Holiday Craft Tutorial
What you’ll need:
– wooden craft sticks (or “woodies” – available at craft stores)
– yarn or ribbon
– green felt
– hot glue gun
– fake snow
– vase or flower box
– styrofoam or floral foam
1. Fill vase or box with styrofoam or floral foam, making sure the fit is snug.
2. Hot glue each ornament to the top of a wooden craft stick.
3. Trim wooden sticks to different heights and insert them into the foam to decide out how you’d like your “flowers” arranged.
4. Remove the “flowers” from the foam and cover the portion of the stick that sits above the foam with colorful yarn or ribbon.
5. Cut leaf shapes from the green felt and hot glue leaves onto the “stems”.
6. Insert the “flowers” back into the foam, and cover up the foam with fake snow.
