Paper plate roses

Paper plate roses

These pretty paper plate roses are simple enough for little kids and they look almost as good as a real rose. A cute Mother's Day craft for kids and mums.

What you need:

  • 1 x paper plate
  • paints, crayons, pencils or coloured marker pens
  • scissors
  • stapler

Number of players:



Paint or colour your paper plate first. 

When it's dry, trim the edge of the plate with the scissors, so that you are only working with the flat part in the centre.

Cut a rough spiral into the remaining circle. It doesn't have to be even – wobbly is a bit better anyway.

Finish the spiral at the centre with a small circle (about 1.5cm diameter).

Now go to the pointy bit, where you started cutting, and curl the spiral around your finger (see video).

Keep curling until you get to the small circle at the end. Now pull the pointy bit through the centre of the rose and staple it to the small circle at the end of the spiral.
