Daffodil Daze

Looking for a way to decorate for spring with stuff you already have lying around? You can make a bouquet of these paper daffodils to brighten up any room in an instant!

You’ll need: yellow and white construction paper, q-tips, a way to color the q-tips yellow (we used food coloring), scissors, and tape


First, dye your q-tips.


Next, you’ll make the petals. It’s like making a paper snowflake, but it’s hard to explain. Hopefully these step-by-step pictures will help you. Start with a square, fold it in half, fold the top across diagonally and trim the excess so you have half of a triangle on top and a square on the bottom. Fold in the other half to make a complete triangle.

Fold that triangle in half, then hold it at the top and round the corners like this:



Open it up and you have your flower base!


Now for the middle, cut half circles out of the yellow paper about this size:


Roll it into a cone and tape it.



You have all the pieces you need- now it’s time to just put them together! Poke a hole in the white flower and put a cone inside it. Finally, take your q-tip and stick it through the middle of both of them. Tape the base of the cone and white flower to the q-tip and your flower is ready to go!


So springy! These can freshen up any table or mantel in an instant. And bonus: no watering needed to keep them looking beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by!

You’ll need: paper plates, decorative (or plain Scotch) tape, extra ribbons/strings- anything you want to decorate the container with), a ruler, scissors (regular and/or decorative), paper clips, and a pencil.



Step 1: Trim the edge of the plate with either regular or decorative scissors.


Step 2: Turn the plate upside down and draw this grid to create a square in the middle of the plate.



Step 3: Cut a slit in every other line around the square like this:



Step 4: Fold the sides up around the square, leaving it as the base of the box.



Step 5: Fold the excess part of each flap around to the next side and paper clip it like so:





Step 6: Tape the sides down, remove the paper clips, and decorate however you’d like. Fill with snacks and enjoy!



Here’s hoping this week will actually feel like spring!
