In addition to launching our Halloween collection, we did a BONUS live workshop this month! This was a free LIVE workshop on October 14th at 11:00am PT (replay now below) to teach you how to make some gorgeous crepe paper Halloween wall flowers. We are posting the supplies now so you can get ready for the workshop and order what you need as things sell out fast sometimes.
Everything you need is linked below, and you can find the free pattern at the end of the post.
Wall you need is flowers
Jumbo-sized flowers make such beautiful wall decor. We placed these crepe paper Halloween wall flowers above our mantel to create a stunning statement piece. However, we think they would also make great decor for a Halloween-inspired bridal shower, baby shower, or wedding. No matter how you use them, we want to see them, so make sure to share photos with us on our crafters community page or by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram or Facebook.
Ready to get started? Part of making these crepe paper Halloween wall flowers involves laminating our paper with fusible web to create double-sided crepe paper. We will show you how to do this during our live workshop so you can use this technique over and over again. Once we have the crepe paper ready, we will show you step-by-step how to assemble these beautiful paper flowers with their unique centers.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: Due to the jumbo size of these crepe paper Halloween wall flowers, I recommend cutting them by hand. I will show you how to get the most from your crepe paper by cutting with scissors in the video. Since cutting with a machine would waste so much hand-laminated paper, I will provide the SVG below but will not be able to provide customer support for the cutting machine for this project.
- Craft Scissors
- Detail Scissors
- Pinking Shears — Scallop
- Needle-Nose Pliers/Wire Cutters
- Curling Tool
- High-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Fringe Clip
- Iron or Easy Press + Ironing Surface
- Halloween Kit (includes four items below at 20% off while stock lasts)
— OR —
- Lia Griffith Extra-Fine Crepe Paper (long sleeve) – Aubergine, Black, and Gold
- 58mm Cotton Spun Eggs
- Fusible Web
- Floral Wire – 18-Gauge Paper Covered Green
Additional Materials Needed:
Download the template below for this flower. Note that all of the petals, leaves, and the large flower stamen will be cut from laminated crepe paper. The template will show notes on how much you will need for each flower. Since the long sleeve is 20 inches tall, you can fold it in half to 10 inches to fit the fusible web. Be sure to trim any extra web that is not between the crepe before you fuse with iron. Here is a full tutorial on how to make laminated crepe paper.
Are you having trouble? Feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you out.
Just an FYI the SVG file is not working correctly. Everything is so large it cannot be used.
Thanks, Laura. There seem to be a few long lines on the left side that are not on in the original file, which leads me to believe this is a Cricut issue. You can upload them anyway and hide the top three random things that are showing red exclamation marks in the layers panel. Then it will work. I did mention several times that I do not recommend a cutting machine for these flowers as they are easy to cut by hand and you will save paper.
Missed the live (but the replay was GREAT). Can’t wait to get started on my flowers. Plan on starting these this weekend. Thankful I can watch this again and again for help.
You are so welcome! Enjoy.
Why doesn’t the closed captioning work?? I prefer to use it to help me understand everything!!
Hmmm. We can see them here. Maybe refresh your page?
How many flowers do we get from the kit?
You can make at least three 8 flowers with the 8 eggs in the kit. You will have additional crepe to make other flowers.
Just watched the video, these flowers are beautiful and I can’t wait to get back to working on them. I could not get started because I didnʻt see the pattern until today and didnʻt get my paper prepped before the video. I don’t do Halloween but l will make it fall colors. So excited, thanks Lia.
I think these will be gorgeous in any color palette. Be sure to share photos of your finished flowers.
I got you, I had to forward the video about 2 minutes. These are so pretty. Thanks again
Hey Team Lia, Sorry I missed the LIVE. How do I get the replay to play???? It doesn’t come on. Thanks
The video is now in the post. 🙂
I have tried to download the templates several times and it is not happening. Is it my end or yours? Please help. Thanks.
They are there. You might have your computer set to not allow downloads. When you click the bar it will open another window with the PDF. You can select download and put it onto your desktop and print, or you can print from the window.
Where do you go to print this to the correct size
Hi Beth! It’s 8.5″x11″. Just make sure it’s full size, not fit to page. The largest petal should be just under 10 inches tall.
Hi Lia and team!
Will a replay of the workshop be available? I am very much excited about the workshop but, unfortunately, have a work conflict.
Yes, we will post the replay here after the live!
Hello! I would love to join, but since it’s tomorrow I obviously can’t get the kit here in time. None of my local craft stores carry crepe paper. Is there any other material this would work with? Thanks!
Hi Katie! The pattern is designed specifically to work with crepe paper so it would not turn out the same if you used regular craft paper. But you can watch this video tutorial anytime you want after the live tomorrow — and if you’re in the US, delivery from our shop usually takes about 3 days!
Hello Lia and team! I noticed that someone requested that you post the flower pattern before the class tomorrow so that we could at least cut out the shapes. Could you please post the pattern/SVG today??? I w ould like to cut out the petals to be ready.Thank you, Coleen Barnes
We have uploaded the pattern!
How big are these flowers? What are the dimensions please
The largest black flower is about 16 inches across.
Will 24 guage floral wire suffice?? I’ll be on the road the next 3 days….sure hope I can order! The flowers are beautiful!!!
I only use the 24 gauge wire for the leaves and to hang the flowers. You can also use 18 gauge.
Just seeing this and see kit is out of stock, will you be restocking? Sorry out of country when this was sent.
Yes we will! It sold out fast but we’re expecting to have it back in stock tomorrow on 10/7. We will send a back in stock email so make sure to keep an eye on your inbox!
I live in France, is there any chance that the halloween flower kit will be back in stock before the 14th October? Im not sure if you can ship this kit from Germany direct to us crafters in France.
Hi Sarah! We are hoping to get the kit back in stock tomorrow and will send an email out once we do. We do ship to France!
Why would you wait unstill the last minute to let us download the Halloween bonus flower. Some of us have to work evening jobs and we would very much like to at least have some of our materials ready. Have the time I want to order supplies and it is out of stock. Please post the the patterns at least 3 days ahead so we can at least have the flowers cut out so all we have to do is see the steps how to put the flowers together. At least consider what I am asking of you please. Thanks and do have a great day.
Hi Mary! Thanks for your feedback and I understand. We will take this into consideration. One of the reasons we decided not to post the pattern early is because some people will cut out and make the flowers on their own, and we really love it when we can do these live events together with as many people watching as possible! Our supplies tend to sell out really fast, especially for a free/bonus workshop, but we’re expecting to get our kit back in stock soon! We will send an email out when we do.
I see that the bundle for this workshop is out of stock, as well as most of the other supplies. How long will this video be up so we can obtain the supplies and make these beauties?
Yes, it sold out fast, but we are expecting to get it back in stock tomorrow! We are keeping this video up indefinitely so you’ll be able to watch it anytime.
I see the 58mm cotton spun eggs are out of stock. Is the 58mm across (smaller diameter) or vertically (larger diameter)?
58mm is the large diameter from top to bottom of the egg
This is one workshop that I am not going to miss! These are absolutely awesome! Kit ordered!
So glad to hear it! It’s going to be a good one!!
