Tissue Daffodils

Flower Crafts

These tissue daffodils are super quick to make, and when you make a bunch of them they look really nice!

These can be displayed in a vase as a bouquet, or tied to a gift package. These are a good craft for children, since they are fast and easy to put together. All you need is yellow tissue paper and a green "bendy" drinking straw.

Things Needed:

  • Yellow tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Thick marker or other similar sized object
  • Green "bendy" straw
  • glue


1. Begin the tissue daffodils by cutting out a 5 inch x 5 inch square from the yellow tissue paper.

2. Fold the square of tissue paper in half, and cut along the crease to make two rectangles.

3. Place one rectangle aside for later. With the other rectangle, place a thick marker (or another similar shaped object) along one end, and roll the tissue paper around it. Make sure to leave about half of the tissue paper hanging off the marker, and twist this overhanging tissue tightly around the marker, as shown.

4. Take the second rectangle of tissue paper and fold it in half. Then fold it in half again, and then once again.

7. Line up the thick marker along the petal edge and roll the petals around the marker, like you did with the first sheet of tissue paper. Twist the ends of the tissue paper again (HINT: wet your fingers to make the ends twist more tightly).

8. Cut off part of the short end of a green bendy straw. Add a drop of glue to the inside of the straw, then stick the end of the flower into the straw, and allow to dry.
