We’re loving the gorgeous purple hue of this crepe paper lisianthus. Normally these flowers can be quite finicky and tricky to grow so we found a way for you to create your own instead. Trust us, it’s easier than you think. We’ve outlined all the tools, materials, and steps you need below so you can perfect these purple beauties.
A Vision in Violet
Crepe paper is a perfect choice for making lisianthus flowers since they have such delicate, ruffled petals. Along with showing you how to make a crepe paper lisianthus flower, you will also learn how to make the buds. This will make your DIY bouquet look more realistic. And you can always decide to use the buds for something else too — like a boutonnière, wrist corsage, or flower hair comb.
