Pretty foam flowers!

Getting Crafty with Miss Kaboodle is always fun and recently we decided we would try our hand at crafting some pretty foam flowers!

We had lots of fun making these and it only took a small amount of forward prep,

What you’re going to need;

  • 3 foam sheets in the colours of your choice andΒ one in green.
  • popsicle sticks either stained or painted green.
  • scissors.
  • aΒ pencil.
  • a glue stick.

With one colour of the foam sheets, cut out one large circle and one small circle, with the other foam sheets, draw large M shapes, over and over down the longest side,

cut around the M shapes and through the middles to create your ‘petals’ – create the petals in as many colours as you like. Using the green sheet of foam, cut out leaf shapes, you only need a few of these.

Using the glue stick and foam petals, glue them around the edge of the largest circle. layer them if you want to, I did! it helps to cut the petal into points along the straight edged bottom, this helps them sit better in a circle.IMG_0328

Once you’re happy with the look of your petals, cover the middle by gluing the smaller circle onto them at the centre then flip over your flower and glue the stick into position on the back of the flower. Using one of the leaf shapes, Glue one onto the popsicle stick where you would like and Voila! Your Pretty Foam Flower is complete!IMG_0321

    Very pretty. We love crafting here in our house. Most of the time its “paper” craft; origami and kirigami and making things out of cartons! This is a lovely idea, we might try it sometime. My 4 year old in particular would love it. πŸ™‚

      That’s awesome πŸ™‚ my little one, she’s three, had a ball making these πŸ™‚ I think it’s the gluing more than anything, a sense of accomplishment because she is able to actually do it herself πŸ™‚ crafts are always so rewarding!

        I think so too. The only thing is; throwing them out! I hate having to throw out things my kids make. I take photos and keep a collection of photos to show them one day. I also keep some of their exceptional work or things with added meaning; such as cards they make us for birthdays etc. Just this weekend I had to throw out 52 of their crafts. ;-(

        Oh I know that feeling! Isn’t it awful! Unfortunately I’ve had to get a bit cold hearted with my daughters art. She’s a really creative being and at school she is always painting and colouring. By the end of the week I always end up carrying home half a tree worth of paper she’s drawn on and painted, some I keep. You know, the really pretty and lovely ones and some I have to throw away because they’re covered with enough glitter to make me want to scratch my eyes out! I do love some of her art work and you’re right, it’s always the cards that are the Hardest! I will say, I keep a scrap book of her art work, I’ll link you to it now πŸ™‚ I keep all the better things she makes in there!
