I’m amazed at how many awesome Construction Paper Crafts there are. This easy paper daffodil DIY is simple and inexpensive to make.
Construction paper makes such pretty paper flowers. I was amazed at the quality of the white paper made by Crayola!
My husband taught Art in his first career adventure. Yes, he taught art from his little cart. He called it Art on a Cart!
His students made the coolest murals with construction paper. Here is the link to one of the kid’s projects. I used his idea and taught it to a bunch of elementary girls. I showed them the basics, and they ran with the idea. They were so creative, and the mural was amazing!
Today, I’m sharing my flower project. Choose to make a single Daffodil or a bunch for this cute spring wreath.

To cover a 12-inch grapevine wreath, I made 38 Daffodils. I made both white daffodils with a yellow center and yellow daffodils with a yellow center.
Grapevine Wreath (I used a 12 inch wreath)
Step 1 – Download and Print Daffodil Petal

Step 2 – Cut Out Petal and Circle Template
Step 3 – Trace Petal and Circle
Trace petal pattern onto construction paper with a pencil.
Step 4 – Layer Paper and Cut
I like to cut out as many petals as I can with my scissors. I cut about 5-6 at a time. Once the stack of papers gets too thick, the edges get a bit ragged.
Step 5 – Make Flower Base (cut out 38)
Make two petals as shown in the above photo. Fold the middle of the petals. Next, layer one petal on top of the other and glue it together in the middle of the flower petal.
Step 6 – Make Flower Center (make 38)
To make the center, cut out the circle template. Then using your wavy scissors, cut along the edge. Next, cut along the circle as shown. Starting with the outer tail, start rolling and gluing until you get to the center. Glue the rolled-up paper to the base of the circle.
Step 7 – Attach the Center to the Petals
Next attach the centers to the petal base. Then attach all your flowers to your grapevine wreath with a hot glue gun.
