Flower on Stick

We prepared this year's Teachers' Day gift earlier cos the kids don't have much time next year. I'm glad we started making them earlier as they told me early this week that they both missed out some teachers that they wanted to give too.

My friend was so kinds as to help me go to the store I bought the pot for the gift (please see previous post) yesterday. Unfortunately, the pots are out of stock.

At such, I'm using whatever materials I have to do the extra gifts. This requires lesser work. It can be used as a bookmark or just a deco.

A Pot of Hearts

The is the little gift the kids and I did for this coming Teachers' Day. I had this idea for a while and was looking around for a suitable pot. Glad the idea was workable. I had initially planned to add a butterfly but it was too big. Hence, I left the butterfly out.
The kids told me early this week that they missed out some of their teachers and have to make more. However, the pots are out of stock. We did something else instead (please see next post). They will have to decided which to give to which teachers.

I stuff the pot with dry sponge that is used by florist for flower arrangements and covered it by sticking fake grass on the sponge using glue. I bought items from a florist sometime back. These are the balance from my old projects.

The hearts are punched out using craft punch. I get the kids to stick 2 hearts with a thin wire in-between. And they stick those into the pot. I added some cute colourful pom-poms as deco too. Wire and pots are from Art-Friend (pots are out of stock). Pom-poms are from Daiso. The messages are written on a thin Ice-cream stick I found in my 'treasure-box'. Can't remember where I got them from though.
