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 colored pipe cleaner and twisting them together to make one large stem.
Fold a small loop near the center 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 center point to secure it.
Repeat this step to create a total of 5 or 6 loops and then twist the loose end around the center of the flower to secure it.
Take the pipe cleaner that you will be using for the center of the flower and wrap it around the center of the flower going in and out of each petal as you do. Secure it in place by tucking the end in under the center piece you just wrapped.
Next take the green pipe cleaner and push it up under the back of the center 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!
Earlier on we made some adorable kawaii bunny cards to celebrate Easter. I absolutely loved them so my son and I decided to adapt them to make this cute kawaii bunny craft to frame and hang in his sister’s bedroom (which we are in the process of decorating). They look adorable and the fact that her big brother helped make them makes them all the more cute! why not make some to decorate with or gift?
You will need:
To start you will need to take your white card and cut out your bunny shape. The easiest way to make your bunny is to draw an egg shape for the face, then add on two elongated ears. Don’t worry about messy lines as you can use this as the back of your bunny! (Once my scanner is up and running I will upload a template to make this step even easier – watch this space!)
Once you have cut out your bunny face shape, mount it on to your chosen colour backing paper/card. Then cut out and stick down two coloured ovals to make the inner ears.
Now to make your eyes. The eyes shown above are the easiest to make. To make the big cute open one, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and then another slightly smaller white circle to make the light spots. To make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips and glue them into a triangular shape as above.
Glue down your eyes and then from your black paper, cut out a number 3 shape to make the mouth.
Cut out two pink ovals to make the rosy cheeks and then optionally cut out an hourglass shape and a circle to make a bow. Glue down your pieces and your super cute kawaii bunny craft is finished! Don’t they look adorable?
