Hello again friends. I hope your week is off to a great start. We had a long weekend which always makes Tuesdays twice as tough to get going. Even though we’re still in the thick of winter, we’re starting to see the
temperatures rise a little bit which always brings great hopes for Spring. Well, today some of my friends and I, are sharing some spring ideas.
I made this craft a few weeks ago and I’m excited to share it with you today.
This adorable little tulips have a little secret inside. I was inspired by THIS post, I did a couple of years ago but I decided to do something a little more Springy….
Here is the surprise….
Pink crepe paper
Green crepe paper
White crepe paper
Watercolor or acrylic brown paint
1. Take some chocolate eggs or any other treat you want and make a little bundle with plastic wrap. Secure with tape.
Insert some wire to the little bundle and secure with tape.
Take some white crepe paper and wrap the little bundle. Secure with hot glue or tape.
Cut a thin strip of green crepe paper or use floral tape and wrap around wire.
Wrap all the way to the top.
Using brown paint, paint bulb of the tulip and allow to dry.
Cut several petal shapes making sure the grain run up and down.
Gently ‘cup’ the petals with your fingers.
Glue petals around wire.
Continue to glue petals all around.
Cut several long leaves…
And attach to the stem and there you go…:)
I even added a few roots to this one just for fun…:)
You can enjoy these as a treat before or after dinner…:)
