Valentine’s Day Vase with Flowers Craft for Kids

I think that people generally fall into one of two categories when it comes to Valentine’s Day. They either love it or hate it. I’m definitely one of the people who love Valentine’s Day and all things Valentine’s Crafts.

This Valentine’s Day Vase and Flower Craft is perfect for kids of all ages and will make a great gift or fun project when you need something fun and creative to do.

Plus all of the varied materials in this flower and vase craft allow for plenty of sensory exploration throughout your creation process.

Supply List:

  • Toilet Paper Roll 
  • Construction Paper 
  • Tissue Paper – the kind used for gift bags
  • Paint & Paintbrush
  • Glue or Glue Stick 
  • Scissors 
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Cardboard, Paper Plate, or Poster Board – for the base

Assembly Instructions:


Paint the TP roll any color desired and let dry 

Using the cardboard, paper plate, or poster board, cut out a small circle just a little larger than the TP roll

Cut heart shapes in multiple colors and sizes from the construction paper 

Decorate the TP roll and the base in the same or a complimentary design as desired

When you have finished decorating, glue the TP roll in the center of the base and let dry


Cut the tissue paper into several 4 inch squares

Use 2 pieces of tissue paper for each flower, lay flat in your hand and push finger in the center and twist at the bottom as shown to form the flower

Wrap one end of the pipe cleaner around the twist of the flower to form the stem 

Repeat this process to make as many flowers as you would like

Arrange the flowers in the vase and display them proudly! If giving as a gift, you may also add a small treat and a note inside the vase as a special surprise.
