These pipe cleaner flowers stemmed from the shamrock streamer that I had done for St. Patrick’s Day. Both require your fingers and pipe cleaner, that’s it! Is there a museum somewhere that is dedicated to pipe cleaners and pom-poms? There should be. These are a kid-crafters dream!
It’s so simple.
Start by wrapping the pipe cleaner around your pinky in the following order: bottom, left, top, right. I put my pipe cleaner on my left hand so if you use your other hand, reverse the order.
After the pinky is looped, run the pipe cleaner under your ring finger and twist it around the top using the same order as above.
Continue with the rest of your fingers – you’ll notice that they will all “pinch/collect” towards the center to make the flower shape.
When done, slip your fingers out and wrap the remaining tail around the first loop you made to secure both ends.
Finish it off by gluing a pom-pom to the center of your flower and call it a day! You can throw them in your spring sensory bin, make pipe cleaner stems, or create a bouquet. So adorable!
