Colourful Paper Flowers for Cinco De Mayo • TeachKidsArt


These colourful paper flowers for Cinco de Mayo are enjoyable and straightforward to make. Whereas orange marigolds are customary for Day of the Lifeless, you’ll discover Cinco de Mayo flowers in each shade of the rainbow.

The annual celebration of Cinco de Mayo (held annually on Could fifth), commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire on the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The Mexican folks have a good time this vacation with colourful fiestas, or events, with household and buddies.

Dahlias, the nationwide flower of Mexico, are sometimes used for Cinco de Mayo decorations. These giant, pom pom formed flowers are available in practically each shade you may think about.

My colourful paper flowers will make the proper “fake” dahlias on your Cinco de Mayo adorning!

Make your personal colourful paper flowers for Cinco de Mayo

You Will Want:


  1. Fold the lengthy fringe of your tissue paper in half, in order that the quick ends meet.
  2. Fold it in half once more, the identical course. You must have an extended, skinny rectangle.
  3. With one of many quick ends dealing with you, accordion fold this rectangle into folds which might be ½” to 1” huge.
  4. Subsequent, twist a pipe cleaner across the center of your folded accordion, twisting the ends right into a stem.
  5. Minimize about ¼” off every finish, then minimize a “V” form into every of the ends.
  6. Pull out your accordion in order that it types a circle.
  7. Fastidiously pull up the primary layer of tissue paper as far up as it can go, throughout the circle.
  8. Repeat with every layer till your flower is fluffy and full!

You can also make flowers in quite a lot of sizes simply by following these basic instructions. If you happen to save present wrap tissue (like I do!) making flowers is an ideal use for these items that will not look “recent” sufficient to wrap a present.

Strive layering completely different colours to make multicolor flowers. These colourful paper flowers make enjoyable present toppers instead of a bow, too!
