It always brings me great joy to take a flower I have made before and tweak the design, try a new technique, or make it in a different way. Looking back, the last anemones I made were for this wreath a couple of years ago. So for our October collection, I have designed some new frosted paper fall anemones that are simple to make. 

Because of the intricate centers and leaf shapes, it will be much easier to use a cutting machine for this project if you have one. But you can always cut these flowers by hand with our PDF template.

Fall Flower Fun

These frosted paper fall anemones are so fun to make and a great flower for beginners, too. After gluing the cotton spun paper balls on and shaping your paper pieces, all you have to do is slide them up the wire and secure each piece with glue. Easy peasy!

To give my anemones more of a fall vibe, I chose three colors of frosted paper from our stone fruit pack in the shop. This paper pack along with our berry pack includes shades of red and purple that work so well for fall flowers. And even though I am calling them out as fall anemones, I think they would be really pretty to keep out for winter, too. Especially if you add the metallic accents like I did to the center of the flowers.

When you’re done making your flowers, don’t forget to post them to our Facebook page for members! Or you can always tag your photos on Instagram with #MadeWithLia so I can spot them.
