We just finished up our Mother’s Day Photo Shoot. The whole time we were working on it I was trying to think what I could do for today’s DIY.
We did use daisies this morning and I thought “how pretty” let’s blow those things up to giant size.
Here is the inspiration for today’s DIY
If you are having a boho themed wedding or just a sweet backyard outdoorsy affair then these DIY daisies are just the thing
You will need:
- small paper plates your choice of color(s) – I got mine at Walmart (24 pack for .97) this is a few pennies less than the dollar store.
- tissue paper your choice of color(s) – the dollar tree is the best place to get this ($1 for 35 sheets)
- bread ties – do those different colors really mean what day the bread was made? Just asking.
- glue gun
Ok, once you get all your supplies together you are going to cut the middle out of each paper plate.
How nice that there is an indented circle already there, at least from the Walmart ones.
I used 5 sheets of tissue for each flower.
Fold the tissue using the “fan fold.”
Tie the middle with the bread tie – you could also use pipe cleaners
round off each end with your scissors (see the picture)
Gently, separate and puff out the layers of tissues
Heat up the glue gun and glue the paper plate cut out to the center of each flower
Voila. Repeat a again and again…… We made about 45 of these for a recent event
If you are going to make a lot of them, find some friends to help
Here are the pictures
You could do all colors of mix and match. This would be pretty for a birthday or Mother’s Day. Better get busy.
Saturday, I will be posting our Mother’s day photo shoot. It turned out pretty awesome, can’t wait for you to see it.
