Crazy Q-Tip Flowers

The boys LOVED making our crazy Q-tip flowers.  They look cooler in "real life" than they do in the pictures.  Regardless, the boys had fun and its always interesting to try out something new.

This is what we did:

  1. I purchased a pack of Styrofoam balls at JoAnn's.  (pack of 12)
  2. I broke a bunch of q-tips in half.
  3. The boys dipped the ends of the q-tips in washable paint.
  4. The boys pushed the q-tips into the balls.
  5. Little Guy used the q-tips to paint the Styrofoam first.
  6. I pushed the end of floral wire in the styrofoam for a stem.
  7. We put water beads into a vase to add more color and then put our "flowers" in the vase.
Fun.  Its worth a try. 


  1. It is an informative post.

  2. If you are a Flower Lover, then you know the joy of arranging flowers, and having fresh, beautiful flowers in your home all of the time. As well you can write an essay for many other flower lovers on this topic. This source would be beneficial for them.
