Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Download, print and cut out the provided template on card stock. To download the template, simply click the “Template” button above.
Cut open two lunch bags and remove the bottom.
Trace and cut out 2 circles and 7 of each petal.
Paint the petals with yellow watercolor.
Line up the 2 circle cut outs and punch holes around the edge with about .5″ in between each hole.
Tie a knot in the end of the yellow cording and lace through the first holes of each circle.
Continue lacing around the circle until you have about 5 holes left. Be sure when lacing you do not pull too hard or miss any holes on either circle!
Stuff poms into the circle, until it is about an 1.5″ thick.
Finish lacing and tie a knot to secure.
Spread hot glue or craft glue all over the top of the circle and cover it with brown and black melty beads.
Once the middle is dry and all the melty beads are secure, flip it over and glue on the petals!
