A bou­quet of flow­ers for dis­play

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES -

CRE­ATE your own bunch of flow­ers from a few sim­ple items. You will need: Sty­ro­foam Cup Paint Paint­brush Straw Bead Scis­sors Craft glue

How to cre­ate:

Start by cut­ting slits from the top of the cup to the base leav­ing 3cm. The slits should be equal in size.

You can also cut ac­tual flower petal shapes by cut­ting “tri­an­gles” down­wards.

Care­fully bend each sec­tion back to make flower pe­tals.

Paint the flower and al­low to dry.

Poke a hole in the cen­tre of the bot­tom of the cup and stick a straw through it.

Thread a bead on the end of the straw for the cen­tre of the flower. Cut the end of the straw pok­ing through the bead into slits so it looks like the mid­dle of the flower.

Glue the bead to se­cure.
