Easy Squeeze Pouch Lid Flowers

Do your kids love squeeze pouches? My three-year-old sure does! Squeeze pouches are like a major food group around our house! These easy squeeze pouch lid flowers are a fun upcycled craft that helps us reuse and recycle!

If you don’t reuse items around the house for crafts, you should give it a try! Making crafts from items out of the recycling bin encourages creativity and resourcefulness — and often doesn’t cost a dime! Pretty frugal, huh?

upcycled flower craft We do it so much around our house that my three-year-old has picked up this knack as well — it’s pretty hilarious to watch! She’ll sit there with an empty Ziploc bag or soda bottle and talk about how we upcycle it into a dolphin or hot air balloon. She’s definitely imaginative! So I enlisted her help on this squeeze pouch lid mission.

After much thought, my little one suggested we use the squeeze pouch lids to make flowers — I loved the idea! I collected lids like a mad woman for a week, and ended up with way more than I needed. However, it gave us a great color selection to choose from! I am really pleased with the way they turned out, and am thinking they’d make really cute 3-D art that you could frame and hang in a kid’s room. Don’t you agree?

  2. Glue down the stem and petals to form a flower. We layered two different colors to form the flower. It would be fun to experiment with colors and patterns, especially if you were going to frame this!
