Here’s another Workshop Wednesday from Maggy at Red Ted Art! [Emma]
You may have seen some of my other crafts shared on Playpennies – there were dinosaurs and ambulances and monsters. But how about the little girls in our life? And with spring in the air, there is nothing better than a “crafting” with flowers. This is a wonderful craft to do, when you are out for a walk or at the playground or sitting in a park... grab those dandelion “weeds” and make them into something beautiful.
You may find them tricky at first (as with anything new), but they are really easy!
We were lucky that a good friend from Sweden was visiting and she showed us how:
- Place 2nd flower UNDER the 1st flower.
- Twist stem over
- Tuck it behind the 2nd flower.
- Place 3rd flower under the first two flowers
- Twist stem over…
Try and get the flower heads as close to the stem and together as possible. You can pinch off any of the remaining stems if it gets too bulky. Interweave other wild/ weed flowers for more colours and prettiness. Done!
