Looped Flowers


This cute little looped flower is an easy craft for kids. You can make lots of little flowers to hang around … or turn them into snowflakes in hopes that real ones hit the ground.

What You Need
Toilet paper or paper towel rolls (empty)
Tissue paper
Scissors
Glue
Paint
Ribbon

What You Do

  1. Take your empty toilet paper or paper towel roll and flatten it by just pressing down on it along the side.
  2. With your scissors, cut one-inch strips off the roll, leaving the sides creased where you flattened it.
  3. One at a time, take a loop that you cut and glue along the edge near the bottom with the point of another one until you have come all the way around and made a flower.
  4. Before you glue in the last loop, however, be sure to glue a strip of ribbon to the point toward the inside of the “flower” to hang it with.
  5. Set aside to dry fully.
  6. Once dry, paint it like a flower or white for a snowflake and let dry completely.
  7. Then, put glue around the edges of it and lay it down on a piece of tissue to glue the tissue to the back of the “flower” to let the light shine through.
  8. Set aside to dry.
  9. Once dry, cut the “flower” out with just a little of a border around the edges.
