Petals with Personality
We have given our stephanotis a beautiful update! Our first stephanotis was made in 2016 and although it is gorgeous we think this new version better emulates the real thing. We have wrapped this climbing flower around a grape vine wreath and displayed it in a pot.

Stephanotis flowers, also known as Madagascar Jasmine, are so special to me. Fragile and sweet-scented, these little floral gems exude vintage charm reminiscent of a bygone era. I’ve always cherished these sweet flowers because my mother carried them in her bridal bouquet. In fact, in the language of flowers, Stephanotis symbolizes marital happiness and emotional purity — a true celebration of love that’s absolutely perfect for this time of year.
Much like the delicate nature of winter blooms, these Crepe Paper Stephanotis flowers require precision and artistry. Our workshop will guide you through crafting lifelike petals and using colored pencils to add subtle color nuances. Of course, if you’re new to some of these techniques, that’s okay! We’re here to walk you through it step-by-step.
We added a 6″ grapevine wreath to this project for a unique holiday spin. The result? A bold, modern centerpiece that will certainly steal the show this season!
