What springs for this month of May? Flowers! Yes, it’s the time of the month again where every community blooms just like what flowers do for the Flowers of May. It may not be necessary to have real flowers in your backyard, but you can also do DIY projects to join the festivity. You can make flowers out of these 5 things:
If you want your flower to have more texture, you can use crepe or Japanese paper. All you need to do with them is to fold it out or cut out a portion of the paper and roll it on the ends and tie it with a string or an elastic band. You can search on the Internet for more ideas on how to make them.
Origami paper is often used when forming an object like paper airplanes, paper boats, or etc. They are formed by folding the origami paper. There are various ways on how to fold it and turn it into different types of flowers. Remember to put sticks at the bottom of your flower to make it more realistic.
If you’re the Earth-friendly type of person, you can recycle old newspapers. Just like with the origami, you’ll have to do the folding technique to create a flower out of newspapers. But before you do it, you might have to paint it first to make it more attractive.
Have a lot of scratch papers in your room? Don’t throw them out. Instead, recycle them and use them instead to make flowers of various sizes. Again, you just have to paint it with poster paint to cover the writings on the paper to make your DIY flowers attractive.
Have you seen decorative flowers displayed on malls? Some of them use fabrics to create those flowers. Now, you can’t apply the folding technique with these fabrics. Instead, you have to form them and sew them to secure the flowers in place. You can use fabric glue too if kids want to make one out of fabrics.
