Simple Pipe Cleaner Flowers
Make a beautiful bouquet of flowers from pipe cleaners to give as a gift, decorate for Spring, or to use while playing.
How We Did It
Gather 6 pipe cleaners into a bundle and put them in the middle of a green pipe cleaner. Twist the green pipe cleaner closed. Continue to twist the green pipe cleaner to make it a stem.
Bend each pipe cleaner in toward the middle. She had fun bending all of the pieces to design her flower, but she got frustrated so I think this craft is ideal for older children (4 years old+).
When all of the pieces are bent toward the middle, wrap the last piece around the stem to secure the ends. That's it! Your flower is complete.
Get creative and have fun making a few flowers. Wrap a pipe cleaner around all of the stems to secure them into a bouquet. These flowers have come in handy when she has a pretend wedding or plays store. They would also make a beautiful gift for Mom or Grandma!
