Giant Spring Flowers Made with Collage Paper

springflowercollage

These giant, colorful flowers made of collage paper really are one of my favorite art projects~ they really brighten up our house for spring!

Materials:
How We Made Them:

We scattered all our collage paper out on the floor to better see all our color options. Lucy and I chose a yellow piece of paper for the center of our flowers and then some blues and oranges for the petals. 

I cut out the large circles for the center of each flower for Lucy. Then I showed her how to cut the paper for the petals. First we cut it into rectangular strips. Then she would round the corners of each strip until she liked the shape of the petal. 

Sticking on the petals

When all our petals were cut out, we used a glue stick to attach them to the center of the flower.

Flowers on Table

To finish off our flowers we cut some strips of green collage paper for the stems and glued those on as well.

We found the perfect wall for our flowers~ a big blank one right in our kitchen in desperate need of some artwork! (We hung them up using the removable adhesive putty so it wouldn’t ruin the paint.) 

Collage Flowers

We did all this while Theo was napping. He was so ecstatic when he awoke to a life-sized flower garden in the kitchen!

  13. LOVE THESE! They are gorgeous. We made similar ones last year and shared them over at Family Your Way. They made our house look beautiful all spring. I love how you used collage paper to create them. Bigger is always more fun.

  14. I can even cut green collage papers into bushes or grasses to ad life to the colorful flowers.. I can’t wait to do this craft to place near my window.

  15. It’s perfect for this time of year & while it’s an enjoyable activity for the children it also gives them an idea of the season & what happens during it adding to the educational side of the activity. I love it & I think all the seasons should be represented with similar activities.

  16. Saw these a few weeks ago and just loved them so I’m thrilled that you shared at Discover & Explore this past week! I’ll be featuring you today and sharing your great idea: http://www.kcedventures.com/blog/kids-flower-crafts-fun-things-to-make
