This mother’s day grab a stack of pipe cleaners and a little bit of hot glue and you can make your mom a darling bouquet of pipe cleaner flowers. These are so easy that kids can make them with very little help and they last forever!
Pipe Cleaner Flowers
All you need for these flowers is pipe cleaners and hot glue. You can make your flowers in any color you want but for simplicity sake in this tutorial our flower will be yellow, the center orange and the stem green. If you want to change your colors you need three pipe cleaners to be your petals, one to be your center color and one to be your stem color.
You will need:
- 3 pipe cleaners in yellow
- 1 pipe cleaner in green
- 1 pipe cleaner in orange
- Hot Glue
The best part of these flowers is they need very little glue! It is mostly just twisting the pipe cleaners together.
Step: Fold all of the yellow pipe cleaners in half.
Step 2: Gather all of the yellow pipe cleaners at the fold.
Step 3: Twist the bottom of all of the pipe cleaners together.
Step 4: Spread out the pipe cleaners.
