Paper Bowl Sunflower

Sunflowers are so beautiful and are a popular fall decoration. I like to incorporate at least one sunflower craft into the classroom. This wall decor piece takes a couple days to complete, but it's perfect for this time of year. The students really seem to enjoy it.

Total Time: 2 classroom art sessions; approximately 1 hour to put together total and overnight for the bowl to dry after painting and gluing the seeds

Yield: 1+ sunflowers



  1. Paint the outside of the paper bowl brown. Allow to dry. Mine took several hours. You can complete a few other steps while waiting.
  2. Draw a sunflower petal onto the card stock and cut it out. Use it to trace 10-11 more petals onto the yellow construction paper. Cut them all out.
  3. Staple all of the petals around the outside rim of the bowl. Only use one staple per petal so you can adjust them later.
  4. Optional: Apply Elmer's school glue on the brown bowl. Add sunflower seeds and allow to dry. You can also use hot glue.
  5. Hang your sunflower! It helps to hammer a hole, punch the nail through the rim of the bowl, and then stick the nail back into the hole. Adjust you petals to make your sunflower look more full.
