Summer crafting #BostikBloggers

We are late! Too many trips out so we finally got to crafting last week. Our Bostik Bloggers box had an outdoors theme and was filled with flowers and greenery. As soon as we saw the twisty wire, a summer door wreath sprang to mind and my son helped pick out all the flowers and got sticking with the glue.

We used:

twisty green wire
silky leaves
silky flowers
Blu Tack Foam Pads
Blu Tack Glu Pen
assorted nature buttons
felt flower embellishments
pretty butterfly embellishments
assorted ribbons
woven mesh strip
ribbonsWe twisted the green foliage wire into a circle.

Then using the Blu Tack Foam Pads and Blu Tack Glu Pen stick the buttons and embellishments on in a pretty arrangement.

Add the ribbons, tying them on.

Tie the mesh strip to make a loop to hand up the summer door wreath with.

We used the Blu Tack Glu Pen to stick on pretty buttons and will now put a mix of seeds in to pass on to a friend.

We used:
felt flowers
wooden dollies
silky flowers
Blu Tack Glu Pen
Blu Tack Foam Pads

Glue two felt flowers together at an angle to make a rosette shape.

We made two little flower fairies with wooden dollies, buttons and the silky flowers as wings.

These were glued to the rosette.

Buttons were glued around the edges to decorate our gardening award.
