Basket of Blooming Flowers

Basket of Blooming Flowers craft

Create a cheery bouquet in a simple basket with no-mess Color Wonder™ Paint and Markers. These handcrafted flowers make a touching gift from a young child!

  • 1.

    Accordion-fold lengthwise a piece of Crayola Color Wonder™ Paper. Unfold and refold it with accordion folds going the other direction. Unfold the paper.

  • 2.

    Paint along the fold lines with Color Wonder™ Paint. The paint on the folds will be darker and look almost like a woven basket! Air-dry the paint.

  • 3.

    Fold the painted page in half and roll it into a cylinder for a basket. Tape edges together. Stand basket upright.

  • 4.

    On more Color Wonder™ Paper, paint several flower heads and petals. Make big, bright flowery shapes. Tear out the flowers so they have ruffled edges. Tear a tiny hole in the center of each flower.

  • 5.

    Color long, wide strips using Color Wonder™ Markers in stem colors such as green and yellow. Tear and fold these strips into thirds for stems. Stick one end of each folded stem into the hole in a flower. Bend the end. Tape flowers together underneath the blossoms. Place stemmed flowers inside the basket.
