Daisies are cut from plain bond paper and made to look like real daisies.

Making paper daises is a fun and easy craft for these winter days. Here in Southern California, we are blessed with warm weather and early springs. Many flowers are blooming now and I was inspired to make, with paper, some paper daisies. These are Osteospermum fruticosum, or the Seascape Daisy.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. First, pick a few flowers so that you can dissect it and do some measurements. I used 1 and 3/8 inch petals, a piece of wood dowel (1/2in) for the centers and leaves of about 1 and 1/2 inch.

  3. Next, cut the petals (there are 22 on each head). You can trace an outline if needed and use it as a template.
  4. Use a 3/4 in piece of paper or cardstock to glue the petals in the circular pattern.

  6. Make leaves based on a real sample, glue to 26 gage stem wire, then wrap the wires together, and attach to main stem using floral tape.
  7. Make as many as you want. With other homemade flowers, you can make an entire arrangement that will last for many years.
