Easter is a fun and creative time of the year to make unique crafts with your family and friends. One of the most popular craft projects for Easter is making paper flowers. These delicate flowers are easy to make and can be used to decorate your home or given as a gift to your loved ones. Here are some ideas for making Easter paper flowers.
- Tissue Paper Flowers
Tissue paper flowers are easy to make and can be used to decorate your Easter table. All you need is some tissue paper, scissors, and some wire or string. Cut the tissue paper into squares, layer them on top of each other, and fold them like an accordion. Then, tie a wire or string around the middle of the folded tissue paper, and trim the edges to form petals. Finally, gently separate the layers to create your tissue paper flower.
- Crepe Paper Flowers
Crepe paper flowers are also easy to make and can be used to decorate your home or given as a gift. To make these flowers, you will need some crepe paper, scissors, and wire or string. Cut the crepe paper into long strips, and fold them like an accordion. Then, wrap a wire or string around the middle of the folded crepe paper and trim the edges to form petals. Finally, gently separate the layers to create your crepe paper flower.
- Coffee Filter Flowers
Coffee filter flowers are another easy and inexpensive craft project for Easter. All you need is some coffee filters, food coloring, and water. Mix the food coloring with water and dip the coffee filters in the colored water. Allow the coffee filters to dry, and then stack them on top of each other. Pinch the center of the stack to create the flower, and then wrap a pipe cleaner around the bottom to secure it.
- Book Page Flowers
If you have an old book that you no longer need, you can repurpose it into beautiful Easter flowers. To make these flowers, you will need some book pages, scissors, and wire or string. Cut the book pages into petal shapes, and then fold each petal in half. Then, layer the petals on top of each other, and wrap a wire or string around the center to hold them in place. Finally, gently separate the petals to create your book page flower.

Lilies have been seen in art and literature as symbols of purity virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter. According to the Getty Museum, the white lily represented chastity in Renaissance manuscripts. Artists as early as the 1400s depicted lilies alongside the Virgin Mary. Paintings showing the Annunciation often include the Angel Gabriel holding a sheaf of lilies. In the Bible, Jesus is quoted as saying, “Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” (Luke 12:27).
Roman mythology has associates the White Lily with Juno, the Queen of Gods. Legend has it that once a portion of Queen Juno’s milk once fell on earth while she was feeding her baby. The spot where Juno’s milk was spilled was the first place where white lilies grew. The white lilies have been a fitting symbol for the greater meaning of Easter as they carry the message of joy, hope and life.
Gifting white lilies during the time of Easter to family and friends is the best way to remind that Easter is a time to rejoice and celebrate. Due to the connection of the White Lily with the resurrection of Jesus Christ and also because of its delicate form and snow white color, some Christians call it the “flowers of God”.
