PAPER PLATE FLOWERS
We made these pretty woven paper plate flowers for Mother's Day to give to Grandma.
MATERIALS: Paper plates, yarn, paints and paint makers.
TUTORIAL: First paint your plates.
Cut your flower shapes from your plates (you need an odd number of petals for the weaving to work), then decorate your plates.
Secure a piece of yarn at the back with sticky tape. Wrap the yarn across the flower shape to make your weaving threads. Secure the yarn in the middle with a knot.
Start weaving your thread over and under all the way around the flower. To change colours just tie on a new thread.
