How to Make a Paper Sunflower Craft

What you need:

  • yellow, green, brown papers
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue stick
  • hemp twine
  • tape

Step by Step Tutorial

The Petals

Cut equal-sized squares of yellow paper.

If you cut a strip of paper down the middle, the squares will be easier to cut!

Step 1

You will want to cut quite a few squares and one circle (for the base of your flower).

Your hands might get tired, but you can do it.

Step 2

If your kiddo isn’t great at cutting, you may want to guide them.

Step 3

You are then going to glue them together like a funnel.

Step 6

Make more of them.

Step 7

You can start gluing your petals to your circle base.

Step 10

One next to the other.

Step 11

All the way around.

Step 12

Cut two long strips of brown paper.

Step 13

Fold them in half horizontally.

Step 14

You are then going to cut slits along the edge of the brown paper.

Step 15

It could take a while, so make sure you take breaks when needed.

Step 16

Apply some glue and start tolling the first strip.

Step 17

Roll this strip all the way.

Step 18

Add some glue.

Step 19

And continue with the second brown strip.

Step 20

Roll it up.

Step 21

Stick it in the center of the flower.

As you can see, the brown pieces of paper make it look like the inside of a sunflower.

Step 22

Grab your petals and cut the end of the cone off.

Step 23

Do this for the rest of the petals.

Step 24

Glue the second row of petals around the flower.

Step 26

The Leaves

Draw two leaves on green paper.

Step 27

Cut the leaves out and apply some glue.

Step 28

Go ahead and glue them to the back of the flower.

Step 29

The Hanger

Cut a piece of string and glue it to the back of the flower as a hanger.

Step 30

This craft can also substitute a wreath on your front door.

Step 31

You can use a piece of plastic tape to hold your string.

Step 32

Now you have a beautiful sunflower craft that you can hang wherever you’d like.
