In our Home school art project this week we made a paper flower and I am going to show you step by step how to do it
This was my daughter who started making these paper flowers, I seriously don't know where she got the idea, when I asked her, she said she just thought of it - one thing I definitely know is that she did not get it on the internet, because they are not allowed to use the internet yet.
Do you have everything you need for your home school art projects?
What you will need to make your paper flower:
1. Grey Pencil
2. Colored paper can use 2 variants, in the example we used white and blue
3. Rubber (for just in case)
4. Sharpener (for just in case)
6. Glue stick
7. Ribbon, if you want to make a nice looking tie-back for the classroom like we
How to make your paper flower:
Fold the paper (this is the color you want to be the main color of your flower, because you are going to cut your petals out here) in half and half again, so now you have four sides.
Step 2 and 3:
Cut out 2 x big teardrop shapes, but they must end with a square at the bottom. (with the way the paper is folded, you will have 8 petals now)
Cut small teardrop shapes from the same color, if you want.
Steps 4 - 7:
Cut long strips from the other color as well as a round circle.
Stick the small teardrops at the one end of the long strips.
Fold a small foot piece to stick the small strips to the circle.
I hope you enjoyed this home school art project where we made a paper flower tie-back for our classroom curtains. You can share this with your friends, then everybody can make beautiful paper flowers. You can use them for whatever decoration you can think of.
You are welcome to share with us how your paper flowers came out.
