To all the bookworms, you guys will really love this DIY Pipe Cleaner Flower Bookmark Craft.
If you love reading books, you know it is very frustrating when you get up to do something and then forget which page you were on. I used to fold the corners of my book’s page to remember where I was, but honestly speaking, that was such a bad idea. It left my pages creased. So using bookmarks for your books is very important.
If you read more than one book at once, it is very usual that you might get lost on pages. Also, it’s the back-to-school season now. I think this DIY bookmark craft project is a very good idea for kids who are going back to school.
So now let’s go to our today’s craft project. Collect all the listed supplies to make the DOY Pipe Cleaner Flower Bookmark Craft. The craft material we will be using for our today’s craft is easy to find in almost any stores nearby. You might already have all these tools and materials at home.

How To Make Pipe Cleaner Flower Bookmarks With Step-by-step instructions:
Step 1:Make Zigzag::
Select the color you want your pipe cleaner flower to be.
Take a 6 inches long colorful pipe cleaner. Use your fingers to bend the pipe cleaner into an equal zigzag shape. Make at least 6 folds since your flower will have five petals.
Step 2: Join The Ends::
Bring the ends of the zigzag pipe cleaner together, then apply hot glue on one and then join both ends together. Hold it on for a bit until the glue is dry.
Step 3: Pom-pom Pedicel:
Select a pom-pom you want to use as your flower’s pedicel.
I am using a small yellow colored pom pom. Glue the pom-pom in the center of the pipe cleaner flower.
Step 4: Make The Stem:
Take any green colored pipe cleaner. Measure how long you want your pipe cleaner flower’s stem to be.
I am taking a 5 inches long green pipe cleaner.
Step 5: Cut It:
Cut the green pipe cleaner in half. make sure both pieces are straight and equal.
Step 6: Glue The Stem:
Take one of the green pipe cleaner stems, and glue it on the back of the extended part of the pipe cleaner flower.
Glue the second pipe cleaner stem on top of the extended part of the pipe cleaner flower.
Step 7: Leaf:
Take another 4 inches long green pipe cleaner (same shade as before). Bend the pipe cleaner into an “U” shape.
Step 8: Glue The Ends:
Use hot glue to join both ends of the pipe cleaner flower’s leaf.
Step 9: Glue The Leaf:
Glue the leaf with the pipe cleaner flower’s stem to finish making your DIY Pipe Cleaner Flower Bookmark.
