These flowers come out looking so fancy no one will think they were a crafty kid project!
My daughter had a Luau Birthday Party and we wanted colourful, flower décor without a high price tag. We traditionally get pretty crafty in advance of her parties as she loves to be involved and I find the easiest way is to create a craft project for her.
All the supplies came from the dollar store:
1 Package of pre-cut mutil-coloured Foam Flower shapes (you could substitute pre-cut cardboard or card stock)
Fabric Flower Petals in various colours (it takes about 15-30 petals for one flower)
Starting on the outside, dab glue as you go to stick on one petal at a time. Go in a circular motion and keep adding rows until you get to the middle. Eventually you will have a beautiful flower!
I will admit, I got a little particular about my petals, trying to get them to line up perfectly. My daughter however just had fun and kept gluing – for the record hers were WAY better, more full and symetical than mine. Lesson learned – just be creative, don’t’ overthink it!
After the flowers dried we stuck them up all over the house in prep for the upcoming party. They added a touch of colour everywhere – very tropical!
