It’s been a longstanding tradition for us to create tropical DIY projects you can make right before summer. Looking back, it’s been six years since we crafted our first crepe paper plumeria. So we figured it was time for an update!
Along with showing you a new way to make this beautiful flower, we decided to make the template free and do a live workshop so more people can join in the fun. Just check out our supplies list and instructions below to get ready.
Although I will be showing you new crafting techniques to make your crepe paper plumeria look more realistic, this five-petaled flower is still very simple to make. The colors of this flower range from white, to shades of yellow, orange, pink, or red. Or you can easily combine colors by adding PanPastel or even colored pencils to your petals like I did.
Unlike our other versions of this flower, you will also learn how to create buds, add stems, and make the long, striking leaves that plumerias are known for. This way, you can add your crepe paper plumeria flowers to a vase or a larger tropical arrangement. Another fun option is to wrap these flowers around the ribbon of your straw hat, tuck a single flower behind your ear, or add just the blooms to a lei.
