What you'll need

  • Construction paper, your choice of colors
  • Pom poms, medium or large, your choice of colors
  • Bendable straws
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Flower shaped cookie cutter (optional)

Helpful Tip:

1. Construction paper is perfect for a large variety of projects, be sure to keep plenty on hand. 2. If you don't have pom pom you can use cotton balls. 3. When displaying your flowers you can stretch out the straw to make it taller or bend it.

How to make it

  1. Use the cookie cutter or draw flowers free hand onto the construction paper. You can make larger flowers from the cookie cutter by turning it over and tracing around the outer edge instead of inside.
  2. Cut out the outer shape of the flower.
  3. Next, cut into the center of the flower from the side of one of the petals, and then cut a small circle out of the middle.
  4. Overlap the two petals between the cut line and glue together.
  5. Put some glue onto the pom pom and place in into the center of the flower.
  6. Carefully turn the flower over and glue the straw to the back end of the pom pom.
  7. Stand the flower upside down and lean against something to allow the glue to dry completely.
