Wishing you the best this holiday season

Although we typically craft poinsettias and magnolias this time of year, it’s fun to think of other winter flowers we can make. The fairy primrose typically blooms from late winter to mid-spring, so this is a great flower to make right now. And you can enjoy it in your home year-round if you want to! 

Just like the real flower, our frosted paper fairy primrose features clusters of pink flowers and crinkled oval leaves. While we personally love to sprinkle some pink into our holiday decor, you can always choose to make your flowers in whatever color you prefer. For additional detail, Meagan colored her petals and leaves as well as the center of each flower, which you can see how to do in our photo tutorial.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tips: Allow center to dry before assembling the rest of flower. You can also use as many flowers as you like in a pot; we made 8 flowers with 5 buds for our 4″ pot
