How pretty is this Rolled Paper Hyacinth Spring Flower Craft? Make these to decorate handmade cards, gifts or spring-theme wall decor!
The weather is getting warmer and it’s like life is blooming everywhere! There are baby animals, new plants and of course, bright flowers all over the place. It’s no wonder then that spring gives everyone such a feeling of renewal and happiness!
And since we’re feeling all spring-y too, we’ve decided to add some more blooms to color up our lives, with a rolled paper hyacinth spring flower craft. We’ve made hyacinths with newspaper before, so we’ve gone the quilling route this time.
This is a craft that uses very simple quilling techniques and is perfect for quilling beginners. So if your kids have been wanting to try something new, this is a good place to start!
Rolled Paper Hyacinth Spring Flower Craft
List of Supplies:
- Colored craft paper
- Paper quilling strips
- Craft glue
How to Make the Rolled Paper Hyacinth Spring Flower Craft:
1. Grab 10 to 12 paper quilling strips and form them into open loose coils.
2. Cut out a piece of colored craft paper (same color as the strips). Apply glue on a straight line, on the paper.
3. Now apply glue on the paper (on both sides of the straight lined glue) as a guideline for the hyacinth flower pattern.
4. Grab any one of the open loose coils and place the open end on the middle straight line and keeping the coiled part facing towards the outer side of the flower pattern. Do same on the other side; but this time keep the open loose coil facing the opposite direction of the first coil.
5. Start gluing the coils from the bottom part of the flower pattern. After placing the loose coils on the traced glue, firmly press them against the glue to make sure that they are glued securely.
6. Keep gluing the coils one by one. While gluing and moving towards the top of the pattern, keep in mind to tighten and make smaller coils for each layer.
7. Once you are satisfied with the pattern or the paper comes to an end, glue a small open loose coil on the top center to complete the flower. Allow the glue to dry completely.
8. Use scissors to cut out the flower around the border of the quilled part. Cut out a strip and leaf pattern from green colored craft papers and attach them with the flower. Allow the glue to dry.
These are so easy to make you could make a bunch in different colors in a short time. Flower crafts are so versatile, you can turn them into bookmarks, use them on the front of handmade cards or decorate gifts. And it’s not just hyacinths, you can also try making heliconias, poppies, marigolds, tulips, lotuses and roses. Looks like you’re all set to create a flower garden of your very own!
