How to Make a Paper Daffodil


Make flower arrangements out of paper daffodils that will never die. With paper blossoms, you can make ideal homemade gifts for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and other occasions. Children can make paper daffodils with some help due to the simplicity of the creative process. Use a variety of papers with realistic textures to simulate the textures on real daffodil blossoms.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 roll of yellow crepe paper streamers
  • Yellow tissue paper
  • 1 green chenille stem
  • 1 sheet green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cut six 2-inch-long and 1/2-inch-wide oval petals from the tissue paper.

  • Cut a 1-inch-diameter circle from the construction paper for the base of the flower.

  • Poke a small hole into the center of the paper circle with the tip of the scissors and thread the chenille stem through the hole. The chenille stem will be the stem of the paper daffodil.

  • Wrap two inches of the end of the chenille stem around the tip of your finger. Pull the paper circle up so that it is sitting in the middle of the coil you just made. This will keep the paper from slipping down the chenille stem.

  • Cut a 3-inch-long strip of crepe paper. Glue one end of the strip to the other to create a ring. Fold 1/4 inch of the bottom of the ring outwards and glue the fold to the paper circle to make the ruffled center of the flower.

  • Glue one end of each of the petals to the underside of the paper circle in a star pattern. Fold the petals upward to cup around the ring on top of the paper circle.

  • Allow the glue to dry completely.
