Kids Craft: Paper Flower Garland

Flower Garland: the perfect accessory for all woodland fairies!
Flowers can be replaced with leaf shapes or just about any motif (stars and moons...maybe.) 


Cut out flowers. I used a flower punch.

 

 Paint (we used water colors), let dry, add glue & glitter and let dry again. You can also let child paint a piece of paper, let dry and then punch out flowers shapes. Although, I think Lu enjoyed painting the flowers. There was something novel about it.


Cut a 1" x 11" strip of card stock. Punch a hole at each end. String a piece of ribbon or yarn through each hole. Tie knot. We painted ours green. Cover liberally with glue. Have child place flowers down. Overlap and add more glue where needed. Let dry.

 

The flash blew out this photo too much so I had Em model the garland (top photo) while Lu was in school.

Have fun crafting with your kids.
