You will need 5 things:
- Patty tins (different colours or patterns are great)
- Cotton wool balls
First, cut into the sides of the patty tins, like so:
Then, grab your glue and a paddle pop stick or paintbrush (or even stickytape), and glue a pipecleaner to the back of a patty tin and a cotton ball to the front.
Add some glue to the top of the cotton ball, ready for decorating with glitter.
Add glitter or a piece of feather or anything else interesting.
Make some more so you can create a whole arrangement to put in a vase.
You can also make rolled rose-like cupcake flowers, like this:
Stack a few patty tins together. Different colours:
Fold in half and roll gently. Then tape the edges together:
Once you have a few rolled ‘roses’, you can put a paddle pop stick or pipecleaner through the middle and out the small hole at the bottom point of the flower.
(We ran out of pipecleaners, can you believe it?!)
