DIY ~ Funny Flower

One of the kidlets needed a flower for a prop in her dance!
I figured I could probably make that!!!
Here's what I came up with...
First twist 5 green pipe cleaners.
Cut out 2 green  leaf shapes from felt.
Cut 10 "tear" shaped felt pedals.
Two of each color.
Bend half of a pipe cleaner (in a color that matches your petal) and glue to one side of your petal.
Now glue your other matching petal on top so the pipe cleaner is inside.
Repeat with all five of your petals.
At the top of your pipe cleaner "stem", fan the pipes out and glue a petal to each one.
For the center glue 2 buttons on top of each other and attach right in the middle.
I then used Mod Podge and some glitter to add a lil' sparkle!
Bend your leaves and pedals however you want!

Funky eh?
