Wood Sunflower Craft

Supplies Needed:

  • Wooden sunflower sign
  • Yellow scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Stuffing
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Rose gold textured paint
  • Paint brush
  • Bottom of mesh trash can (optional)
  • Light brown spray paint (optional)

Instructions:

I love sunflowers and was so excited to do this craft! I bought the wooden sunflower from Hobby Lobby. It was 50% in the spring items collection. It also already has a twine hanger on the back.

First, I traced the two sizes of petals on the flower with paper and pencil. I cut out the two templates and cut out the scrapbook paper in those sizes. I used a variety of designs and shades of yellow for the petals.

I used the bottom of a mesh trash can for the center. The trash can is from the Dollar Tree and I had already cut out the bottom with wire cutters for a craft last week. I spray painted it a light brown color.

I painted the wooden sunflower center with the Decoart textured rose gold paint. While the paint was still wet, I put the spray-painted mesh circle on top of it so that the paint dried around it, allowing it to stick to the center. I think the center would look great even with just the textured paint, which is why I listed the mesh circle as optional.

I wanted to give the petals a little bit of dimension. I put a small amount of stuffing in the center of each wood petal and glued the scrapbook paper on top of it. To glue the scrapbook paper, I put a small amount of hot glue along the edges of the cut-out paper and placed it on top of both the stuffing and wood petal.

Below is the picture of the final result! Hope you give this a try! Leave a comment below if you do or if you have done a similar craft!
