Foam Sheet Flower Wall Art
Posted by creativenimi at 11:08 AM
This Foam Flowers Wall art is one of those quick crafts that your toddler will love and cherish everytime he or she sees it. It needs a little preparation ahead of the crafting time. In your leisure time (which I know is hard to find with a toddler in the house:-)) cut 4 petal flowers using craft knife or scissors. As shown in the illustration you need to cut them in three different sizes. I recommend using contrasting colors. Cutting them on peel and stick foam sheets make this a lot easier and quick. Now, take the largest flower as base (do not peel off), stick the smaller flowers one over the other in decreasing sizes. Also, cut a small circle to make the center of the flower. Refer to the illustration to see how the flower should look like. These peel and stick foam sheets are easily available in Michaels or Walmart or online on Amazon.com
Once your flower is ready only other supply you need is contrasting card stock of a suitable size that can accomodate the flower. Let your toddler peel the largest flower and stick it to the card stock. If your toddler is trying stickers for the first time it is a good idea to make two such flowers so that you can show them how to peel and stick. Display this Foam Sheet Flower Wall Art in your kids room where he can see it everyday and be happy that he made it. Believe me it adds lots of confidence in them. I made it with my daughter and she is so proud that she made it. Do try it.
Tip: You can cut any thing attractive which appeals to your toddler, like umbrella or butterfly using different colors of peel and stick foam sheet.
