Today is Mai’s last day of daycare before Easter. Last night we made a few Dixie Cup Easter baskets for her daycare friends.
We had Dixie cups everywhere. While our cups were drying, we continued to play & experiment with our other cups. Since it is finally feeling like spring, we thought we would plant some spring flowers around our house.
Make 6 equal cuts around a Dixie Cup leaving about a 1/2 inch at the bottom of the cup.
Fan out each cut section as shown.
Poke a hole in the center of the cup.
Paint your flowers in the colors of your choice.
Cut a pipe cleaner in half.
Bend the pipe cleaner on the back side & glue or tape into place to make a sturdier flower.
Use the other pipe cleaner halve to form leaves around the stem.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
