Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Equipment:
Step 2: Make Petal Shape
Use the marker and wrap the wire around it one time.
Turn the marker 2-3 times while holding the edge of the wire so the petal shape stays as shown in the picture above.
Step 3: Making the Rest of the Petals
Repeat the last step for five petals in total.
Cut the wire in the length you wish your flowers would be after finishing making all petals.
Step 4: Curve the Petals
Curve each petal so the shape becomes more natural.
I suggest using the marker again and pressing the petal on the side of it so it gets a round curve.
Step 5: Dip in Wood Glue
Pour some wood glue into a disposable cup dip enough for the flower to be covered.
Dip the flower until completely covered and take it out very slowly.
You will see the glue stretches on the petal's sides and a glue "bubble" appears.
Repeat with the rest of the flowers you made.
Step 6: Let It Dry
Stick the flowers in Styrofoam cube or a cardboard box and let dry for a few hours.
Step 7: Second Coat
After completely dried, use a small paintbrush to apply another coat of the wood glue.
Let dry for a longer period of time( I waited for 24 hours before continuing).
Step 8: Color Your Flowers
Use any nail polish color you would like and apply it on the petals.
Wait until dry, and apply another coat.
I also used sparkled nail polish as a top coat so it looks cooler.
Let dry completely before touching.
NOW give the bouquet to your precious mommy and prepare to get a huge hugggg :)
