If you joined us for our September Member Make, then you know we’re making this month! Instead of our typical crepe paper flower, we thought it would be fun to make a fruit that’s in season. Meagan designed this gorgeous crepe paper pear branch and we can’t wait to show you how to make it during our October Member Make.
Members can join us live on October 16th at 11:00 am PST to craft along with us, or just come hang out and ask questions! In the meantime, you can get ready for our workshop by seeing what supplies you need below.
We make a great pear
We’ve said it before, but we love our crafting community! Member Make is a great time for us all to connect, catch up, and chat with each other. In a way, we feel like we’re joining forces with everyone to spread creativity and positivity through crafting. And that makes us really happy!
When you’re ready to craft with us, just download the template below. This crepe paper pear branch looks so realistic and makes such beautiful home decor — we’re excited to see everyone’s different versions! You could also make a few pears to place in a bowl and use as table decor.
