Create these pretty flowers out of colourful chenille stems to brighten up the home or to give as a special handmade gift.
You will need:
Take a pink chenille stem and begin to bend into a flower shape. Do this by bending the end into a small loop and twisting to hold it in place. Then thread the other end of the chenille stem through this loop and create another. Repeat this until you have 5 small loops.
Trim the end of the chenille stem to leave you with a flower shape. Then use the same technique to create a slightly larger flower with a blue chenille stem.
Stick the smaller flower to the larger flower using double sided tape. Stick the tape onto the centre of the flowers.
Use double sided tape to stick a yellow button in the centre of the flower. Then twist two green chenille stems together to make it stronger and then stick to the back of the flower.
