Last fall I planted over 100 tulip bulbs in my front yard and I waited anxiously all winter long for them to emerge from the ground. Guess what? They are all in bloom and they are even more gorgeous than I imagined! Now that it’s spring and all of the beautiful bulbs are in full bloom it’s a perfect time to celebrate spring time with a pretty tulip craft. This paper straw tulip craft is bright and beautiful just like a real tulip and it’s crazy simple to throw together for an afternoon craft.

3. Unfold the tulip flower and fit your green paper straw in and out through the holes of the tulip.
