If you are a crafter, there may be times when you would like to add a few flowers to your project. If you happen to find yourself without a stencil, you can draw an easy flower that can be used for all of your works of art. Hibiscus is the flower that is commonly seen placed behind the ears of the women of Tahiti, and it is also a simple flower to draw. The hibiscus flower consists of just a few petals, and a single stamen on its main body that can be easily illustrated.

Things you need
Decide where you would like to place the hibiscus flowers on your art piece. Mapping out your drawing space will help you to determine how big or small to make your flowers.
Begin your drawing by drawing the four main petals of the hibiscus flower. Together, they will resemble that of a four-leaf clover, with an additional petal added between the top two petals.
Add the stamen to your hibiscus flower. The stamen is the part of the hibiscus flowers that produces its pollen. It is also considered the male part of the flower.
Highlight the stamen of your hibiscus drawing by darkening it with your pencil. Of course this part is optional; you can later colour it with marker or paint.
Finally, add the accents to the hibiscus with your pencil. The accent lines can be easily added with smooth, swift strokes of your pencil.
Tips and warnings
- You may want to consider drawing the easy hibiscus flower and making it into a stencil that you can trace each time you want to place a flower or two on your craft projects. To do this, draw the flower on a stiff piece of cardboard or mylar and cut it out.
