Sunflower seeds will make this fall art project really stand out. If you’re lucky enough to have sunflowers in your yard, pick up some seeds for this project.

However, if you don’t have any, you can buy seeds at many stores, just go to the “pet” section (or pet store) and you will see bags of seeds to feed the birds. Take what you need and feed the birds the rest, we’re sure they won’t mind.

What you need

  • construction paper for base (any fun color)
  • yellow paper

Step-by-step instructions

Set up your background paper. We use half a letter size / A4 sheet of paper.

Cut a long strip of green paper to make a sunflower stem.

Paste it on the background.

Cut a circle from yellow paper (or use a large paper punch) and glue it onto the background paper.

Cut out leaf shapes…

Clip it aside…

And stick the other side onto the base paper, touching the stem.

Next are the petals. Do quite a lot.

Fold them down the middle, this will give your sunflower creation more depth.
