Summertime is the perfect opportunity for me to share the joys of the great outdoors with my boys, immersing ourselves in nature's embrace. Just last weekend, we embarked on a delightful adventure of picking daisies. Laughter filled the air, and their wide smiles warmed my heart, giving me all the fuzzy good mum feelings I needed after a long week!
Now, let's get ready for your crafting journey with some simple supplies that you may already have on hand:
A black pen
A bunch of wildflowers (we used daisies)
Optional: A picnic blanket, A small side plate,
snacks & juice - Always 😂
Step 1: Flower Picking
Pack some tasty goodies and venture out on a spring walk, seeking places where wildflowers bloom abundantly. We opted for daisies, but feel free to choose any flowers that catch your eye. Get to Picking you’ll need a lovely big bunch! Running through the field, my boy’s eyes lit up choosing their flowers, The giggles were contagious, and the smiles on their faces made my heart full as they filled their little hands.
Step 2: Drawing Your Lions Face
Find a nice comfortable spot on the grass where you can work or stroll back home with your big bunch of flowers in tow. We used an old cardboard box and drew our lions face.
Step 3: Drawing Your Lions Head
Using a small side plate and a black pen, create a circle. Free handing your circle will work just as great!
Step 4: Cutting out the Lion’s face
Using scissors, carefully cut along the traced circle to create your lion's face. If your little one is younger, you may want to assist or handle this step for them.
Step 5: Holes for the flowers
With the tip of a pen, create multiple small holes around the lion's face, where the floral mane will be placed.
Step 6: Prepping the Flowers
Trim the daisies (or your chosen flowers), leaving approximately 8cm of stem. Again, if your little one is younger, you may want to lend a helping hand during this part.
Step 7: Flower Threading
Thread the daisies through the holes created for the lion's mane, allowing the flowers to bring your creation to life.
Step 7: Taping up
Flip the lion's face over and use some Sellotape to secure all the flower stems to the back, ensuring they stay in place.
And voila, it's that super easy!
Daisy manes are a delightful and effortless way to spend quality time with your little one, and I'm certain they will absolutely love it. So gather your supplies, let your creativity flow, and embark on this wonderful crafting adventure!
