Need a cool decoration? Need a project your kid can make? This is definitely it. This is a quick and easy flower to make, and if you enjoy making things out of clay then this is for you. This flower is made out of Sculpey. You can find some here. I hope that you enjoy. Please vote for me as well.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need only a few supplies.

  • Purple Sculpey(any color you want)
  • Yellow Sculpey
  • Green Sculpey
  • Cutting tool (knife,sharp object)
  • Tube, for making the center of the flower
  • A hard round object for making an indent in the flower for the stem

Step 2: Making the Flower

Take your yellow sculpey and roll it between your hands. You do this to warm the clay up and make it form. Take your hollow tool, and press down cutting out a circle of your clay out. Take your tool and make an indention in the piece. This will be where your stem goes. Set this piece aside. Next you are going to want to take your purple (whichever color you used) and roll it between your hands. Flatten the ball out on the table trying to get the same thickness. I made mine about a centimeter thick. Take a cutting tool/knife and cut out the petal shapes. You should end up with 3 petals. Take the scraps and roll them up together. Continue doing this until you have 5 petals(depending on the size of the middle of your flower). Take your extra Sculpey and put it in a small baggie or something to store it in. You should save your remains, so that you can use them as well and save money.

Step 3: Assembling the Flower

Take your center piece and place the flowers in position around this. Where each petal touches press the edges together with your fingers merging the flower petals into one. Doe this all the way around. Make sure to turn the flower over and do the same on the back side. Take your green sculpey and make a stem for your flower. Once you are done with that, and are satisfied, place your flower and stem in a junky pan to cook. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F. Cook your flower for 25 minutes and then take out and let cool. When you are done, take you glue gun and in the indent that you made in the center flower put some glue. Press the stem into it's place and then add glue around the stem making sure it stays in place. Then you are done. Enjoy!!! Please feel free to ask questions, comment, and definitely vote. Thanks and enjoy!!!!
