Flowers are the most popular gifts given to mums and grandmas for Mother’s Day (on 30th March) often they can be quite expensive so why not make your own flowers complete with a vase, for just a few pence using items that can be found in your kitchen cupboard.
What you will need
- Plastic/Carrier Bags (different colours)
- Drinking Straws
- Sticky Tape
- Clean Empty Jam Jar
- Kitchen Foil
- Small Bowl/Cup for a template
How to make your flowers
Flatten your plastic bags and using your template draw circles on them, they can be on the edge or in the middle of the bag.
Cut out the circles, they do not have to be perfect.
Put 2 or 3 circles together they can be the same colour or different colours.
How to make your vase
Put your jam jar in the centre of a large piece of kitchen foil.
Bring the edges over and into the jar, press the foil firmly against the sides of the jar.
Cut off the carrier bag handles and tie them around your jam jar, trim the ends and scrunch to form a bow.
Arrange your flowers in your vase; you can cut the bottoms off the straws to give different heights.
Why not have a go, they don’t take long to make, Thomas will be giving these to his Grandma, I am sure she will love them.
