How to Make an Easy Paper Daffodil Bouquet

One of my favorite crafts to make is paper flowers. Today I am sharing how to make an easy paper daffodil bouquet.

In the last year, I have made peonies, roses, carnations, hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, and poppies. Daffodils are very easy to make and I think the daffodil bouquet looks most like the real daffodil flower.

A few years ago I taught myself how to make crepe paper flowers. I bought a few books, watched a gazillion videos, bought some supplies, and started making paper flowers. It was that easy. 

You can find most of the paper flowers I have made in a post titled How to Make Paper Flowers.

I wanted to make some flowers for Easter and I know that daffodils would be perfect.

So I made some paper flower daffodils and wow, I love them.

I can’t believe how real they look and I love that they will last all year.

I get asked all of the time, “Why do you make paper flowers?”.

The answer is easy. I love to create. Anytime I can make something that looks great and is fairly easy to make then I am happy.

These daffodils look amazing and I can use them until fall. How wonderful is that?

I will probably keep these in a vase most of the time. But look how cute they look in a place setting!

Using the Cricut Machine to Cut Crepe Paper

I love my Cricut Machine because you can cut crepe paper or thin wood. And everything in between.

Here are all of the pieces my Cricut cut out for me. I downloaded the pattern from Lia Griffith and just uploaded it into the Cricut Design Space software. The detailed directions are included with the pattern.

Here are the petals and how they look after I added a fold down the middle of each petal.

Once all of the petals are cut, I placed a small thin line of glue down the center of each petal. I folded the petal and then opened it all the way except for a small fold.

I also used Pan Pastels to add color to my petals.

Also, if you look closely at the photos below, you can see the stamen I made. I turned over the edge of the wire with pliers and dipped them in yellow paint. I also added the orange pastel coloring on the ends.

Here I made the centers of the flowers and added the stamen. Don’t they look awesome?

Nest I glued six petals on each and added the stem and secured with floral tape.

Here are the completed daffodils. Aren’t they fun?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best paper for paper flowers?

I love using crepe paper. It has the look of petals with a see-through effect. But it also has enough weight to carry a fold or fluted edge. The colors that are available these days are also gorgeous.

  3. When I married about 45 years ago I used to make roses from crepe paper so this really brings back some memories. I wish then I had thought to take pictures of them but who knew…lol! I swear, I couldn’t believe these were paper when I first saw them…they are just gorgeous!
