One of my favorites moments of Spring is seeing the Daffodil’s starting to bloom. Living in New Jersey, winters can be pretty rough some years. Once I see those daffodils it is such a sense of relief and pure excitement for spring. This Paper Daffodil Craft is such a sweet way to celebrate with your children. Better yet, create your own daffodil garden in the middle of a blizzard.
List of Supplies:
- Craft papers – 2 to 3 different colors
- Craft glue
- Pencil or marker – for tracing template
- Template cutouts (print below)
Trace the patterns from the template on the selected craft papers. Cut out the patterns from the craft papers by cutting along the traced lines. Cut small fringes on the rectangular cut out.
Take the 6 petaled paper cut out and create folding lines between every petal.
Apply a small amount of glue on the extra part of the petaled paper.
Join the glued part with the open end petal to close the pattern.
Roll the spiral cut out from its open end and continue to roll until reaching the center; Glue the roll with the center to create a rolled flower. Take the fringed cut out and roll it along its intact part, keeping the fringed end open. Glue at the end of the roll to secure it.
Place and glue the rolled fringed pattern in the center of the rolled flower pattern. This will be the center of the flower.
Now glue the center part created in step 6 on the center of the flower pattern.
Fold each of the petals backwards and then release the fold.
Now squeeze the tip of each petal to create a pointy tip. There, done!
Use different colored craft papers, mix and match to create tons of variation!
