Floral Crafts, Green Crafting, Home Decor, Mod Podge, Paper Crafts

Flowers are adorable to put around the home for summer, but hang them on doorknobs and they’ll fall apart and wilt. The next best option is to make paper flowers which will last all season long. It’s a quick and easy way to add a lot of color around your home for very little money.
What you’ll need:
Step 1. Draw a circle on a piece of colored paper, then cut it out and use it as the center of the flower.
Step 2. Draw petals on colored paper, whether it’s one color or a mix of a few, then cut the petals out.
Step 3. Attach the edge of the petals onto the back of the center to form the flower.
Step 4. Use Mod Podge to glue one edge of the pipe cleaner onto the center back of the flower, form it into an arch, then glue the other end down next to the first.
Step 5. Put glitter glue all over the center of the flower, then give it ample time to dry before hanging it up.

With this simple candle craft the possibilities are endless! It takes minutes to make and minimal supplies! You could easily make a centerpiece with these candles. You could really do this for any holiday or season. These candles also look beautiful sitting alone. I have a few on the bathroom counter and when the sunlight hits the salts it is just beautiful! Have fun!
What you will need:
Cover the candle with glue. I just used my finger to spread it around. Dump some Epsom salt into a bowl. Roll the candle around in the bowl until it is completely covered.
Allow to dry completely. Light and enjoy!
