This DIY Daffodils tissue paper💐bouquet can be a perfect Mother's Day gift! All you need to make these awesome 🌼flowers is tissue paper and pipe cleaners.
To make this craft, we are referring to a Tissue Paper Flowers Craft book (buy here), which features incredibly simple-to-make tissue paper flowers that look good enough to fool the bees.
The book has clear and easy to follow instructions, and it comes with 75 sheets of brilliantly colored tissue paper and variety of green pipe cleaners for stems.
How to make this Daffodile bouquet Craft: ✂️🔸📌poke 🔸slide 🔸
- layer paper at least four-fold and cut out a shape as shown in the book above,
- poke one end of a pipe cleaner and slide the cut-out papers,
- roll a bead the other end of the pipe cleaner and make a knot to resemble a"male" or pollen-bearing part called the stamen,
- slide all the papers towards the nub and slightly scrunch.
The book offers various ways you can make your Daffodils.
I personally do not like fresh cut-flowers (the entire demise process in front of my eyes is kind of depressing). I prefer orchids in a pot, but these Daffodils made by little hands with love would brighten my days for many more years to come!
You can always cut a bunch of Daffodils as a Mother's Day gift, but harvesting hand-made Daffodil flowers that will defy nature's cycle makes them even a better gift!
Daffodils And Men ~ Poem by David Taylor
Daffodils dance upon the breeze with such sweet scented ease,
as men walk past with minded cares not seeing dancing everywhere.
They walk, but do not know how to dance as the daffodils they bend and bow,
they dance to life with no furrowed brows and need no one to tell them how.
This flower craft is very similar to the one 🌻 below, which Adrian made when he was 3 yo ~ same process ~ ✂️🔸📌poke 🔸slide 🔸🌼crunch!

This purple 💐bouquet of flowers Adrian made using the same technique as in Van Gogh Inspired 12 🌻Sunflowers craft. Again: all you need is tissue paper, pipe cleaners and a sprinkle of creativity! We also knotted a bead in the middle of the flower to resemble a"male" or pollen-bearing part called the stamen.
