CRAFTivities- Paper Plate Sunflower

PAPER PLATE SUNFLOWER WITH SEEDS




TOOLS: Paint, Paper plate, glue, scissors, birdseed, construction paper (for stem), brush or other tool to spread the glue

MAKE IT A CRAFT KIT:
Gather the tools
Put em in a gallon ziplock
THAT'S THE EASIEST CRAFT KIT EVER!

STEPS:


Step 1: PAINT!
Paint then let dry before moving on.


Step 2: Cut
Just basic cuts straight(ish) in along the perimeter of the plate to create petals.
Slightly bend the petals in for texture.
This would also be a good time to but a stem from construction paper if you want one.


Step 3 & 4: Glue & Apply
Apply stem to back if you have one.
Paint on glue to the center of the flower pour on the seeds or glitter or nuts or whatever you want to the center of the plate.

You are right - this is pretty easy! Maybe peanut butter can be used instead of glue to make a bird feeder out of it too. Thanks for sharing!
