Foil Flowers

I do love doing mixed media art projects.  These foil flowers fit right into that category.  They are simple to do and allow kids to explore process art.

Make sure that you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own foil flowers you will need:

  • Cardboard (I used a finished cereal box)
  • Tin foil
  • String or wool
  • Sharpies (or something similar)

Start by either drawing a flower onto your cardboard and cutting it out, or if your little one is old enough then let them do this part too.


Wrap the wool/string around the flower.  Try to encourage them to get the string to go around the flower at random points rather than all in the middle.  My youngest charge wrapped her string around so that it was literally all on top of each other round the middle.

Next cover the flower and string in tin foil.  Try to smooth it down on the front side.  This makes the string really stand out.

Then colour your foil flower in.

If you enjoyed doing these foil flowers, be sure to check out my paper plate parrots and pressed flower cookies.
