Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Water bottles
  • Scissors
  • Fabric Paint – it’s much thicker than washable paint, so it works better here…but, be careful with clothes. ๐Ÿ™‚ * Check out this DIY smock for protecting clothes. 
  • paint brushes
  • Yellow pom-poms – about 1/2 inch wide
  • low-temperature glue gun with glue sticks or fabri-tac glue
  • green straws – try to find the ones with flexible ones
  • green construction paper

 

Now, on to the fun:

  • Cut the ends off of the water bottles and dry completely
  • Paint the inside of the bottle ends and let dry
  • Cut some little leaf shapes out of the green paper

  • Trim your straws to the desired length and glue to the back of the bottle end – I put a dot of glue at the bump (technical term) ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Turn the bottle end around and use glue to add the yellow pom-pom to the indention (middle) of the bottle bottom and leaves to the straws

  1. I do crafts with Seniors at our local HiRise and this month we’re going to make your water flowers

    • That makes me so happy. Thank you for letting me know that this craft is serving others. I love it.

  2. Hi. How did you glue the straw to the flower part?? Doesnโ€™t seem that it will hold?? Doing this with my kindergartener for recycle art project..

    • Hi Cat. I used a low-temperature glue gun. I glued the top of the straw to the very center of the water bottle bottom. It helps if you can find flexible straws. You can bend them toward the spot you are aiming to glue them to.

      I just grabbed the water bottle flowers out of my craft cabinet to take another look for you. They are still intact – even after all these years. I will snap a picture today of the back showing exactly where to glue the straws and upload it to the post.
