April showers bring May flowers, and we’ve definitely had some showers this April. Who’s ready for some flowers? With this beautiful Cardboard Roll Flower Suncatcher Craft you can see some lovely flowers from your window any time!
There’s nothing better than a lovely, colorful spring flower craft. And we have plenty here to brighten up your room! Be sure to see our Fork Painted Flowers, Yarn Wrapped Cardboard Roll Tulips, and this Plastic Bottle Flower Craft, too.
For our Cardboard Roll Flower Suncatcher Craft you will need a toilet paper cardboard roll, single hole punch, tissue paper, paper plate, bakers twine, glue, and scissors. A pencil and ruler, too, if you want things to be neat and even.
Cardboard Roll Flower Suncatcher Craft
- Cardboard roll
- Tissue paper
- Single hole punch
- Paper plate
Flatten toilet paper roll.
Measure and cut into 5 sections (petals) that are ⅝” wide. Discard excess.
Keep toilet paper roll pieces flat and punch a hole through both layers about ¼” from the fold.
On one of the pieces, punch a hole on the opposite end for hanging when the flower is finished.
Cut a strip of tissue paper. Spread some glue on a paper plate. Open petals partially and dip one cut edge of each petal into your glue. Press the glued edge of each petal onto the cut piece of tissue paper. Space them out at least ½” apart on the tissue paper strip. Let dry.
Cut between each petal so you have 5 separate pieces. With the cardboard side up, trim excess tissue paper off each flower petal.
Lay the five pieces with tissue paper side down, holes in the center, onto a flat surface. Weave a piece of bakers twine through each hole, pull tight, but not too tight. Tie into a knot and trim excess.
Tie a long piece of bakers twine through the petal with the hole punched in it for hanging.
Now it’s time to hang the suncatchers in a window and enjoy! Be sure to find more of our spring crafts at Our Kid Things!
