This gorgeous pipe cleaner daffodil craft embodies that soft warm woollen quality of pipe cleaners and brings a bright touch of Spring into the home.
I have a real soft spot for cotton pipe cleaners as a crafting material. Their soft bobbly texture really adds something quite special to crafts and at times looks as if the finished piece had been knitted or crocheted. But you can use any style of pipe cleaner to make these
Materials Required To Make A Pipe Cleaner Daffodil
- 3 yellow pipe cleaners
- 1 green pipe cleaner
- 1 orange pipe cleaner
- PVA (white) glue
I prefer to use 15 cm pipe cleaners to craft the Daffodil Flowers with, as the 30cm length creates a much heavier and bigger flower head. If you use 30 cm secure the head with a larger twisted green pipe cleaner stem to give it extra support.
How To Make A Pipe Cleaner Daffodil Flower
Bend all the yellow pipe cleaners in half to find the middle. Open them almost fully again and twist them together in the middle to make a six point star.
Roll the end of each pipe cleaner into a snail shape until you have five petals. Cut the uncurled 6th bit of pipe cleaner.
Thread the green Pipe cleaner through the center of the flower and back again. And secure with a twist at the back.
Finally curl the orange pipe cleaner to make the center cup of the daffodil, glue it in place, and leave it to dry. Tacky white glue (PVA) works fine for these but you could use a hot glue gun as well.
Not only are they lovely decorations for the home but they would make a wonderful gift for Mothers Day, teachers and friends.
