We love paper plate crafts and this paper plate sunflower is a simple but fun one. It’s pretty easy and just involves sticking everything into place.

Paper plate sunflowerYou will need:

  • Paper plate
  • Brown tissue paper for the middle of the flower
  • Yellow card for the petals
  • Green card for the leaves
  • A wooden stick (if you don’t have one – try using a strong straw)
  • Cellotape and glue

Stick down all the petals first, and then the centre of the sunflower.

This paper plate sunflower was made by Mr Z.
