Eco Friendly Plastic Cup Flowers

By:

Eco-friendly plastic cup flowers are great easy crafts for kids. They're so easy to make and the best thing is they also count as green recycling crafts since you can use old plastic cups and other materials already lying around the house!

Plastic Cup Flowers

Materials:

  • Plastic drinking cups
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • White craft glue
  • 12" dowel or stick
  • Items to decorate with (beads, buttons, pom poms, tissue paper, paint, etc)

Instructions:

  1. Use a pen (parents please!) or other fairly sharp object to poke a hole into the side of the cup, about one inch from the bottom.
     
  2. Cut slits halfway up the cup with your scissors. Bend slits outward.
     
  3. Lay cup on table with bottom of cup facing upward, this is the center of your flower.
     
  4. Use anything you have on hand to decorate the center. We used pom poms, buttons, tissue paper squares (wrapped around a pencil eraser) and pony beads. Use white craft glue to adhere them to the center of the flower and set aside to dry.
     
  5. Warm up the hot glue gun.
     
  6. Insert dowel into the hole you made in the side of the cup earlier. Insert the dowel until the end of it hits the other side of the cup. Hot glue in place.
