Next to poinsettias, the amaryllis has become a popular holiday flower. So, since it’s December, we will be crafting a crepe paper waxed amaryllis for our Member Make! Join us live on YouTube at 11:00 am PST to craft along with us. Or you can watch the video later and make this stunning crepe paper flower on your own time.
We will be giving away some of our new frosted paper packs during the live, so join us if you can!

Did you know it takes up to six years for amaryllis to reach maturity and produce flowers? While you could always buy one, we think it’s a lot more fun to make your own version and enjoy it anytime you want to! You can also make them in different colors and create versions you might not see in nature or find at the store.
Today’s crepe paper waxed amaryllis is a great intermediate craft project. So if you’re looking for more of a beginner flower, you can try out our simple crepe paper amaryllis instead. Both flowers are gorgeous for the holiday season and can be given as gifts.
If you have not participated in Member Make before, all the details you need are below. Otherwise, you can skip on down the post to download our amaryllis flower pattern and start crafting!
