I saw a gorgeous painting of poppies by Suzan Hazard while browsing the web late last night. Don’t ask me how I stumbled upon her website, but I’m glad I did! Anyway, after seeing the painting, I went looking for poppy crafts and found this one on Kaboose. It looked easy enough, and it was! This one requires some work from a parent (just like most crafts) but it can be done in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any black pom poms, so I substituted with black pipe cleaners in the center. You could use pom poms, buttons, or even a marker to make a circle! All of the directions are on the original craft page, but I decided to do a walk through as well since I changed it up a bit.
Materials We Used (for ONE flower):
- 2 Coffee Filters
- Red or Orange Paint
- 2 Pipe Cleaners – one green, one black
