Spring is right around the corner (finally!) and it’s time to brighten things up a bit. You could place some paper whites around your house, and add decorations in pastels, as well as grab a bouquet of fresh flowers for your table. And a great way to spruce up the outside of your house even before the flowers start blooming is with this easy daffodil wreath. You need items from around the house and some time to be creative – kids can participate, too!
- White paper
- Yellow paper
- Food coloring
- Scotch tape
- Styrofoam wreath
First, dye your Q-tips yellow by trimming off one end and dunking the other into the dye. Next, grab a piece of white paper, and make sure it is cut in a square – about a 3-inch square is a good size. Fold the square in a triangle, and then in a triangle again. Now, cut along the two open sides to create a curve, like the outside edge of a petal. Take your yellow paper and cut it into a half-circle, about two inches long. Twist it into a cone shape, and tape it together. Poke a small hole in the center of a white flower, pushing the cone tip through the hole. Then insert the Q-tip, stick end first, into the center of the cone. Secure everything together with scotch tape on the back of the flower. Now, push the stick end of each Q-tip into the foam circle of the wreath. Keep going until you have a beautiful, full wreath. Hang it on your door with some yellow ribbon, and you’ll have a sunshiny presence right at the front of your house!
