3. This Month Craft
Idea: Pipe Cleaner Craft Ideas
This month I'll introduce some very-very simple craft ideas. If you
haven't heard of the pipe cleaners before it may sound
very strange. They have two great advantages: you'll only need pipe
cleaner, and it's really easy to work with.
You'll find below step-by-step guidelines to make a moon, stars,
flowers and a snail.
So let's get started!
Moon and Star
|The moon and the star
are so simple that I didn't take photos of the preparation. Simply bend
the pipe cleaner to look like on the picture. Twist the ends together.|
|First, you'll make
stem of the flower. ||Follow the
instructions as shown on the pictures.|
|Next, make the petals.||Twist both ends
|Finally, glue a
compressed paper ball in the middle of the flower.|
You can make the
paper ball yourself with simple soft white tissues or paper.
don't use too much glue, because the pipe cleaners can
easily stick together.Snail
