Make a Clay Poppy!


  • Red and Black Clay (we used Crayola Model Magic, but you can use any sculpting clay)
  • Toothpicks
  • X-acto knife
  • Rolling Pin (Optional)


Roll out the red clay approximately 1/8 of an inch thick

Cut out 4-6 petals (We thought poppies had 3 petals, oops! Thanks google!)

Leave the bottom of the petals thick but thin out and spread the top of the petals

To make the petals look more realistic, pinch, pull and create dips in the edges.

Overlap the bottoms of the petals and press together

Overlap the sides of the petals and press together

Gather a small amount of black clay, and form it around a toothpick

Once the toothpick is covered stick one end in the center of the flower

Repeat step 7 and 8 until satisfied

Let clay dry
