If asked to associate a flower with happiness, which flower would you pick? To me, no flower can brighten someone’s day quite like sunflowers. And now, thanks to the free printable sunflower patterns below, you can enjoy these cheery flowers all year round! Check out these fun sunflower templates!
What is it about sunflowers that inspire such joy? Is it their vibrate color, with petals ranging from pale yellow to fiery red, their oversized heads, their height, or something else altogether? Whatever it is, you can now get (or give!) that vibrancy and cheer by taking advantage of the free printable sunflower pattern templates in this post!
Now, I know that you can purchase hothouse sunflowers year round but a paper sunflower template offers a few advantages:
- You don’t have to make a trip to your local florist or do a bunch of research online. Just turn on your printer!
- These sunflower pattern free printable downloads are free. So they’ll make your budget happy too!
- Real sunflowers will (sadly) wilt and die but a sunflower template can last forever!
And while you may think real sunflowers will have a bigger impact on your mood, trust me, receiving a paper sunflower template that your kid has hand-colored or decorated is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!
Printable Sunflower Pattern Template: Turn to the Sun
The first printable sunflower pattern has its face turned toward an (unseen) sun, just as a real sunflower would. The fine details, like the lines on the petals, make this a suitable coloring page for anyone, including older kids, teens, and adults.
If you haven’t taken the time to color since you doodled in your college notebooks, it’s time to break out those crayons! Coloring is a great way to unwind after a stressful day, and unlike some other options, it’s guilt (and calorie) free.

Printable Sunflower Pattern Template: Come a Little Bit Closer
One of the things that’s so charming about sunflowers are their vibrantly colored petals. This paper sunflower template allows you to focus on that aspect of this happy flower. This sunflower pattern is a little less detailed than the first one, meaning it may be better suited to young children who haven’t quite mastered coloring in the lines on smaller projects.
Tip: When coloring this printable sunflower template, don’t limit yourself to just a bright, almost primary yellow. Sunflowers actually come in a variety of colors, and their petals can come in just about all shades of yellow, orange, and red. Don’t believe me? Go ahead, Google it; I’ll wait….
Printable Sunflower Pattern Template: It’s in the Details
These printables aren’t just for coloring; nope, you can also use them as sunflower drawing pattern! That’s right, you can learn to draw your very own sunflowers. Doing so will allow you to break away from these templates and eventually get more creative. For example, you could draw a whole field of sunflowers of different sizes and leaning different directions.
I think this printable makes the best sunflower drawing template because the details are so defined. To get started, place a thin piece of paper over this template and trace the sunflower. Do this again and again to build muscle memory; eventually, you’ll be able to draw sunflowers free hand!
These sunflower pattern free printable downloads are absolutely lovely, but if you want a little diversity in your paper garden, be sure to download these:
