Pipe cleaner flowers
These sweet little pipe cleaner flowers are Just adorable! Once you’re used to the process they’re super easy to make and are such a cute little project for older children to make and gift or keep and display!
Here’s what we used
How to make these cute pipe cleaner flowers
Start by taking two of the same coloured pipe cleaner and twisting them together to make one large stem.
Fold a small loop near the centre of the pipe cleaner and then twist it secure at the point where the two pipe cleaners were joined.
Create a second loop next to the first and twist it at the same centre point to secure it.
Repeat this step to create a total of 5 or 6 loops and then twist the loose end around the centre of the flower to secure it.
Take the pipe cleaner that you will be using for the centre of the flower and wrap it around the centre of the flower going in and out of each petal as you do. Secure it in place by tucking the end in under the centre piece you just wrapped.
Next take the green pipe cleaner and push it up under the back of the centre pipe cleaner. Bend the top of it down over the centre to secure. Finally add a leaf by folding a small piece of pipe cleaner into a loop and then twisting in onto the stem. The flower is finished and ready to gift or display; Why not repeat this process until you have a whole bunch of flowers!
