Three years ago I made a crepe paper quince branch for our first master class. It was a member favorite — and one of mine too! In fact, I still have the original creation on my entry table. For this free version, I have updated a few of the techniques, materials, and tools.
You can learn how to make this branch during our live workshop on January 13th at 11:00am PT, or watch the recording here later. To get ready, check out our supplies list below and download the free flower pattern at the end of the post.
Along with paper flowers and paper plants, I love making my own blooming branches to use as home decor. This crepe paper quince branch would look beautiful on an entry table, living room console, or dining room table. If you’d like, you can also add some other crepe paper flowers for a fuller arrangement.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: Use a found branch that has fallen from a tree. The number of flowers, buds, and leaves will depend on the size of the branch. For this crepe paper quince branch, I made 14 flowers and 5 buds. A smaller version could be 7 flowers and 3 buds.

Hi Lia, beautiful branch! can you please check the PDF file? for some reason is printing very small. Also, how can I modify this flower to do a cherry blossom? thank you!
Hi Carolina. When you print the PDF, be sure to make your setting 100% rather than “fit page”. This will give you the size intended. I will keep a cherry blossom in mind. 😉
I love this! I have a huge branch from land in Oregan that was donated to my child care. It was too big so I began cutting off some of the branches not knowing what I would do with them. Now I know!! I can’t wait to start making some for gifts!
We have other blooming branches on our site. Magnolia, apple blossom, dogwood. . . all work well with real branches and such a pretty look. 😉
Oh! Look forward to seeing the Dogwood in your February collection. Thanks for all you and your team do.
You are so welcome!
Thank you! I am learning so much, appreciate these extra tutorials as well as the things I am learning in your master class. January Is a little Brighter with crêpe paper flower making!
So happy to hear that!
i live in France. your flowers are beautiful.
i would like to manufacture them.
is what you can send the material to France.
have a good day
Thank you, Isabelle. We do offer international shipping and also have a resource of stockists in Europe. https://liagriffith.com/source-list/
How did I miss you were having this? I read everything you send later that night. I thought the only live was the last class? Did I miss something. These are gorgeous like everything you make. I will be watching for sure.
This is just a fun extra class we did on YouTube; you can watch it anytime. It is not part of the Master Class. 😉
Thankyou Lia. Just a question about the glitter glue.
We are in summer season and when would be the best time to purchase the glitter glue? to work in with this or is there somewhere you send it to New Zealand. I got some crepe paper here the light ones. I enjoyed the class thankyou
I think as soon as we have it available for you again, maybe in your Fall and our Spring. I will ask Virginia about shipping to NZ (that is where she is from).
I have missed the live event unfortunately. is there a way for me to watch the video since the live event is over?
Yes, it is right at the top for you to watch!
Like! Thank you.
You are welcome!
So beautiful! Did you make the vase? I’d love to make a small vases for florals I make. 🌸
Thanks. No, we found that vase at West Elm a while back. Now I am inspired to add that to my pottery list.
where is the play button??
It will appear at the top of this page one hour before we begin!
This is very pretty and I would love to create one. I’ll be there Friday.
I would be interested in a dogwood flower branch. Have you any Dogwood flower templates?
Yes, we have quite a few dogwood options, AND… Meagan is designing a new one for the February collection. Here is one from a few years ago. https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-dogwood-branches-video/
