Making a Sunflower Craft


Pick which template you want small sunflower printables, medium size, or sunflower outlines. Get the digital downloads and print the sunflower printable pdf templates.

If you are coloring it color it right on the sheet. Painting it is another option just use watercolor paints or acrylic paints. You can also cut it out once you color the template.

Using the blank free template you can add tissue paper. Just have kids put glue on the paper and add small cutout pieces of tissue paper. Yellow for the petals and brown for the center. I’ve even seen people use real sunflower seeds to glue in the center of a sunflower craft. This gives it a fun texture and you can snack on sunflower seeds while crafting!

For the cut out template, cut the sunflower template along the outline.

Optional: Trace the sunflower template onto yellow construction paper or yellow craft paper and cut it out. This will make bright yellow sunflowers.

If you are using construction paper cut a small circle out of the brown construction paper to create the center of the sunflower.

Glue the brown circle onto the center of the yellow sunflower.

This sunflower craft is perfect for kids of all ages and can be used in so many different ways. This craft can be used to decorate a bulletin board in a class, for a homemade card, learning about sunflowers, and even party decorations.
