Series 5: Halve a Circle #2 - Wallflowers




It's here. Did you notice? Spring has arrived. And while the flowers have yet to show their pretty faces, their time is oh so close at hand. But I'm terribly impatient. So I'm giving them a little nudge... Are you with me?

Come here.

Cut up some of these...


Make some of these... hee hee...


Glue a half dozen of them together to make these...


And hang them everywhere like this...


The garden varieties will follow suit in no time, I betcha.



In the meantime you have a lovely day, and I'll see you again soon!

  24. Hi Gingi, Michele here. To attach the flowers to the wall, I simply took a small piece of sticky tape, attached the end to one of the petals (on the inside) and then attached the other end of the tape to the wall. This makes it look like the flower is floating, and you can't see the tape. Hope this helps!

  31. I work with Seniors (85+) who have many limitations to say the least but they love creating art. Your craft will not only be do-able by some of them but (and most important) they will love the end result. The only change for us is we will be mounting the petals onto card stock and adding paper stems & leaves. Oh, this will be so much fun.

    Finding arts & crafts that require limited skill and end up looking great for ADULTS (not kid look) to be pleased with is a challenge. This will be a joy to do because I can already hear the OH'S & AH'S. Thank you.
