Supplies needed to make this easy spring craft
- flower windsocks printable template

- light green and dark green crepe paper
- extra strength glue stick
Instructions for making a flower windsock
Step 1: Download and print out the flower windsock craft template on colored cardstock paper. Print the flower stem and leaves page on green paper, the flower inside circles page on yellow paper and the flowers on pink, purple or red paper. Cut out each of the pieces from the template.
Step 2: Glue three flower stems on the front of a light blue piece of cardstock. Make sure to leave about 1-1/2 inches on the side of each stem to allow room for stapling the windsock together.

Step 3: Add glue in the center of each flower and glue one at the top of each stem. You might like to vary the height of each flower to add extra dimension to your craft. Then glue a yellow circle in the middle of each flower.
Step 4: Glue two flower leaves onto each flower stem.

Step 5: Turn your light blue cardstock paper over so the flowers are face down. Cut out six pieces of 18-inch green crepe paper and glue them on the bottom one-third of the back of your blue cardstock. We used a mixture of light and dark green crepe paper.
Step 6: Bend your flower windsock into a circle, connecting the ends together. Place two staples at the top and bottom of the windsock to join the ends together.

Step 7: Cut a paper strip handle that is 1-inch by 9-inches. Add a generous amount of extra strength glue stick on each end of the paper strip and attach it inside the top of the windsock for a handle.
Once the glue is finished drying on your flower windsocks, hang them up from the ceiling or a covered porch and watch them spin around in the breeze.
