Now that Spring is here kids love nothing more than exploring outdoors and saving all of the neat things they find.
For our craft this week we have made a Sunflower Treasure Box for your child to keep all of their prized possessions safe.
For this craft you will need:
- a circular cardboard box with a lid
- a sheet of yellow felt
- 10 brown pompoms
- glue (bottle or glue gun)
- green paint
- white paint
- scissors (not shown)
- 8 rhinestone embelishments
for the bee you will need:
- 2 google eyes
- yellow pompom
- a black pipe cleaner
- a small piece of white felt
Step 1: Paint the bottom of the box with the green paint.
Step 2: Paint the lid with the white paint
Both pieces painted
Step 3: Cut out your petals (7 in total). Don’t worry if they are different sizes, it will give the flower character.
Step 4: Glue your petals onto the top of the box using either the tacky glue or a glue gun. (If you are using a stiffer felt a glue gun is recommended.)
The first row of petals glued on
Step 5: Cut and glue on the second row of petals (6 in total). These petals should be a bit smaller than the
the first row and should be staggered to fill in the gaps.
Step 6: Glue on the brown pompoms. You can use them to cover up any gaps there may be in the middle of the flower.
Step 7: Add the embelishments onto the side of the box. If you are doing this craft with little ones you can use stickers instead on rhinestones.
To make the bee cut a 2 inch piece of pipe cleaner and wrap it around the yellow pompom. Glue the google eyes into the end and then cut a small piece of white felt for wings.
Glue the Bee onto the flower and you have a Sunflower Treasure Box!
Different coloured felt with white pompoms can be used if you want to make Gerbera daisys instead on Sunflowers.
