Snails are so interesting! Did you know that when they feel threatened, they will hide in their shells?

Another interesting fact about snails is that their main priority is food and hiding from predators. This craft may not be a natural snail, but it’s super fun to make because it helps us celebrate these interesting creatures.

How to make crafts from paper rose snails

What you need:

  • pink and yellow construction paper
  • drag
  • glue
  • black marker
  • wire or thread

Step-by-step instructions


Flatten the pink paper.

Go ahead and cut the piece in half.

Start blowing it like a fan to start making rosettes.

You will glue the last part of the fan.

Take both parts that you folded like a fan and put them together.

Fold everything in half, as you see in the picture.

Open it up and tie a string in the middle. Cut the wire down to remove excess.

Once the wire is in place, you will begin gluing it.

This time you will tape the ends together as shown here.

To complete the rose, you will tape the ends together to form a circle.

Make sure everything is super tight and secure!

Place the rose on the yellow paper as a placeholder and draw the snail’s body around it!

After cutting the snail, you can stick the rose piece on top of the snail.

Be sure to emphasize!

The final product will look like this and you can add a little smile and eyes to the snail.
