For the daffodil you will need
Pale yellow crepe paper for petals
deeper yellow for the center trumpet
brown crepe paper to encase the bud
olive green crepe paper for stem and leaf
very pale green or white tissue (or crepe) paper for center
plastic covered garden/floral wire
Elmers type glue
scissors to cut paper (not your mother's best sewing scissors!)
something to cut the garden wire
Step 1: Let's make it!
Cut a 12 inch length of garden wire and twist a one inch square of pale green or white tissue (or crepe paper) round one end.
Spread glue from center of the paper to a corner (a).
Lay the tip of the wire in it (b).
Fold the upper half diagonally over. (c)
Fold the right hand half over to the left hand side and glue (d),
Then twist and glue round wire (e).
Step 2: Fold and frill!
Step 3: Blow your own trumpet!
Cut a piece of darker yellow (with the grain of paper as arrowed in 4).
Fold in half and trim the cut edges level and curve round to form a tube.
Overlap the side edges and join all four layers with glue. Frill the top.
Gather the folded edge tightly, and with your fingertips form a bell shape. Open the lower edge and put glue behind the gathers. Lower the stem through the trumpet so that the lower edges of the trumpet and yellow center are level. Re gather and press very tightly to stick. (Re-shape the trumpet, as you have probably squashed it!).
