What you need to make a Pipe Cleaner Flower Craft
This activity is so easy to set up, that you only need 2 things:
- Pipe Cleaners – 3 of the same color for the ‘flower petals’ and a different colored one for the ‘stem’
How to make this Pipe Cleaner Flower Craft
- Let your child thread beads into the 3 pipe cleaners that are the same color.
- Create the middle of the flower and the stem. Take a pipe cleaner and form a small circle or loop. Secure the looped end by twisting the end to the ‘stem’.
- Shape the beaded pipe cleaner into flower petal shapes. Loop the bottom of the petals through the small circle loop created in Step #2.
And your beautiful Pipe Cleaner Flower Craft is done!
My 4-year-old loved threading the beads through the pipe cleaners. She needed a bit of help with twisting the pipe cleaner into a flower shape. But she did end up making beautiful pipe cleaner bead bracelets on her own.
