This is a wonderfully pretty activity that is relatively mess-free – no painting involved – and makes a wonderful gift!

This activity involves cutting and sticking so it involves the chance to practice some of those basic skills like cutting and co-ordination!

We love making flowers! I’ll add a few more ideas to the end of this page!

Paper flower art. What materials do you need?

  1. A large piece of thick paper or cardboard for the background. We used an A3 size – so a little bigger to give us more space to work with!
  2. Colored cardboard or paper for the vase, stems, and flowers
  3. Scissors & Glue
  4. A black marker/color markers if you want to add designs to your vase.

The shopping list from Amazon – we are part of the affiliate program which means we earn a small % of the sale at no extra cost to you.

Flower Art Instructions:

  • Gather all your materials including a large – A3 – piece of background card or thick paper – we used white, colored circles of different sizes, green for the stems and choose a color for your vase.
  • Glue, and scissors
  • The first thing you do is make your vase – in the shape you choose. Cut it out but do not stick it down. You need to place it onto the paper so you know where the stems will go – however you first stick the stems and then stick the vase – this gives the effect that the stems come out of the vase.
  • If you want to decorate your vase, you can choose to decorate it at the end once stuck in place or before you stick it down.
  • Once your stems and vase are stuck down you can begin to cut and stick your flowers.
  • To make your flowers you need to cut the circles into spirals. Leave a little round bit in the middle – this is where you stick it down.

We added a final touch to one of our creations by cutting little round flower centers. Completely up to you.

It really is as simple as that. What a result! Beautiful flowers in a vase that pop off the page!
