This month’s Member Make just so happens to be the fifth and final project of our Autumn Colors Craft Summit! This Crepe Paper Virginia Creeper is a fitting conclusion to this series, as what’s more “autumny” than a beautiful fall leaf? We chose this project for your Member Make as it fully embraces everything beautiful about the season.
Take a look at our list of materials and tools below before getting started on your Crepe Paper Virginia Creeper. If you prefer to be ahead of the game, don’t hesitate to download and cut your leaf pattern ahead of time. Join us on Friday, October 20, at 12:00 noon PST for our live workshop! If you miss the live, no worries; we’ll post the video here.

Virginia Creeper is one of the first leaves to begin changing color in the fall and can become almost florescent at its peak. The bright red stems of this leaf will offer a nice contrast to the deep blue berries we’ve added to the design. Once complete, these vines would make such a beautiful centerpiece for your holiday table.
During our live video workshop, we’ll show you how to transform these purely red and green leaves into a kaleidoscope of fall color by applying a bit of PanPastel. Due to the sheer number of tools, materials, and techniques used for this project, we consider it an advanced-level craft. However, if you’re keen to take on a challenge as an intermediate crafter or simply want to learn a few tips and tricks as a beginner — that’s fine, too. All members, no matter their skill level, are welcome here.
We cannot wait to see your gorgeous crepe paper Virginia creepers, so please be sure to share them with us in our crafters’ community or give us a shout out on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
