Artificial Silk Hibiscus Flowers in Assorted colors
This is a project I came across that looks fairly easy to do with children, by yourself, or some adult friends. I like doing my projects alone, because it’s my “ME” time. It’s very convenient if you already have a shredder at home, but if not you can still shred the paper by hand. Plus shredding paper is a good relaxation technique.
Next, you soak the paper in water over night so that it’s nice and squishy.
The following day stick the paper in the blender with water making a paper milk shake.
Once you got it nice and pasty you will throw in some small seeds of your choice, mix up real good so that it is evenly distributed.
Then comes the messy part. It really isn’t “that” messy, it can be done inside the house over a sink, but if it’s a beautiful day I would suggest doing it outside. Pour the mixture into a mould, this one is home made out of a picture frame and some wire stapled on one side. The mixture is spread out evenly on the wire, and set out to dry.
When the paper is nice and dry you can take it out and cut it into shapes of your liking and gift them to someone special like your mother. What a lovely way to reuse materials and add some flowers to the earth.
When your planting a garden it’s always good to mark the different types of plants, and these wooden spoons are a fun unique twist
Supplies for making Garden Markers
I had my children help me paint pictures of the vegetables on the wooden spoons, and labeled each one with a marker.
Just stick it in the ground next to the matching plants.
There is a whole month dedicated to crafting, How Amazing is that! What better way to celebrate than to post my very first craft blog.
Everything to make it came in the kit, [Star-flake beads, Faceted Beads, Wire, Safety Pins] and it was fairly easy to make using the instructions provided, as long as you have a pliers and wire cutter tool. Actually this was the first time I have ever done a safety pin/wire type craft. It was not difficult at all. It was pretty fun, and my kids got to help with having the next bead ready for me to put it on the wire. My six year old was able to practice his pattern making skills. At the end of making this , you can insert a strand of mini lights to make it sparkle.
