Valentine’s Day Craft: Making Roses

kids' crafts

Roses. They’re the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Right? Your child can craft her own flowers, giving them to a friend or family member for this loving holiday. Instead of making 3-D flowers, this rose art activity uses felt to create flat (but textured) versions. Your child can create her own artwork to frame or make a cute card to send!


  • Craft felt (in red, pink and green)
  • Scissors
  • Card stock paper (in white or light pink)
  • Clear-drying school glue


  1. Cut the red and pink craft felt into ovals. These will become the rose petals. Your child can size them as big or as small as she wants. She can create over-sized flowers by cutting petals that are as large as her hands. If she chooses to make mega roses, you’ll need poster board instead of card stock paper.
  2. Make flower stems. Your child can cut thin strips of the green craft felt.
  3. Glue the stems onto the paper.
  4. Arrange the ovals to create roses. Overlap the bottoms of the ovals (positioning the ovals vertically) and spread out the top parts. Your child can make red roses, pink ones or combination flowers.
  5. Glue the ovals (rose petals) onto the tops of the stems.
