If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’ve made many hydrangeas out of frosted paper. In fact, I just made some for a new bridal bouquet I designed. But today I’m going to show you how to make these pretty blooms using my own line of heavy crepe paper. I love that hydrangeas can be naturally blue. So for this crepe paper hydrangea, I chose the color teal. You can find this teal crepe in my new Botanical Garden collection—along with the starter pattern for this flower. Or if you’re a member, you can download the pattern here.
We’re Feelin’ the Teal
If you’re a member and you have some crepe on hand that you want to use, you can just download the hydrangea pattern below to get started. However, I just love this teal and think it adds such a fun pop of color to your paper flowers or bouquet! Also, if you end up getting the Botanical Garden pack of crepe, the greens will come in handy for making paper plants or leaves for your flower arrangements.
While I love using my cutting machine for most projects, the pattern for this crepe paper hydrangea is simple enough to cut with your scissors. But if you have a Cricut Maker, you can use it to cut your crepe! Just use the crepe paper setting and select more pressure.
When you’re ready to make your crepe paper hydrangea flowers, gather the tools and materials listed here. Members can download the pattern below. Or you can get the pattern when you buy our Botanical Garden collection. Once you have everything in front of you, watch our video tutorial below—or watch it now to get inspired!
