Mary's Corner - Paper Chrysanthemum Pumpkin Project

Pin It


Fall Mums Created Using SCAL!

Hey everyone! We had a lot of fun creating this festive decoration.  The official start of Autumn is almost here and we are so excited!  We made it using some craft supplies in our arsenal, some simple cardstock and our new free 3D Chrysanthemum SVG.  Your family and friends won't believe you made these flowers yourself out of paper!

Project Requirements

  • 8 to 10 3D Chrysanthemums (sized at about 3" wide each) using our Free SVG File from 9.12.2009, the Chrysanthemum 3D Flower 
  • A small orange Funkin (available at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Fabrics, Menards and AC Moore)
  • Florist's wire, tape and foam
  • Spanish Moss, Autumn ribbon and a small scarecrow on a stick (got ours at Michaels)
  • Hot glue gun or other strong glue
  • Small piece of cardboard and scissors

    You guys are so cute together, hee hee. Thanks for the video and the awesome chrysanthemum. I have a question about the glue. How do you keep it from clogging up? I love it, but I hate it when it does that. I put the top on immediately after I use it, but the next time I want to use it I have to curse!! – not really, I don’t curse, but I do get very frustrated.

    I’m working on my next project :0

    I’m new to SCAL, so was very happy to find your site! Thanks for the great freebies, and I’ll be purchasing some of your others very soon.

    You may have done this, but since you didn’t mention it others may not know. When using florists tape, if you stretch it before you start winding it around the wire, it sticks to itself better and is easier to use!

    Aw thanks Carmen! It IS some quick-dry glue isn’t it! You do have to put the top on asap when you’re not using it. Especially when it’s a new bottle because then the glue is closer to the top (air hole). I noticed when the glue’s low in the bottle it doesn’t dry out or get clogged. If it does, I poke it out with a pin or a skinny stylus.

    Becky, I got my stylus at Hobby Lobby in a pack of three (all double-ended) over in the drawing pads aisle. I think people use them with tracing paper to transfer a sketch to a canvas or something like that.

    Thanks you guys! Glad you like! :D

    These are so cute! I was just reading through the instructions for the svg file, but still was head-scratching, so I was very happy to be able to see how you put the flowers together. :) Thanks, Mary and Leo!

    And everyone is right about how cute you two are together! :)
