Here is a fun craft for the kids! Turn empty toilet rolls into flower pots. Cut flowers from cardstock and use them to fill the pots. It's a great activity to celebrate summer! Each toilet roll will make two pots, so why not fill the whole window sill with colorful flowers?
Total Time: 15 minutes per flower pot
Yield: 2 flower pots
- printed copy of the provided pattern sheet
- empty toilet paper roll
- A5 light pink shimmer cardstock
- A6 cerise pink cardstock
- A6 green sugar paper
- one bamboo kebab skewer
- vintage chalk paint kenton brown
- leaf green felt-tip pen
- Pigma Micron 08 black pen
- blue Giotto décor opaque metal pen
- thick paintbrush
- standard scissors
- sharp kitchen knife
- newspaper to protect the working area
- quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
- The following should be done by an adult: Use the sharp knife to cut the toilet roll in half. Each half will be a flower pot.
- Paint the inside and outside of the toilet roll pots with the kenton brown chalk paint and allow to dry thoroughly.
- Use the green felt-tip pen to color the kebab stick.
- An adult will need to assist with this step: Cut two pieces from the colored kebab stick - each piece should be 3.4" long. Tip: If necessary, use the kitchen knife to cut the pieces.
- Glue a piece of kebab stick to the inside of each toilet roll pot. The kebab stick pieces will be the stems of the flowers.
- Trace two flowers on to the light pink shimmer cardstock and cut them out. Glue a flower to the top of each flower stem.
- Trace and cut two circles from the cerise pink cardstock and glue a circle to the centre of each flower.
- Trace and cut four leaves from the green sugar paper. Use the black pen to add veins to the leaves, and then glue two leaves to each flower pot.
- Use the blue metal pen to add dots to the cerise pink centre of each flower.
