DIY: Curly Paper Flower

Want a fresh paper flower idea just in time for spring? Look no further…


  • Decorative paper
  • Hot glue and gun or glue stick
  • Scissors


Cut 5 strips of paper ½ inch wide by 6 inches long. Cut 3 circular pieces of paper between ½ inch to 1.25 inches in diameter. I used scissors with decorative edges, but you can use regular scissors, too. Curl one strip of paper 3 times. Overlap the ends and glue together. Do this for the remaining 4 strips.


Glue the 3 circular cutouts on top of each other. Assemble the curled strips of paper onto a separate circular cutout. Glue them to the cutout. Center and glue the 3 circle cutouts to the top of the flower.


Now get the kids involved in gearing up for spring with curly paper flowers.
