How to Make a Paper Flower Garden

Today I surprised my kids with paper flowers for Easter.  My oldest son liked his so much that he wanted to make a whole garden of paper flowers.  So we pulled out the cupcake liners and pipe cleaners and began making flowers.  My son came up with the idea of the garden.  We grabbed a shoe box and covered it with green construction paper.  Then we poked holes in it to stick the flowers in.  My son even figured out that we could use green pipe cleaner to make "grass" for our garden.  He is so proud of his garden that he put it on display in our dining room.  This is what we did to make our Paper Garden:

  • Cupcake Liners
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Shoe Box
  • Construction Paper
  • Pen (for poking holes)
  • Tape or Glue
  1. Make your paper flowers using cupcake liners and pipe cleaners (see below for instructional links).
  2. Cover a shoe box with green construction paper.
  3. Poke holes in the top of the box.
  4. Insert flowers into holes.

Paper flowers are a great gift idea for children to make.  It's perfect for Teacher Appreciation Day and Mother's Day too!We had so much fun spending time together making this craft!  I hope you do too!

    different subject but it has pretty much the same page
    layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
