Mums are one of our favorite fall flowers to make, so naturally we had to include them in our September collection! Not only did Meagan come up with a new flower pattern for these frosted paper mums, but we have a video tutorial for you too.
While these DIY flowers look very detailed, the petals are actually all on one piece that you slide up the wire. This makes it very simple to craft, which means it’s also a great flower for beginners.
Mum on Over & Make Some Flowers
These frosted paper mums would be a fun flower to craft with a couple of friends. Or you can make them on your own and always gift one to a friend, neighbor, or family member with a card attached. Our papercut flower card would be a really pretty addition if you are gifting these flowers — or you can print off a little note card and pop it into your arrangement.
When you are ready to get started on your frosted paper mums, just cut out the flower pattern below. Then follow along with our video tutorial. While you can use whatever text weight paper you prefer, we recommend using frosted paper to give your flowers more depth. This will make them look more realistic and also you can spray them like we did to get that beautiful two-toned look. We can’t wait to see your version, so make sure to share photos on our Facebook page for members or tag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

The Color tool sprays seem to be pretty hard to find, especially in this color. Any suggestions on other spray paints, or will any due for a project like this?
Hello Lia! 😉 Yes, it seems these paints are all but off the market now. Not sure what is happening. You can find some great artist spray paints at Blick.
Help – I bought the Lia Griffin Pan Pastels but now I don’t know which flowers I needed them for.
Here are a few flowers where we used the PanPastels. https://liagriffith.com/pastel-painted-crepe-paper-tulips/ https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-african-daisy/ https://liagriffith.com/video-tutorial-frosted-paper-hellebore/

They’re so fun!
