Little bit of wool

Colouring pencils

Green paint 

One other colour paint ( yellow, blue, pink etc)

1....To make the bulb 

Cut out your bulb shape from the small piece of card just big enough to fit into the pot.

Paint green a small piece of paper then cut out to make the shoot, stick onto bulb.

Hole punch three holes at the bottom of bulb and tie the bits of wool to make the roots.

Cut the white piece of A4 card in half. 

Grab your pencils and draw and decorate only the one half

( Keep the plain half as we will need it later)

 

 4.... Paint your leaf and flower cup green

Paint your hand in a colour of your choice and print onto the  PDF.

Once dry cut the hand and shapes out.

 

 

Grab the other half of the A4 white card and stick the white stem onto it and cut out again. ( this will give it extra strength to stand tall)

Then stick green flower cup to hand print.

You are now ready to put it all together.

Once it is all together just give your drawn pot a staple.( this makes the structure stronger)

Add your flower using your paper clip.

Then tie a little bow with garden twine around the pot.
