Spring Flower Wreath~Bostik Challenge



This month the bostik challenge box is all about flowers and spring. We are into April and the garden is finally looking colourful with daffodils and tulips. Hopefully with the lighter evenings if the weather improves we can enjoy the out doors more. At the moment the weather is awful so this Sunday when little M came over to craft we could not go out to the park or the garden as its been raining non stop.
Little M wanted to make some flowers to take for her parents but when we looked in the craft box there were already so many pretty flower cut outs we decided to use those and make a pretty flower wreath with them as a gift. Little M really enjoyed making this wreath, it did not take very long to make so we also made a Spring flower picture with hama beads and card for her bedroom which we will share in our next post.

To make the flower wreath you will need:



Two sheets of stiff card
Some green crepe paper cut into 1 inch strips
Assorted sized cut out flowers
Piece of string approx 12 inches long
Bostik Glue
Scissors
Pencil.

How to make the wreath:

1. On the card using a side plate as a template draw a circle.
2. On the same card using a smaller plate draw another circle.
3. Cut out the larger circle using the scissors.
4. Cut out the smaller circle using the scissors so your card will look like a doughnut.
5. Repeat the process for the second card and then stick the two doughnut shaped cards together using the Bostik Glue.




6. Secure one end of the green crepe paper strip with glue onto the card and start wrapping the green paper all around the card, secure the final end with glue.
7. You should have a green crepe paper ring now.
8. Fold the string in half and tie a knot at the loose end. Loop the string onto the ring to make a hanging loop.


9. Using the bostik glue arrange and stick on the flowers in any pattern you desire.



This craft is suitable for young children although, adult supervision may be required for using scissors. If you like this project check the link below for more art and craft projects, that you can do with your children.
