Today was a great day at the school! This is a craft that all of the kids (ages 6-13) enjoyed doing.
Here’s ours in the recycled newspaper woven baskets we made last week.
~Now for the tutorial~
Cut 2 sizes of circles from tissue paper. You could recycle wrinkled tissue paper from presents and packages because they will get wrinkled while making these flowers. You will need at least 12-15 circles for each flower. I made mine approx. 3.5 inches for the small circle, and 4 inches for the large circle. You also need a pipe cleaner.
stack the small circles on top of the large circles and punch 2 (tiny) holes in the center.
Loop one end of the pipe cleaner through the holes, going up and then down.
It will look like this on the back of the flower
Twist the short end around the long end of the pipe cleaner
Scrunch each circle~ one at a time~ untill all of the petals are scrunched up.
you did it!
