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.
- craft paper, various colours
- chenille sticks, green
- Pritt Original Stick
- Pritt No More Scissors tape
- a thick, stub needle
One step requires the help of an adult. Please supervise that step so your child doesn't get hurt.
Print out the template for the petals and leafs. Trace everything onto the craft paper and cut the pieces out.
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.
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.
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?
