These giant, colorful flowers made of collage paper really are one of my favorite art projects~ they really brighten up our house for spring!
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.
When all our petals were cut out, we used a glue stick to attach them to the center of the flower.
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.)
We did all this while Theo was napping. He was so ecstatic when he awoke to a life-sized flower garden in the kitchen!
