panpastel painted crepe paper succulents

Just keep blooming

One of the things we love about these crepe paper flowering succulents is that they will always be in bloom. You can also easily customize this project to make different sizes of succulents in various colors. We’d love to see what you create using our pattern, so be sure to share it with us by posting photos to our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

Skill level: Intermediate due to the small flowers and extra steps needed to make your own double-sided crepe paper for the leaves. Also, blending the PanPastel takes some practice.

Crafting tips: Make sure to watch our mini course on how to create DIY double-sided crepe paper. You can also use the different sizes of leaves provided in the template to create a variety of sizes of succulents. What I have made is just a suggestion!

How to Make Crepe Paper Flowering Succulents

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. Cut succulent leaves according to template notes using scissors or a cutting machine. Note: You will be making your own double-sided crepe paper for the leaves using our extra-fine crepe in Fern and Coral. If you need help with this, check out our mini course for tips!
  3. On the green side of the xs, small, and medium leaves, use a paint brush to apply magenta pan pastel to the tips and blue to the base of each leaf, then blend.
  4. On the coral side of the large and xl leaves, use a paint brush to lightly apply magenta to the tip blue to the base and green to the center, then blend.
