A bouquet of paper flowers

Pick flowers, buy flowers or make flowers? We chose to make flowers because they bloom in every season and never wilt! They are a nice and colourful decoration for kid’s bedrooms.

Also, they are perfect gifts for mothers and grandmothers.

Materials:

  • craft paper, various colours
  • chenille sticks, green
  • beads
  • Pritt Original Stick
  • Pritt No More Scissors tape

Tools:

  • pencil
  • a thick, stub needle
  • scissors

For parents/adults:

One step requires the help of an adult. Please supervise that step so your child doesn't get hurt.

Step 1

Print out the template for the petals and leafs. Trace everything onto the craft paper and cut the pieces out.

 

Step 2

Then cut a small triangular slice out of each petal, from the edge to the middle. Now, when you overlap the edges it forms a beautiful petal shape. Glue the edges together. To be sure they stick, place a piece of adhesive tape on the back.

Step 3

Place three different sized petals on top of each other. Ask an adult to pierce a hole through the middle with a needle and place them on the end of the chenille stick. Place a bead on the end or roll it into a coil.

 

Step 4

Glue one or two green leafs on the chenille stick. Arrange several flowers into a bouquet and place them in a vase. Isn't that lovely?

Tips and tricks:

Another interesting idea is to attach a small piece of leftover paper or a little string in the middle of the petal instead of the bead.
