How to make paper daffodils

You know that spring is really on its way when the daffodils are bursting into bloom and looking beautiful in your garden! And what better way to keep them blossoming all year round in your home than by creating your own pretty little pot of zesty crepe paper daffodils using our free daffodil template?

Crepe paper is perfect as it has a wonderful stretch, which helps to create natural curves and shapes that can be used to recreate the daffodil’s splendid yellow trumpet and petals. To achieve this effect, gently stretch out the petals using your fingertips to shape them.

A large bunch of these vibrant paper daffodils would make a lovely gift for people who can’t have the real thing or to cheer up a poorly friend or relative.

Our easy step-by-step guide shows you how to create your own vase of paper daffodils using our free paper daffodil template – great for bringing a splash of springtime sunshine into your home!
