These flowers look amazing and are really quite simple to make.

You need …
Plastic bottle tops (these are from milk cartons, glitter, tissue paper circles, 30 cm pipe cleaners and glue.

If you have any metal bottle tops then you can find how to make some simple flowers using them in another blog post here.

1. Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around your milk bottle lid and secure the end. Do this for all the bottle tops. Then carefully remove all the bottle tops.

2. Spread a generous amount of glue inside the lids and sprinkle with glitter. Set aside to dry.

3. Take two tissue paper circles and fold them in half lots of times so they end up ridged. Glue them together and then glue the back of a glittered lid onto the centre of them.

4. Carefully pull the tissue paper down the sides of the bottle top and scrunch together.

5. Get your pipe cleaner and slide it back on to the bottle top.

6. Bend the pipe cleaner in half and twist leaving a little bit free to make the leaf.

    How did you get the one in the picture to stand up in the bottle cap?

    • It’s an upside down squeezy bottle lid. I just slotted it in to the space where you would squeeze the liguid out. You can add a blob of glue but the thickness of the pipe cleaner should hold it in place
