Hello... Just a quick little crafty post today, a make perfect for a rainy bank holiday Monday. Yes while away last week in a very rainy Suffolk, we spent quite some time stuck in the cottage, wondering what to do, on one of these occasions the very lovely Lucy shared with us how to make these pretty loo roll flowers.
As we were in a cottage in the middle of no where, craft supplies were some what limited but all you need for this make is the inside of a toilet roll some scissors, glue and a peg.
First up cut six pieces from the cardboard tube
Then all you do is glue them at one end and stick the pieces together, like so
then pop on a peg to hold them in place while they dry
Once dry they look like this
then all you have to do is glue the last section and pop the peg back on until it's dry.
You have a loo roll flower,
How I wished I'd had a button with me to pop in the centre, I do love the rustic look of them, but I was also hankering for some paints, glitter, buttons and ribbons to decorate them maybe even some decoupage paper, the options are endless.
I can see them on Christmas trees all white and sparkly and also painted in pretty pastel shades with button centre made up into a pretty garland. So a big thank you to Lucy for introducing me to the loo roll flower.
As those of you who follow me on Instagram will know I had a bit of a fall on holiday and have injured my ankle, don't you just love the zimmer frame!! Any road it's taking me ages to do anything at the moment, so it might be a while until I get around to my next post.
