Tyvek Flowers

Fun and easy, Tyvek flowers celebrate the spring. Here are some of the materials we used: Tyvek envelopes, acrylic paint, scissors, stamens, hot glue, and wooden skewers. I made my own templates by googleing “flower templates” and printing them on card stock. Once you have painted both sides of each flower part, you can snip a small slit in the center of each one, and drive the skewer through the flower. Use hot glue to secure the underside of the flower to the skewer, and squeeze a bit of hot glue in the center of the flower to secure it to the skewer as well (add stamens at this point). You can also make sorta curly flowers, if you have a heat gun. Have fun!

Note: Remember Tyvek is sensitive to UV light, so try and keep flowers out of the sun.
