Foxglove is one of those really striking flowers that can’t help but stand out because of how tall they can get. They are typically not thought of as plants you keep inside, though, so we wanted to create an indoor version that would be just as beautiful as the real thing. This crepe paper foxglove is so pretty and you can easily make your own version using our flower pattern and tutorial below.
The pattern is simple to cut by hand — or you can use our SVG file if you have a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4.
As Sly as a Fox(glove)
There are usually anywhere from 20–80 flowers on each spike of a foxglove, but since our crepe paper foxglove is not five feet tall, we went with the lower end of that range when making our flowers. You can always experiment with your creation, but we would say that around 20 or 25 flowers is all you need for this size of foxglove.
When you start crafting your foxglove, you can make yours in whatever color you prefer. We chose a light pink crepe paper to make our foxglove and then colored the petals with a darker pink PanPastel to add more detail. This will also make the top and inside of the flower look more pale, which is how a real foxglove looks. After coloring our petals, we used a dark pink art marker to create the characteristic spots of a foxglove.
