Tiny drinking straw flowers : Recycling

I am a flower freak..:)
Making flowers is my all time favorite task.Tried many times with different recycling materials and other materials too but this is my favorite of all. Made small flowers from recycled drinking straws.Trust me they looks very cute..
They are very easy and beautiful too. For the flower centers we can use either ear swabs or clay.

Used color straws and hot glue to make these flowers. Check out the instructions in the below video and leave your feedback..

Tiny Hat Bobby Pins

Another recycling project from me. I used cardboard and bottle caps to make this pin.
These can be used as hair pins for cute little girls and their dolls..:)

First cut the cardboard circles, then paint the bottle caps and cardboard circles using any type of paint. Here I used black acrylic paint. Once they dried, glue the bottle caps on the cardboard circles.
Decorate using any kind of small flowers, feathers or ribbons. I used small ribbon flowers. For ribbon flower tutorial, check at my youtube channel.

Finally I glued a bobby pin under the hat using hot glue gun..

Check at the below video for video tutorial:

Flowers from Recycled Water Bottels

Recycling is the good way to help earth. Now a days people are more conscious about reduce,recycle and reuse concepts. Water bottle recycling is one of the best recycling idea. I made beautiful flowers from water bottles, painted them and insert lights into them to make them more beautiful.
For step by step instruction, refer the below video.

For a festival at my home, I used these flower lights. Got many appreciations from my friends.  Hope you will all like them.

Best summer craft idea to do with kids. Provide your valuable feedback and share your photos if you make some.

Making Paper roses is very fun activity for me.It is one of the best mother's day gift. My daughter always make a paper flower to me and I love to take them as a gift because they made by my lovely daughter.
