After my kids made this super, simple craft, they started searching for a little desk to put in their room.

They wanted to display their new flowers!

Thus, the natural girl-decorating creativity started blooming. :)

About an hour later, I walked into their room and saw their cute arrangement with rocks, a glass bottle and even a toy laptop beside the vase.

Where’d they get that idea from? Wink, wink!

  • cupcake wrappers
  • decorated paper straws
  • hot glue gun
materials needed for paper flowers

Directions:

  1. First, poke a small hole in the middle of the cupcake wrapper. You can use a hole punch or wooden skewer. Slowly and gently widen the hole until it can fit over the paper straw.
  2. Now, place one cupcake wrapper over the straw, wrapper facing upward.
  3. Now, scrunch up the wrapper until it begins to resemble a carnation flower.
  4. Then, slide wrapper down about 3 cm, and place hot glue on the straw where you want the petal to attach. Make sure to leave a little room for two more wrappers at the top.
  5. Now, move the wrapper bake up and stick to the glue and carefully press until wrapper adheres to the straw.
  6. Repeat for the next two wrappers.
  7. Fluff paper flowers and scrunch some more until desired shape is reached.
  8. Ensure flowers are completely dry before letting kids play with them or putting them in a vase.

  1. Those are too cute! I think I’ll use a toothpick instead of a straw and decorate my next set of cupcakes with those! It would be so appropriate (and they’d match! lol!)
