Just as we were starting to see some signs of spring in Portland, it snowed! But the great thing about crafting is that we can make our own flowers anytime. Last week, we made some pretty paper sweet peas. And then a couple of weeks ago, we made these felt crocus flowers. Today we’re showing you how to make crepe paper double daffodils, which—like the crocus—typically bloom by late winter or early spring.
Double daffodils also go by the name Narcissus Erlicheer. If you haven’t seen this flower before, it features double blooms with ivory-white petals and creamy yellow centers. They look a bit like gardenias, which is another very soft, romantic flower. I would also say these flowers, or at least the stems and leaves, are similar to paperwhites.
To craft these crepe paper double daffodils, I used my extra-fine crepe paper for the petals and my double-sided crepe for the leaves. I also used PanPastel to color the petals. If you need some tips on how to color your flowers with PanPastel, watch this video.
If you’re new to making paper flowers, you might not be ready for PanPastel yet. But it will help make your flowers look more realistic. So I encourage you to try it out at some point! And if you have any questions for me, just comment below.
I would also love to see YOUR version of my crepe paper double daffodils! Remember to use #MadeWithLia when sharing photos of your LG projects. Or you can post pictures on our Facebook page for members. Happy flower crafting! ~Lia and team
