Flower Collage Crafts

A collage is a fun craft that kids of all ages can enjoy doing. Collage is an easy and better way to use up all types of scrap papers to make a decorative design.

To make a flower collage theme design, you will need to know how you want your flower collage to look like. And If the paper flower will be in a paper vase or not, whether the vase will be on top of a paper table or not. Just use your imagination to create something nice.

Collage simply means cutting out papers in the shape of anything, so that when you finish sticking them together it can give you the look of the real object or objects you want to replicate.

You can color the papers you want to use with the color of how the real object look like. For example you can color green for a leave collage. Or you can buy assorted color papers and simply cut or tear them up for use.

You can use scissors to cut the paper flower edges. You can also use your hands to tear the papers so that it can have a rough edge effect.

To start making flower collage, you can first get your collage supplies from any arts and crafts shop near you. These supplies for collage craft designs are relatively inexpensive.

  • Strong clear glue
  • scissors or craft knife
  • white card

How To Make Flower Collage

Step 1

Cut out the table top and vase from the colored paper using scissors. Make sure you tear or cut many papers in the shape of plants, that is, cut out flower and leaves shapes.

Step 2

Get a large sheet of paper and stick the table top and vase pieces onto it. Use glue to stick them on it.

Step 3

Use glue to stick down the torn out pieces of paper flower and leaves shapes on the paper vase in an orderly way to make them look like the real flowers in a vase. Leave the collage craft to dry.

You can hang this collage craft work on your wall to decorate your home. This is also a very good gift idea.
