These colourful, handmade paper towel roses are easy to create and make a thoughtful gift for students to give to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day, or any time of year!

Assemble Your Fabulous Florals Paper Towel Craft  

Please note that this activity will download as a PDF, and requires the following supplies:

  • paper towels
  • food colouring
  • paper straws
  • green string or yarn
  • tape or craft glue
  • decorative ribbon.

At least 3 hours before assembly, students will blot their paper towels with food colouring and let them dry. Then they’ll cut the paper towels into strips and twist them to form roses.

When your students are done turning paper into flowers, they’ll have a one-of-a-kind bouquet that never wilts—no watering required!
