We’ve created quite a few poppies here at Lia Griffith over the last 10 years. They come in so many different varieties it’s difficult to choose a favorite. Because of its versatility, we’ve crafted our poppies from felt, tissue paper, and for this month’s video tutorial— crepe paper. This Crepe Paper Wild Poppy Flower DIY is such a happy addition to our extensive poppy collection. We just know you’re going to love it!
If you want to get a jump on this project, use the template below to precut the petals, center strips, and leaves before the live class. Note that the template indicates when to pre-stretch your crepe paper before cutting. This will give you a more delicate flower.
Wild Thing. . . You Make My Heart Sing!
I’ll be using heavy crepe paper to craft these wild poppy flowers to keep them beginner friendly. My free video tutorial will go over tips and tricks for working with crepe paper, and I’ll show you how to add details that make these beautiful blooms come to life.

Though this might be the first time you’re seeing these white and yellow blooms on our site — it won’t be the last. We’ll be using these wild poppy flowers in two arrangements in our upcoming Arranging Paper Flowers master class.
