our most popular crepe paper colors.
Similar to our other crocus, our designer Meagan colored the stamen as well as the purple petals. Coloring your flowers is a great way to add more detail and depth! If you’re new to this technique, make sure to check out our video tutorial for tips on using PanPastel.
