It doesn't get any easier than a glue stick, tissue paper and this flower craft printable at Mess for Less.

I love easy crafts I can set up for my little kids to make on their own, and these simple DIY tissue paper flowers with instructions at Mess for Less are perfect. Glue stick, crumpled tissue paper and her free, printable flower page are all you need.

Aw, this pretty Bluebells flower craft at Buggy and Buddy has us dreaming of Texas.

My grandmother grew up in Texas and always talked about the bluebells in spring. Since we don’t get them where I live, I’ll be saving our old egg cartons — the cardboard kind — to make this gorgeous bluebell egg carton craft at Buggy and Buddy instead. What a clever idea!

 

This field of daisies flower craft at Ishtar Olivera proves that fingerprint art doesn't have to be twee.

Fingerprint crafts have a tendency to end up, well, more cute than collectible. But this awesome field of fingerprint flowers at Ishtar Olivera shows that you can make them stylish enough to frame with just a little bit of added detail. Hey, maybe your tweens aren’t too old for fingerprint crafts after all.

We’re blown away by these stunning rainbow paper dahlias (also at top) at Craftaholics Anonymous. Hang them from the ceiling or mount a half-dozen on the wall. Who needs expensive artwork when you can a cool flower craft like this?

Hyacinths! We love them, and this pretty hyacinth flower craft at I Heart Crafty Things.

I want my kids to make a whole garden of these pretty purple hyacinth paintings at I Heart Crafty Things. No special supplies needed here — just an old water bottle and paint. Don’t you love crafts that don’t require you to have an entire supply room stocked at home?

 

Can't find Poppies at the florist? Make this poppy flower craft at Pintsized Treasures at home instead.

Poppies are my one of my favorite flowers, but so hard to find at the florist. Instead, I’m thinking a bouquet of these pretty poppies made from cupcake liners at Pint Sized Treasures would really brighten up my kitchen. Go ahead and have the kids make extras to give to their grandmothers or their teachers for a nice “thinking of you” gift.

 

Wow, take your crafting to the next level with these amazing origami flowers at Go Origami.

I’m pretty sure there’s no way I could make this amazing Carambola flower origami that I found at Go Origami, but a crafty teen with a lot of patience probably could. And once they figure it out, they will be able to wow all their friends — and us. Because, whoa, these are very cool.

 

 

Got an empty water bottle and paint? Then you can make this easy flower craft at Crafty Morning.

We found another great use for those empty water bottles: making bottle-print flowers at Crafty Morning. Load up a paper plate with bright, springtime colors and let your kids go to town. Might look messy, but the project will make your kids so happy.

 

We can't wait to try this gorgeous paper plate flower craft at Pink Stripey Socks with our tweens.

This paper plate flowers tutorial at Pink Stripey Socks is a little more complicated, so it’s probably better suited for tweens and teens — or get ready to offer a lot of help to your younger kids. But boy, are they stunning. I might even go big and hot glue a bunch of these to a cardboard circle for a vibrant wreath I can hang inside to brighten a wall in the kitchen or the playroom.

Whoa: this DIY egg-carton flower wreath craft at Homemade Serenity is amazing.
Speaking of wreaths, the colorful DIY egg carton wreath at Homemade Serenity (from our post on easy Easter crafts using household objects and supplies) isn’t the type of project you can tackle in a half-hour at the kitchen table — unless you have a whole lot of kids helping you. But even if you don’t invite all your kid’s friends to this crafting party, we still think it’s worth the time it would take to paint every single cardboard petal. This one is so pretty. And could last for years.
