The Daisy
The Daisy is your Basic Pipe Cleaner Flower from this you can make all kinds of others by just changing 1 or 2 steps, the colors or the length of your pipe cleaners.

The step by step instructions given here are for a larger daisy because it's usually easier to learn something when it's bigger

Larger Roses

For larger Roses follow the same instructions as above 


  • Use 1/2 length pipe cleaners instead of 1/4's

  • Use a folded green pipe cleaner for the stem so it is sturdier and wrap the entire stem to hold them together and to add more strength

Easy ??


Honestly I struggled with shaping this one


For the buds/sprouts/new growth I simply use 4 scrap red pipe cleaners folded in half and wrapped them in a green pipe cleaner

These tulips were not my favorites. I struggled with them to make the look right and still fell short. The sprouts helped a little. I did try to make them bigger using 1/2 stems. Didn't improve the tulips BUT ....

If you don't bend the red ones in all they way, it makes something somewhere between a Gerbera Daisy and a Spider Mum. Which is kind of cool. Maybe I'll try it with different colors, a brown center ???
