These gorgeous Crepe Paper Marigold Flowers are the first project in our Autumn Colors Craft Summit. I love the sunset tones of this pretty flower and its many ties to fall. In addition to being the birth flower for October, marigolds are often used in Dia de Muertos celebrations to guide souls back to their loved ones. Also, their rich gold and yellow tones make them perfect for fall decorating.
Ready to get started? Gather all your tools and materials, then download our tutorial below. When you’re all set, you can catch this workshop live on October 16 at 12 p.m. PT. We recommend a cutting machine for this project due to all the small, detailed leaves. However, cutting them out by hand will work just as well.

The marigold is known for its strong fragrance, which is believed to ward off negativity and evil spirits. Their vibrant colors also represent the sun’s energy, signifying warmth, passion, and creativity! We think these crepe paper marigolds are perfect as stand-alone flowers. Place a few stems in a tall vase for a bold yet simple decorative accent.
For this project, we’re using a technique that’s new to us. To make coloring and adding details super quick and easy, we’re leaving the petals stuck to the cutting mat. If that sounds intimidating, please don’t worry. We’ll be there to walk you through it in our live video tutorial.
We’d love to see your finished crepe paper marigolds, so don’t forget to share them with us! Use the hashtag #MadeWithLia when posting on Instagram or upload your pictures to our crafters’ community.
