This article provides step-by-step instructions to help your kids make a beautiful orange peel flower garden craft. Kids will love expressing their creativity while learning about gardening and nature!
Orange is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. It has a rich texture and the color orange draws its origin from the fruit itself. Today, we will be using the peels of these oranges in making some wonderful crafts. We will be turning them into beautiful flower petals and turning something ordinary into something exquisite. So, grab an orange, collect the peels, and let’s start making this craft!

Step 1: Cutting The Peel Into Pieces
Take a big orange peel and cut it into small pieces.
Step 2: Making The Petals
Shape the small pieces into petals as shown in the image. You need to cut around thirty petals. Also, cut six small circles out of the orange peel.
Step 3: Pasting The Peels
Take a black sheet of paper and cut it into a big circle. Now, take these petal shapes of our flowers, and with the help of a glue stick paste them on the sheet next to each other as shown in the image.
Step 4: Completing The Petals
Paste more peels next to each other with no space in between to make the flower shape. The peels pasted should be five in total. See the picture for reference.
Step 5: Pasting The Small Circle
Paste the small circular peel in the middle of the petals to complete the flower. It should be pasted with the white side on the top.
Step 6: Pasting Another Flower
Similarly paste five more peels, with just one difference, the peels should be turned upside down, i.e., the white side needs to be on the top, and then pasted on the sheet as shown.
Step 7: Completing The Second Flower
Paste the circular peel in between the petals with the orange side of the peel on the top.
Step 8: Drawing A Stem
Paste four more flowers on the sheet following the steps shown above. Three of these flowers should be white and the other three need to be orange as shown in the picture. Take a green sketch pen, and draw a stem for a flower.
Step 9: Drawing More Stems And Leaves
With the help of the green sketch pen draw lines below all flowers. These lines should be as long as the sheet below these flowers. Also, draw some leaves on the stem.
Step 10: Making The Honeybees
With the same pen, draw a lot of leaves on these stems as shown in the image. Now, take two eye-shaped peels and paste one on the top left side of the sheet and another on the top right side of the sheet. Take a white pen and start drawing two petal-like shapes above the peels you pasted in the previous step and two antennas on the left side and a sting on the back. Now draw black lines on these peels. These two peels will be our bees in this lovely garden of flowers.
And that’s it! Our Orange Peel Flower Garden Craft Is Ready!
