If you’ve been with us for a while, you know poppies are a pretty popular flower around here. These delightful crepe paper red poppy blooms grow on nearly every continent and come in a surprising number of sizes, shapes, and colors, making them a great choice for decorative bouquets. For this project, we’ve decided to revamp a classic with this beautiful red crepe paper poppy featuring a more challenging design. 

Due to its many small pieces, you’ll need a steady hand to carefully place the more intricate details at the flower’s center — an ideal craft for our more advanced members. Once you’ve gathered your materials, check out our tutorial below. 

Just Poppy-ing In to Say, “Hello!”

Styled as one vibrant stem or placed in a dramatic arrangement, these crepe paper beauties will definitely make a statement. The highly detailed, delicate black center offers a gorgeous contrast against full, open petals of cherry red. If you want to punch up your bouquet with a few more brightly colored flowers, try these crepe paper chrysanthemums for a bit of added flair. 

We’d love to see your version of this crepe paper poppy, so be sure to share a photo in our crafter’s community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia. 

Skill Level: Advanced due to the intricate detailing in the center of the flower and its many small pieces. 

Crating Tip: Using needle-nose tweezers to place the black center details and the black petal details will make handling the smaller pieces much easier.
