Using the Pair of scissors cut the milk bottle in half.
These 2 halves will be then used to create you're flowers
Using your erasable marker pen draw different shaped flowers on the inside of milk bottle which you will then cut out.
Cut each flower to look as realistic as possible with as much detail as possible.
1 Half of the milk bottle can create 6 petals. Using a compass pierce a small hole into the center of each petal.
Quality control check:Make sure that the the hole is big enough to fit a split pin.
As a decorative feature curl the petals of the smallest flower using a pair of pliers. This piece will sit on top of the layered flowers to create a more realistic effect.
Using a split pin, layer your flowers in order of size. Rearrange them so that they are evenly layered on each other.Open the split pin so that the flowers are secure.
The finished effect is beautiful and simple.
When many flowers are made, the final design acts as a beautiful decorative feature. This can be a necklace or possibly a decorative feature for the home.
