How to Draw a Sunflower
Learn how to draw a sunflower and use it to create a balanced layout with a large, medium, and small one. Adding flowers peeking in from the sides will help you create some interesting layouts.
Prang Crayons are softer than other crayons, so they sometimes look like oil pastels, and Crayola has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that are a bit richer and warmer.
Draw a Sunflower by beginning with the center of a large flower and adding a row of petals around it. Trace with a marker and color. Add tips of more petals, stems, and leaves. Draw a leaf by beginning with a small flower and adding petals to each one.

How do you make a sunflower look good in a vase?
Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle and eight inches from the base when snipping them, and place them in a vase of warm water when ready to display. Unlike many other flowers, sunflowers do better in warmer, not room temperature tap water!
Why are my sunflowers drooping in the vase?
Sunflower leaves are drooping: This means the sunflower plant, or vase of sunflowers, is dehydrated. Sunflowers don’t need to be overwatered, but they do need to be watered regularly. Give them a good watering and they should perk up.
