Handmade spring flower

You'll need

  • - Light-colored paper tray for fruit
  • - Lemon or orange net bag
  • - Empty yogurt pot
  • - Gravel or sand
  • - Cardboard or colored paper
  • - Felt-tip pen
  • - Scissors
  • - Glue

How to make a flower with recyclable materials

  • - Print and cut out the central circle of the flower and its largest petal.
  • - Take now your paper tray.
    Cut out the central circle and the number of petals sufficient to be glued on the edge of the circle on both sides.
  • - At this point cut a series of shorter petals and glue on both sides between the previous petals.
    Leave a space for the stem.
  • - Cut two pieces of lemon net bag, turn each into a little ball and paste on the central circle on both sides.
  • - Prepare the stem by superimposing two long thin rectangles. Paste them and then the whole stem on the lower part of the flower, covered by the other petals.
    I used green colored parts of my tray to give the impression of a true stem. But you can also color it.
  • - Color with the marker the edge of each petal.
  • - Fill your yogurt pot with sand or pebbles.
    I used light blue sand that I got at home.
  • - Surround your pot with colored paper or cardboard and glue its ends.
    If necessary, do some pleats to accompany the shape of your pot.
  • - Insert your flower.
  • - Your Easter or spring decoration is ready! :))
