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!
Thanks for stopping by!
With Love and Frill,
