Paper Spring Garland Craft for Kids
Refresh the classroom by making a gorgeous spring flower garland. To create this paper spring garland, we will be cutting flowers out of colored construction paper.
Add in a few leaves, and this spring garland will wake up any space.
Let’s take a look at the materials you will need to create a stunning spring garland.
- Construction Paper
- Embroidery Needle
- String or Yarn
- Hole Punch (optional)
Make the flowers:
- Start out with a square piece of construction paper. Make a square by folding down one top corner to the opposite edge, forming a triangle. Cut off the excess paper (below the triangle). Then, unfold the triangle to reveal a perfect square.
- Now that you have a square piece of paper, fold it diagonally in half to form a triangle.
- Do it again to make a smaller triangle.
- Do it one more time for an even smaller triangle.
- Holding the folded corner, cut out a petal shape on the opposite side that you’re holding. Feel free to cut rounded petals, pointy petals, or both.
- If you desire, punch a small hole or two out of the center of the flower to make a place for the string later.
- Unfold, and you have a flower.
- Repeat the process until you have enough colorful flowers for your garland.
- Fold a square piece of construction paper in half.
- Cut out a simple arc shape as you hold the folded side. If you’re feeling really creative, try your hand at more complex leaf shapes.
- If you would like, punch a hole or two out of the leaf to make a place for the string later.
- Unfold to reveal a leaf.
- Repeat until you have as many leaves as you want.
- With the embroidery needle, “sew” the paper flowers and leaves onto the string or yarn in an alternating pattern until you have a beautiful spring garland!
Note: For younger children, it may be helpful to use a hole punch and punch a hole into each flower and leaf to make stringing easier. That’s totally up to you and what you think will work best for your little crafters.
