I have been going back and forth for several years to study aromatherapy and skin care. Certification is important but for a stay at home Momma with a tight budget it can be very expensive. This summer I have been reading lots of skin care and aromatherapy books, and getting in conatct with schools for help and knowledge. I think I may have found the right school for me. In late August I will be studying with Vintage Remedies outside of Nashville,Tennessee.
We are starting to see crocuses peep out along with a few daffodils. Inspired by the season of spring, we made a daffodil bunting.
Only a few supplies are needed.
paper egg cartons or orange/dark yellow styrofoam egg cartons
tape to adhere flowers to string
string for hanging
First trace your flowers from a pattern. You can make a star shaped petal pattern. Or you can use this one provided. Then get our your paints/crayons and color the petals. Cut, adult supervision/adults only.
Then cut out egg shape cartons for inside of petals. Paint them orange.
Let your flower parts dry. Then frolick in the sun!
After some playtime we decided to add some few details, fun mark makings.
Glue flower parts together. We liked using a new glue by Elmer's called Glue All. It's a sturdier more powerful glue. Let them dry, and play in the sunshine! Yeah, more playtime!
After all this playtime. Jack needed a nap. While he napped Momma attached the flowers to some left over green wool yarn. I used masking tape, you can use any type as long as your flowers stick.
Now hang your spring project up for everyone to see! We hung ours in Jack's playroom, to spice it up a bit!
