Here's how to create a Sunflower from Popsicle Sticks

STEP ONE

To begin the DIY Craft Stick Sunflower, gather all supplies. Measure and cut 16 jumbo craft sticks in half with scissors. Basecoat the front and sides of the 32 half jumbo craft sticks with Mustard Yellow acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

STEP TWO

Download and print the Craft Stick Sunflower Pattern from the bottom of this post, then cut out with scissors. Trace the center of the Sunflower onto brown craft foam. Cut out with scissors making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. You could also use heavy weight colored cardstock or cardboard instead of craft foam for this project.

STEP THREE

Starting at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, attach half craft sticks to the center of the Sunflower with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add four additional craft sticks in between the original four. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.

Continue by gluing eight of the additional half length craft sticks to the center of the Sunflower.

Fill in the remaining spaces with half craft sticks, until the Sunflower is full with petals. Layer the craft sticks around the flower head until all the spaces are filled.

STEP FOUR

Flip the completed Sunflower over and attach a variety of shapes and sizes of black buttons with a glue gun and glue sticks. If you do not have buttons, use rhinestones, pom poms, or even small dots from a paper punch.
