The amaryllis has become synonymous with the holiday season, but really it is a flower to enjoy any time of the year. Meagan designed this gold crepe paper amaryllis for our January collection, and we think it would make really pretty winter decor. Or, since it is gold, you can display it on a mantel, shelf, or table year-round — just like you would with any other metallic home decor.

Due to the small pieces and various parts to assemble and attach to your flower, we would say this paper flower is an intermediate project. Just follow our tutorial below and let us know if you have any questions!

Everything is golden

Instead of using gold paper, Meagan decided to use gold spray paint to make this gold crepe paper amaryllis. And I really love how it turned out! Because we make so many paper flowers, we wanted to create something that has more of a sculptural look.

So, similar to our waxed amaryllis, this gold crepe paper amaryllis is more like a piece of art to display rather than a flower for a bouquet. However, it is much more lightweight! So we suggest placing it in a glass cloche (and securing it with hot glue). Another option is to display the amaryllis in a pot or bulb vase.

Crafting tip: Since you can use any color of crepe paper for this project, this is a good time to use up any scrap paper you might have on hand.
