Flowers From Egg Cartons

Two Kid friendly egg carton projects.

Tutorial can be found HERE
Second a simple version.
Make Tulips with Old Egg Cartons

This is an easy project kids can do by themselves or with very little help, and these fs make a great Mother's Day present. Make a bunch for a lovely Spring bouquet!

Kid Tested!
You will need:
Clean cardboard egg cartons
Green chenille (pipe cleaners)
Elmer's glue

Cut the egg carton into separate cups, leaving some of the middle "pop-up" sections. Cut the main cups into the pointed shape of the tulip petals. With the point of the scissors or a sharp pencil, poke a hole in the bottom of each cup. Paint and decorate each cup however you like.

Cut the little center "pop-up" sections between the egg cups into small pointed shapes that will go beneath the tulip cups. Poke a hole in the center of each and paint green.

When the pieces are dry, poke a piece of green chenille through the holes. Tie a loop on the end in the cup so it can't pull back out, and add a dab of glue between the two sections. Shape the chenille into leaf shapes and leave a few inches at the bottom for the stem.

Bread Dough Roses

Design by Oak Leaf Studio

Materials Needed:

4 tbsp Aleene's Tacky Glue (Gold bottle, use silver bottle for a porcelain look.)
4 slices white bread NO CRUSTS.
4 tbsp Corn Starch.
2 tbsp Cold Cream
2 tsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp White acrylic paint. (you can use any color you like, but some have more pigment. To get the color you want you will have to experiment with the amount to add)


Mix all together in container until it begins to stick together.
Empty out on a board and knead until smooth.
Wrap in Saran wrap and store in fridge.
Use as clay. Cut with cookie cutters, sculpt with it, make beads - anything you like!
Air dry. Do not bake.
Finished articles can be painted and varnished.
This recipe will keep for ages. I tested a ball wrapped in Saran and kept in the fridge, after two months it was still as good as new.
Add the colour as it is more pleasing to work with and also makes a good base for painting.

Fabric Flower brooch

Looky looky I found another flower tutorial.
Wow what a beauty
I see she used a button for the center and think this would be great with an old rhinestone earring or small rhinestone pin as the center.

A seashell Flower

By Brianna from Dutch Harbor, AK

This is a gorgeous, romantic, and elegant craft which can be applied to a number of other crafts as an enhancement, although it is completely stunning on its own! The shells (if you live near bodies of water) are free, which is the best part!
Approximate Time: Depending on the size of rose you wish to make, this craft takes from 20 to 30 minutes.

10-15 cleaned oyster shells per rose
3 sticks round, all-temperature mini-glue sticks
1 low-temperature mini-glue gun
1 small to medium auger, nautilus, or snail shell per rose (cleaned with dish soap and water)
Optional: shiny, clear, indoor spray paint/lacquer (This makes the iridescence of the shells and their colors really shine through!)
Load glue gun with glue stick and plug in to warm up.
While glue gun is warming up, arrange your oyster shells from largest to smallest.
Find the two largest, (pieces are just as good as full shells) and glue ends together, so that the shells rest on your work surface opposite from one another.
Find the next two largest from the ones left, and repeat the process, only having turned your base about forty-five degrees.
Now that you have a complete base to work from, start finding the medium-sized shells, which usually have more of a curve to them, like the inner petals of a rose.
Take those and glue them after turning base another forty-five degrees, these two should angle up about twenty to thirty degrees, to mimic the opening of a rose bloom.
Rotate your rose another forty-five degrees and use 2-3 of the next smaller size shells, gluing them in at a slightly steeper angle, almost closing the bloom.
Take your snail, auger, or bit of nautilus shell and stand it upright in the middle of your rose, gluing and holding it there until it is cooled.
Once all of the rose has cooled securely, take it outside and place on a piece of cardboard. Spray with lacquer lightly, making sure to get in-between the layers of petals. (Don't go overboard, or the spray paint will loosen the glue and your rose with fall apart easily.)
Let dry as per instructions on your paint can.
Display in a nice copper bowl or hot-glue to another project such as one involving sea glass or drift wood; a mirror or vase.

Decorated your winter gardens this year with DIY flowers made from recycled soda cans by CanarsieBK.
You’ll need the following:

1 bottle cap
Razor Scissors
Drill or nail

How to Make Flowers Using a Soda Can:
1- Use razor (and scissor if necessary) to cut off the top of the soda can around the ridge line.
2- Starting from the top of the can use your scissor to cut down about 1/8 -1/4 inch from the bottom.
3- Make cuts all the way around the can. Get creative with the cuts if you’d like by zig-zagging. Once all of the cuts are made. Fold all of them outwards.
4- Take the drill or nail and poke a hole in the bottle cap and the bottom of the can.
5- Fish string through the hole of the top of the bottle cap and continue it through the bottom part of the can.
6- Tie knots on either end to loosely secure the bottle cap to the can.
7- Tie a stick to the opposite side of the soda can that the bottle cap is on.

Fancy Coffee Filter Corsage

 Thanks to AmazingMoms for this idea!

Create them this unique and beautiful Fancy Coffee Filter Corsage that can last years.

All you need are:
•3 Coffee filters
•1 Pipe Cleaner
•Acrylic or Watercolor Paint
•Paint brush
Hot Glue Gun
•Optional Embellishments: doilies, felt balls, broken jewelry, decorative paper

To create, simply follow these steps:
1.Start with 3 coffee filters.

2.Flatten them out with your hand.

3.Fold the filters like a fan. One fold towards you, one away, until you reach the end.

4.Once you have your folds all done, cinch the center with a pipe cleaner.

5.Then gently, open up each “petal” one by one.

6.The next step involves paint. Choose any color or colors of acrylic or watercolor paint, that you want the edges to be.

7.Water the paint down as much as you can, while still retaining the color.

8.Then slowly drag your brush along the edges, and watch the watery paint bleed onto the filter petals. This is my favorite part…

9.Next, cut off the ends of your pipe cleaner, so that you can hot glue a ribbon on to the back, to serve as your wrist tie.

10.The next part involves any creativity and imagination you want to incorporate into your corsage. Use papers, doilies, ribbons, felt balls, bits of broken jewelry or anything you wish, to embellish your corsage… I used wrapping paper for leaves and I hot glued doily edges here and there for extra frill. I used hot glue for this entire project. Make sure not to let children use a hot glue gun without adult supervision.
Wala ! Flower Corsage
