10 Craft Ideas To Do With Tulip Coloring Pages
Tulips are pretty flowers that cheer anyone’s day; children can color them with all the bright shades they love.
Here are 10 inexpensive, interesting, and enjoyable crafts to do with those finished pages.
1. Decorate the Classroom With Spring
This easy craft is perfect as a classroom activity. When the students have colored their tulips, they should be cut from the page, with the tulip separated from the stem and leaves.
The stem and leaves should be carefully glued to a long drinking straw with tiny dots of Krazy glue.
The tulip cutout should be folded vertically, accordion style, and a hole punched through the folds.
This way, it can be slid through the top of the straw to create a unique ornament.
2. Make a Homemade Easter Card
Tulips are ideal items for Easter cards, and youngsters can get as creative as they want with this fun craft.
A plain piece of construction paper or poster board should be folded in half, and the tulip cutouts should be used to decorate the card.
After coloring their flowers, the youngsters can embellish their artwork with glitter, felt, crêpe paper, or puffy paint.
Make sure the child leaves enough room to write a Happy Easter message!
3. A Tulip Bouquet
For this unique craft, the child should color 7-8 single tulips and carefully cut them out, cutting wide around the stems.
The stem sections should then be glued to pipe cleaners with wood or craft glue.
Next, a plain piece of construction paper in any color the child prefers should be fashioned into a cone and a craft bow glued to the front.
The tulip cutouts should then be placed inside the cone for an authentic-looking tulip bouquet!
4. Decorate Window Boxes
If you have window boxes that could use a makeover, your child’s tulip coloring pages are perfect.
Let the youngster color as many as needed, depending on the window box size, after which they should be cut out and sealed in contact paper.
Rubber cement or invisible glue best attaches them to the front of the window boxes, and a coat of acrylic spray should be added to seal the artwork.
5. A Tulip Pencil
Creating a fun and decorative tulip pencil is easier than you think! Once the tulip is colored, it should be glued to stiff cardboard and cut out.
Using a green pipe cleaner, one end should be stapled to the bottom of the flower, and the rest of the pipe cleaner should be wrapped around the entire length of the pencil in a spiral.
If your child is creative, they can add leaves made from construction paper or glue wiggle eyes to the flower to make it comical.
6. A Colorful Centerpiece
This craft requires a piece of styrofoam, some bright-colored tissue paper, green pipe cleaners, and coloring pages.
When several tulips are colored, the tops can be cut from the page and stapled to green pipe cleaners, serving as “stems.”
The pipe cleaners can then be pushed into the styrofoam square wrapped in colorful tissue paper to create a pretty centerpiece for a table.
7. A Vintage Tulip Clock
Everyone remembers those old leaf clocks, so this is a new twist on an old favorite.
To make adorable wall art, have the youngsters draw an abstract vine with plenty of leaves, sketching a clock in the middle.
Using two cutouts from the tulip coloring pages, the clock should be given tulip “hands” which can easily be attached with paper fasteners. This ensures they are movable.
This cute tulip clock can be displayed on a wall, and the youngster can change the time whenever he or she chooses!
8. Tulip Bowtie Desktop Ornament
For this simple, enjoyable craft, have the youngsters color and cut out a large tulip and glue a small craft stick to the back side of the cutout.
They can then make a “bowtie” from two triangles cut from green construction paper.
This is easily accomplished by folding each triangle in half and then connecting their pointy ends together at the bottom in the middle to form a bowtie.
The craft stick should then be glued behind the bow, creating a colorful desktop ornament that will stand independently.
9. Crêpe Paper Fun With Tulips
For this craft, the coloring page should be left in its entirety so that it can be framed later.
Once the youngster has colored the tulip, small pieces of tissue or crêpe paper can add texture to the flower for a unique 3D look. The more layers, the better!
Green tissue paper can then be used for the stem and leaves.
The child can sign his or her name with a marker or puffy paint, and the craft becomes beautiful framable artwork.
10. Tulip Ponytail Holder
If you have a little girl who wears ponytails, she may enjoy making her own tulip ponytail holder.
All that’s needed is the tulip coloring page and an elastic ponytail that can be found in any discount store.
Once the tulip is colored, it should be glued to cardboard, cut out, and laminated with three coats of acrylic spray.
A small hole can be cut in the tulip through which the elastic can be threaded, and your youngster has a one-of-a-kind hair accessory.
