4 Flower Crafts To Get Ready For Spring
After those long, drab winter months, spring simply cannot come fast enough! And we can already feel the changes: The days are getting longer, the sun's starting to come out again, and the first flowers of spring are beginning to blossom. Like hyacinths, for example. Their time is now, and they're ready to show off their beauty to the whole world. To welcome spring properly, check out these 4 awesome DIY flower projects!
1. Hyacinths In A Ball Of Yarn
- flower bulb (like a hyacinth flower)
1.1 Remove the soil from the flower bulb and wrap the bulb in a piece of felt. Grab some wire and wrap it around the bulb so the felt stays put.
1.2 Wrap the yarn around the bulb in a crisscross pattern and tie up both ends of the yarn.
2. Dyed Flowers
- glass with water
- food coloring
- flowers with white petals
Add some food coloring to a glass of water, put the flowers in the colored water, and watch the petals change colors. Some flowers may take longer to change their color than others, but it usually shouldn't take more than 5-10 hours.
3. Wax Flower Bulbs
- hyacinth flowers
- pink wax
- white wax
Place the hyacinths in some water and let them soak for about 1 hour. Melt a pink candle in a hot water bath and dunk the bulbs into the pink wax so they're completely covered. Use the melted white wax to draw patterns on the bulbs.
4. Moss Ball
- potting soil
- bonsai soil
- plant of your choice
- peat moss
4.1 Combine the potting soil with the bonsai soil and add water. Form a big ball in your hands and then break it in two. Press each half onto the roots of your flower or plant of choice.
4.2 Take the moss and wrap it around the ball of soil. Twirl the string around it so the moss, soil, and plant stay put.
