Made It: Crepe Paper Daffodils

Hello! In an earlier post, seen here, I showed off a crepe paper snowdrop I'd made. 

Well, now snowdrops are passe; daffodil season has begun! Due to all the rain and chilly temps we've had around here lately, it seemed to take forever for ours to start blooming, but they've finally begun to do so. We don't really have enough daffodils to cut for indoor enjoyment, though, so I made some crepe paper ones last night for this purpose:

My "daffodils" were a bit fiddly to make. I found it tricky to arrange the several petals just right around the trumpet, but did my best. And I think they look almost as nice as the real thing.

Just the same, I am very glad that we finally got some more sun today - and that warmer weather is in the weekend forecast. That should encourage more blooming of the real thing outside!


  1. Thanks for sharing these! I think they turned out fine. I clicked on the picture to get a closer look and I think they look great!

  2. Thanks for reading my blog! Now I need to make some crepe paper tulips!
