I like bargin craft shopping and when I see things of sale I have a habit of buying them and thinking about what I can actually do with them later. Thats happened when a local bead store closed down around 6 months ago and most of the things in store were $1. The owner was super nice and once he found out I liked pink he kept grabbing pink things from around the store and giving them to me for free XD
And that’s how I got a ridiculous number of these things which apparently go on earrings…
But let’s face it, how many of those am I ever going to actually use?? Not many. So this is what I did with some of them!
What you need:
So let’s make some daisies! Place the petals like this:
Hot glue them together…
Make a whole heap of the flowers 😀
Paint them whatever colour you like. I decided to go with traditional white/yellow daisies. I needed a couple of coats of acrylic paint to get a decent finish.
Keep coating them until they are the colour you want.
This is what you should have:
Now cut out a cardboard circle big enough to cover all of the middle gap and paint it yellow.
Make one for every flower…
Should be around this size:
Now with some of the other circle thingies use the pliers to remove the little round part on the end so it’s a complete circle.
Paint them with a base coat too:
Then yellow over the top ^_^ I used sponge to apply the paint so it gave them more texture.
Now after everything is dry hot glue the cardboard to one side and the yellow ring to the other side.
Now to make them nice and shiny 😀 PVA glue to the rescue!
Give the whole thing a going over the the glue and let it dry.
After they are dry you should glue the magnets to the back. I decided to use mine for fridge magnets but you could easily just blue tac them to walls or windows 😀 Reminds me of a teenage girl’s room in the 90’s, just add “Girl Power” poster XD
And there you have it! Pretty decorations made with something I thought I would have no freaking use for XD
What’s the oddest thing you guys have made into a craft project?
