I love Sunflowers, they are such a wonderful sign of summer. Apparently they symbolise happiness and optimism, and also represent longevity, love, and loyalty which is kind of lovely! As a plant for children to grow they are just so impressive when they get taller than the gardener and the way you can watch their faces turn to the sun is quite magical. (As long as you don’t grow them along a fence and then discover that they always seem to be turned to your neighbours garden so they get all the benefit!)
I’ve collected some fun summer sunflower craft projects together, all sorts of different crafts so there is something for everyone.
17) Paper Plate Sunflower by Non Toy Gifts
18) Sunflower Beanie by The Purple Poncho, crochet by Carolyn

Why not make a sunflower of some sort with these sunflower craft ideas and enjoy the summer vibe of a sunflower all year round?
If you don’t fancy doing your own DIY sunflower craft I’ve found a LOAD of beautiful sunflower themed items on my favourite handmade platform Etsy. I had such fun curating this list with lots of lovely jewellery, home decor and gift ideas.
