How to Make Pencil Scrape Art Flowers

What you need:

  • different colored pencils (we recommend using elastic pencils for this project because their chips don’t crack easily)
  • sharpener
  • colored pencils (blue, yellow and green)
  • glue
  • black lining
  • small pieces of cardboard
  • seeds – optional

Materials used

Instructions step by step

Grab your sharpener and start making circular pencil scraps.

You can make several circles for one flower. Go nice and slow.

Step 1

Make a few flowers using different colored pencils.

Step 2

Apply a little glue to the underside of the cardboard.

Step 3

Attach the beads and wait until the glue hardens. You can use a variety of other materials or just draw grass.

Step 4

Apply some glue to two flowers and place them on the paper.

Wait for the glue to dry.

Step 5

Use a pencil, marker, or black pencil to draw the stem and leaves.
