How to Make Flowers Pencil Shaving Art

What you need:

  • different color pencils (we recommend you to use elastic pencils for this project because their shavings do not crack easily)
  • sharpener
  • color pencils (green, yellow and blue)
  • glue
  • black liner
  • small pieces of cardstock
  • beads – optional

Materials Used

Step by Step Instructions

Take your sharpener and start making circle pencil shavings.

You can make a few circles for one flower. Go nice and slow.

Step 1
Make a few flowers using different colored pencils.

Step 2
Apply some glue on the bottom of the cardstock.

Step 3
Attach the beads and wait until the glue is set. You can use a variety of other materials or just draw the grass.

Step 4
Put some glue on two flowers and place them on the paper.

Wait for the glue to dry.

Step 5
Using the black liner, marker or a pencil, draw a stem and leaves.

Step 6
Color the stem and the leaves with a green color pencil.

Step 7
Draw and color some tiny buzzers around the flowers. They will add to the spring atmosphere for sure.

Step 8
All done!
