Everyone loves a beautiful flower! What’s better than picking one from the garden? Making one yourself! These flowers are easy to make and are fabulous gifts!
First, ask your mom or dad if it’s okay if you do this project. Then gather your supplies: Scissors, pipe cleaners and all types of paper (Tissue Paper, Wrapping Paper, Construction Paper, etc.)
Once you have all your supplies, find a clean area to work, like a desk or the floor. To make the flower, pick out your favorite color pipe cleaner for the stem. I chose green. Next bend a small part of the pipe cleaner, (about a quarter of an inch) over twice. Then cut the papers into all different shapes and sizes. Remember to ask an adult before you cut anything. Take your paper shapes and slide them on the pipe cleaner from smallest to biggest. Finally scrunch it all up to the tip of the pipe cleaner (the bent over part) and then use your fingers to un-scrunch the papers and shape it as a flower.
