Hi, I'm Cameron (aka Iffy), a stay at home mother to 4 beautiful children. My family is my life! I am not crafty by nature....but I am learning =D I will share my experiences with you(good & bad) with crafts, DIY, cooking, and life. I say what's on my mind, and remain honest, it's just who I am. Love it or leave it =D So follow me and see my progress as I document my journey, and If All Else Fails....at least you have gained a friend and gotten some great tips or maybe learned something new along the way!

Crafting Kiddies Sunday #2~ Spring Blossoms

Pin It
  Are you ready for a really fun, easy, family project that looks great on display?
Well grab your kiddies and some supplies and  let's begin!
This was  another craft we completed over the weekend, and I am really pleased with the results. 










I came across   this craft over at  Sew,Craft,Create
Such a cute little blog, check her out.
 First you will need:
twigs,
 2 colors tissue paper(1 sheet each)
scissors,
& a hot glue gun

I used 1 purple & 1 yellow for my colors.

Then I cut assorted sized squares from the tissue paper,
I put the purple sheet on top of the yellow so I would have matching sizes.

You can then either fold your second color in half forming a triangle,
or you can cut it in half from corner to corner to make a single ply triangle.
I folded mine.  
Now for the helpers
They loved this part!

Lay your triangle on top of your square & 
 hold a pencil(tip side) up
then place your 2 pieces of tissue paper(square on the bottom)
so that it's touching your pencil tip.
With your other hand pinch the tissue paper around the tip & twist slightly.
Take it off the pencil & twist just the bottom to secure your flower from unfolding.
Look at that concentration. 
While the kiddies made the blossoms,
I put a dab of hot glue on my twig where I wanted the blossom to sit.
For me, I wanted my blossoms at the fork in the twig.
Then quickly place the blossom in the hot glue
You may need to hold it until the glue starts to cool 
& you may want to twist it to make the blossom how you want it.
Then Michaela had a quick fit because I wouldn't let her have the hot glue gun......

Then she found a small twig

and used it as a brush

Here's how the finished project looked
In a vase(colors in this picture is how it looks in person)
with natural light
A single twig on the mantle is simple & pretty
Once I played around with the placement of them
I decided I liked them both on the mantle
Don't mind the empty space above....
that's where my next craft is gonna go.
I'm in the process of that one at the moment =D

The longest part of this craft was figuring out where I wanted them to go.
I'm a tad bit indecisive...I'm a Libra what do ya expect? Hehe

Isn't this just sweet & simple?
