Making a chrysanthemum flower is a fun and relatively easy craft that can be used to spruce up any room. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A sheet of crepe paper in your desired color
  • Floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Floral stem
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Floral tape

Step 1: Cut the crepe paper into a square that is around 20 inches in length.

Step 2: Using your scissors, begin by cutting four 7 inch wide strips from the sheet of crepe paper. These will form the petals of the flower.

Step 3: Take one of the petals and fold it in half lengthwise. Cut out a semi-circle at the end of each petal to give them a more natural look. Repeat this process with all four strips.

Step 4: Place two of the petals together, overlapping slightly at the ends. Secure them with a piece of tape. Repeat this process with the other two petals.

Step 5: Take floral wire and cut it into three pieces, each about 4 inches in length. Curl one end of each piece together to form a loop and secure the loop with tape.

Step 6: Place two petal loops together and wrap the floral wire around them several times. Repeat this process with the other two petal loops.

Step 7: Use hot glue to attach the stem of the flower to the center of the petals, making sure that it is secure.

Step 8: Wrap floral tape around the base of the stem, starting from the bottom and working your way up to the top. This will help keep everything in place.

Step 9: Now it’s time to fluff out the petals! Gently pull them outwards and away from each other until they have reached their desired shape.

And that’s it! Now you have a beautiful chrysanthemum flower that’s ready to be enjoyed. Have fun and get creative with the colors and shapes of your petals – they don’t have to be perfect! Enjoy!
