Flower Garden Paper Craft
- Paper Flower Garden Template
- Light cardstock – green, yellow, pink, blue, etc.
Begin by printing the flower garden template and cutting out the pieces.
Now, select different shades of green for the grass and background, and other colored paper for the flowers. Trace the grass patterns on two of the different shades of green. Cut out the traced grass patterns.
Grab the grass cutouts and apply glue along the bottom and sides of them.
Place the longer grass on the green background paper, aligning the bottom side of the grass with the bottom side of the background paper. And then place the shorter grass similarly, by aligning the bottom side with the background paper.
Trace the flower patterns on different colors of paper and cut them out nicely.
Cut small and even fringes along the strip for the center of the flower. Create creases along the petals of the flower patterns.
Attach the flower patterns criss-cross wise. Attach the fringed rolled piece in the center of the flower pattern. Attach the flower with the stem cutout.
To form your garden, simply insert the stem part of the flower through the top open end of the grass layout. Such a fun spring craft! Be sure to check out all of our spring crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
