How to Make the Paper Capsicum Craft

Here are the steps to make a paper vegetable capsicum craft:

  1. Draw a large circle on the reconstruction paper to represent the capsicum. You can use a cup or a compass to trace the circle.

  2. Cut out the circle using scissors.

  3. Draw a rectangle shape on green construction paper. Ensure the rectangle is about twice the size of the circle you cut out earlier.

  4. Cut out the rectangle shape.

  5. Fold the green rectangle in half, lengthwise.

  6. Cut thin strips along the folded edge of the green rectangle, stopping about 1 cm from the other end. This will create the capsicum stem.

  7. Unfold the green rectangle and roll it up, starting from the uncut end.

  8. Glue the rolled-up green rectangle to the center of the red circle. This will be the capsicum stem.

  9. Cut out small triangles from the green construction paper. These will be the capsicum leaves.

  10. Glue the leaves to the stem.

  11. Use a black marker to draw dots on the red circle to represent the capsicum seeds.

Your paper capsicum craft is now complete! You can make multiple capsicums in different colors to create a colorful vegetable display.
