How cute is this paper flower pot craft? We had so much fun making these to brighten up our living room! They look fab on display and make great handmade gifts for mothers day, valentines day, birthdays, teacher gifts and more!

Here’s what we used

  • Coloured paper
  • Glue
  • 2 Paper cups
  • Bamboo skewer
  • Paint & paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • A button

How to make this cute paper flower pot craft

First start by painting one of the cups to make the plant pot. Then take the second cup and chop off a small section from the bottom. Paint this section the colour you want your flower to be planted in; we used brown for soil. Then finally take your skewer and colour it green to make the stem. pop them aside to dry – We used a small piece of polystyrene to stand our stem up in whilst it was drying.

Take the coloured paper that you will be using for the flower head and cut it into 6-8 equal strips of paper. Glue your strips together at the center to form a sun shape as in the above picture.

Take the end of each strip and glue it down at the centre of the flower.

Continue this process with all of the strips and then glue down the button to make the centre of the flower.

Attach your painted stem to the back of your the flower. Then cut out a strip of green paper and glue the two ends together to make a leaf. Glue the leaf onto the stem and repeat as desired.

Glue the end piece of cup down inside the plant pot cup so that the base is facing upwards. Pierce the flower stem through the upturned cup and then through the base of your plant pot cup so that it stands stiff. TIP: if your cup has a flat base rather than a raised base then a lump of blu tack in the bottom of the plant pot cup will give the stem something to stick in to. Add any extra decoration and once dry the flower is ready to display or gift!
