My daughter had several projects to complete in the school holidays - one of which was to make something out of recycled objects.
Her first thought was to use drinks cans( we have plenty of those to recycle!) and make a windmill. But after checking it out on Google, they seemed quite difficult to make, so we tried flowers instead!
We cut out different sizes of blooms with the spellbinder blossom set and decorated some of the layers with glitter glue and smooch paints.
Then we fasten them together with a brad and sellotaped the flower to some old knitting needles.
Leaves were cut out of green cardboard.
The vase was made out of an empty bottle of Aspalls cyder ( my favourite) with the label covered with a piece of recycled envelope and finished off with an old cerise ribbon
