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 and one in green.
- popsicle sticks either stained or painted green.
- a 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.
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!
