Intro: Cellophane Flowers
This is a quick and fun project that can be used to recycle old cellophane from chocolate wrappers or gift wrapping, and can be made with simple materials that may be found lying around the house, like toothpicks.
These flowers are a simple decoration that can be used for multiple occasions and will be a fun project to do with kids
Step 1: Materials
- Cellophane (I recycled the cellophane from old chocolate wrappers)
- Hot glue gun
Step 2: Make the Flower
Cut a small rectangular piece of cellophane
Pinch it in the centre, so that you get a flower shape as shown above
Step 3: Glue the Flower to a Stem
Place a toothpick against the pinched centre
Glue the toothpick to the flower with the glue gun
Kids - get an adult to help - this glue gets hot!
Step 4: Decorative Touches
Cut a strip of yellow cellophane and roll it into a bowl
Place a dot of hot glue in the centre of the flower and place the ball of yellow cellophane on top of it
