Cupboard Crafts & Experiments: Kandinsky Circle Flowers

Cupboard Crafts & Experiments: Kandinsky Circle Flowers

Supplies:

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil (optional)
  • Button or foil (used gum wrapper works well)
  • Six different colors of construction paper or different color paper ads

Directions:

  1. Pick a color of paper and cut a small circle (about 2" diameter). You may also draw a circle first with your pencil and then cut it out.
  2. Take the first circle and place it on another color. Holding the first circle, or glue it down with a small dab of glue, cut around the first circle, just a bit bigger (1/2" bigger for example). Repeat this process using four more different colors.
  3. Before you fully glue your circles together, decide whether you want to cut fringe around the circle by cutting small slits around the circle's edge.
  4. Arrange your circles on top of each other, small to large. Finish your flower by gluing a button to the middle of the flower or even a recycled foil (gum wrapper) circle.
  5. For the stem, cut a thin strip of green construction paper or recycled greenish paper. Cut a leaf or two and glue to the stem.
