How to make a Sunflower with Craft Sticks
- Jumbo Wooden Craft Sticks
- Craft Paint in Light Green and Yellow
- Pink Chenille Stems
- Brown Craft Foam
- Black Buttons
- Craft Glue (we used a glue gun and glue sticks)
- Permanent Marker
- SUNFLOWER PATTERN
Measure and cut 16 jumbo craft sticks in half with scissors.
Basecoat the front and sides of the jumbo craft sticks with yellow craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
(You can use markers or crayons rather than paint, if desired)
Download and print the Sunflower Pattern, then cut the circle out with scissors.
Trace the center of the Sunflower onto brown craft foam. Cut out with scissors making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
You could also use heavy weight colored cardstock or cardboard instead of craft foam for this project.
Starting at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, attach half craft sticks to the center of the Sunflower with craft glue.
Add four additional craft sticks in between the original four.
Continue by gluing eight additional half craft sticks to the center of the Sunflower.
Fill in the remaining spaces with half craft sticks, until the Sunflower is full with petals.
Flip the completed Sunflower over and attach a variety of shapes and sizes of black buttons with a glue gun a glue sticks.
If you do not have buttons, use rhinestones, pom poms, or even small dots from a paper punch.
Measure and cut one jumbo craft stick in half with scissors.
Basecoat the front and sides of the jumbo craft sticks with light green craft paint.
Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Attach the full jumbo craft stick to the back of the Sunflower for the stem, with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue the half craft stick Sunflower leaves to the stem.
Enjoy your craft stick sunflower craft!
