June has been busy around here! It started with a week in Iowa for my niece’s wedding, the next week was VBS, and then Girl Scout day camp.
We’ve hardly had time to breathe, much less do kids crafts.
It was while I was hanging with my preschooler at VBS that I came across this cute paper plate flower craft.
Isn’t that just too cute? I love those feathers!
Paper Plate Flower Craft
To create this particular paper plate flower, we started with a small colored paper plate for the center.
The kids then glued on colorful feathers for the petals. This is where they can really get creative!
The stem is actually a sliver cut from a green pool noodle.
One more paper plate, this time in green, got cut in half to create the flowers leaves.
I love how creative you can get when making your paper plate flowers. Construction paper, sequins, glitter…the ideas of what could be used is endless!
Looking for a larger flower?
Use a larger plate for the center and tape smaller colored plates around it as petals! (The artist of this one further decorated it with a paper cup and feathers in the center.)
This paper plate flower craft makes the perfect decoration for spring and summer parties.

Isn’t is awesome all the different things you can do with paper plates!?! We used to go through them like water in the preschool I taught in!
Really, there are just so many craft ideas, I think I need to start a paper plate craft pin board! 🙂

I love that you used feathers for this project!
We don’t use feathers often in crafts, but I think they may be used more often! 🙂
Looks cool. One of my bucket list items is to attempt something crafty 🙂
These are great ideas. I love looking at your craft stuff. This has inspired me for playgroup craft!
Awww… Thank you! You just made my day! I love crafting with the kids and sharing our ideas!
