Sunflower Door Design

Sunflowers have a way of making everybody feel happy. Start with this simple sunflower concept and let your imagination run free with ideas for craft materials.


Yellow and Green Construction Paper

Paper Plate

Brown Paint



Craft Glue


Black paint


This first sunflower was super easy to make. I cut out petals and the kids used brown paint to paint the bottom of a paper plate. The kids used q-tips and black paint to add the spots.

With the second sunflower I cut the petals like before and the kids painted the paper plate brown. However, we used some bubble wrap and black paint to make a pattern on the plate.

I am a Christian wife and home-schooling mama striving to be a Proverbs 31 woman! I am blessed with 5 kids, including one princess and two sets of twin boys! In my "spare" time I enjoy scrapbooking, though blogging seems to be taking its place. I currently have three main blogs. This is my family/homeschool/craft/everything blog. The Homeschool Resource List is a collection of all the free online resources that I have found for homeschoolers. The "Brown Like Me" Book Review is a collection of books featuring "brown" characters. I also write for Totally Tots, which is a blog dedicated to those with toddlers.
