Choose from 6 flower cut out templates that are either pre-colored in fun bright hues or blank and waiting for your (or your kid’s) creative touch!
Do you have a black thumb? (The opposite of a green thumb for all of you non-plant killers out there.) Or maybe you live in a place that isn’t conducive to growing flowers. Either way, if “real” flowers aren’t in your future, you can still enjoy their vibrant colors year-round with these free printable flower templates.

And with a little extra creativity, I bet you can figure out ways to incorporate these printable flower template PDFs in educational activities for your kid. For example, you could have your kid count them or develop fine motor coordination by coloring a blank flower template or cutting out flowers.
So without further ado, let’s tip toe thru the tulips and other free flower templates!
Printable Flower Template with 6 Rounded Petals
These 6 petal flower templates with rounded petals look a bit like daisies. To me, these just say “spring flower template!” You’ll notice that most of the other printable flower template patterns are a bit more abstract; they don’t necessarily resemble any particular flower. This allows you to exercise a lot of creativity, but I couldn’t resist including this solidly spring flower template. 🙂

Yep, you can have your own indoor garden!
Pointed 6 Petal Flower Template Printables
This 6 petal flower template is similar to the previous set except with pointed petals instead of rounded petals.
Heads up, all 6 sets of templates in this post feature:
- Two large and two small flower templates so you can find the right size for your project.
- A pre-colored and an uncolored blank flower template. If you’re pressed for time, such as when decorating for a party, opt for the pre-colored flowers. If you need a specific color or want to use these as coloring pages for your kid, snag the blank flower template.
Detailed Printable Flower Template PDF
The more intricate petals on these free flower templates is what really sets them apart. They seem both a little elegant and a little exotic. Plus, the extra detail can make this printable flower template pattern more of a challenge for your kid if he or she is coloring or attempting to cut them out.
Bonus: While coloring has mental and cognitive benefits in and of itself, if you really want to challenge your kid consider using printables to get him or her more familiar with the ABCs, writing, spelling, and reading. You can do all of that while sticking with a spring flower theme thanks to this bubble letters flower letters alphabet!
Simple Flower Template Printable
If a sweet and simple flower template is what you’re looking for, look no further. This set of printable flower template PDFs makes me think of so many things—flowers, the sun (as kids sometimes draw it), and fluffy clouds. See, with a little imagination, these large and small flower templates can be used for so much more than flower related activities! 😉
This simple flower template seems soft, cute, and a bit whimsical. It instantly made me think it could be good décor for a spring baby shower! If you’re hosting a baby shower here are some of my favorite things to include:
- DIY flower centerpiece decorations – These easy and adorable pieces can be made in pretty much any color so they work even if it’s a gender neutral baby shower.
- Printable heart templates cut outs – Use a combination of the flower cut out templates and the heart cut out templates to decorate the shower on a budget.
- Printable diaper raffle tickets – Choose from 10 different options; these are a great way to make sure the mom-to-be gets plenty of diapers!
- Butterfly pretzels – Both salty and sweet, you can’t go wrong with this treat!
- Flower pretzel bites – Similar to the butterfly pretzel snack but in a flower shape and with M&Ms.
- Springtime Mason jar cake – If the gender of the baby is known, instead of multiple colors, opt for just pink or blue cake.
5 Petal Flower Template Free Printable
This 5 petal flower template free printable could simply be used as a coloring sheet or you could go above and beyond and turn it into a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day gift. Here’s one idea:
- Print the larger of the blank flower outline templates. You may even want to blow it up a little more before printing. I’d also recommend using a thicker, more durable paper than your standard printer paper.
- Have your kid color or otherwise decorate the free printable flower template. Psst! Don’t worry too much if he or she colors outside the lines on this printable flower template pattern, you’re going to cut the flower out in the next step.
- Cut out the flower outline template. You could also let your kid tackle this step if you feel confident in his or her cutting capabilities.
- Find an existing photo of your child (or take a new photo and print it). Cut out his or her head in a circle shape.
- Paste your child’s photo in the center of the free printable flower template.
- Using green construction paper, make a stem for the flower and attach it to the flower cut out template.
Congrats, you just created an everlasting flower that you can give to someone (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, etc.) that’s got a picture of your kid on it! You could easily repeat the steps above and create a whole bouquet of picture flowers.
