We just love crafting with strips of paper, there are many wonderful things you can make – such as this gorgeous paper loops sunflower craft with seeds. If you need an easy fall craft for kids, this certainly is it.
Sunflowers are the flowers of fall, while many other flowers might still be in bloom, none is as impressive as the sunflower.
Sunflower seeds are pretty great too, they are delicious both for us and animals and they are pretty. They can easily be used in art and craft projects and we do love how they add something extra to this sunflower craft.
How to Make a Paper Loops Sunflower Craft With Seeds
What you need:
- yellow paper
- green paper
- colorful construction paper for base
- sunflower seeds
- white school glue
- glue stick
Step by Step Tutorial
Cut a strip of green paper and stick it on the base (we choose orange construction paper but any color will do).
Shorten the strip if it’s to long.
Cut a yellow circle (doesn’t have to be perfect – we used a paper circle punch) and two leaf shapes out of green paper.
Pinch the leaves to give them volume.
Stick them on the sunflower steem.
Cut a bunch of yellow paper strips – thin ones if working with older kids, wider ones for younger.
We cut ours to be about a “finger wide” and across the width of the letter (A4) size paper. We cut the paper strips in half. This all depends on how big you are making your sunflowers.
Apply glue on one end of the yellow paper strip.
Glue the ends together to make a paper loop.
Make a bunch of papar loops.
Apply glue on the end of the paper loop (where you glued the ends together)…
…and stick the paper loop on the yellow circle.
Continue with the rest, until you have a nice sunflower shaped.
Apply a generous amount of white school glue.
Sprinkle sunflower seeds over the glue. Gentrly press the, down with your fingers so they settle in nicely.
All done and ready for display! These make a wonderful decoration for the bulletin board.
