Mess-Free Glitter Flower
Glitter… Some people love it and some people despise it. I am one of those rare people who land somewhere in the middle.
I love how it adds shimmer, but I don’t like that it adds to my clean up time. This is why I like doing projects with glitter glue!
Spring is a great time to create tulips. Which is why this craft works well for several April preschool themes.

How to make this glitter craft idea
Start by creating your very own tulip template. Drawing a tulip can be easy if you follow this trick. Using a marker the color you would like your tulip to be, draw a lower case “Y”. Add a mountain peak in the middle. Then the letter U underneath! Just like that, you have a tulip! Use your scissors to carefully cut out the tulip shape, starting with a snip in the middle.

Add stems and grass on the bottom of your paper. Line up your tulip template at the top of your stem. Outline again in the color if or your tulip and then in matching glitter glue. Pull the glitter to the center using a craft stick. Lift your template to see your pretty, shimmery tulip! Repeat with as many tulips as you like for your picture.Add some shimmer to the grass if you like and then allow to dry.
These would make a great card to send in the mail or a pretty picture to hang in the house for spring. You are going to enjoy making this pretty mess-free glitter flower art project!
