We have piles of sticks outside the front of our house so every time I get out of the car I end up bringing a pile into our garden.
To make these foam flowers you will need:
– Washi tape
– Plant pot
– Florist foam
– Glue gun
– Pom poms
Then we decorated them in a variety of ways.
We used washi tape, glue and glitter or acrylic paint to decorate the sticks.
We also cut some leaves out of foam and stuck those on.
Then used PVA glue to stick on sequins, don’t forget to put another layer on top so they don’t fall off, also do this with glitter to stop it shaking off everywhere!
Then we stuck pom poms in the middle of some of them.
I put some florist’s foam in a plant pot to stick the flowers in, this one was from Ikea and didn’t cost very much at all.
They are a great way to brighten up the house and would also make a great present.
We had fun making them and it’s so nice to see a boring old stick turned into something so pretty!
