Crafts from cotton pads

You will need:

  1. Gouache.
  2. Cotton pads.
  3. Brush
  4. PVA glue.
  5. Starch.
  6. Cotton pads.
  7. Green tape.
  8. Wire.
  9. Cotton wool or paper napkin.

Instruction:

  • The first step is to prepare materials from which you will make flowers from cotton discs. It is necessary to cook a paste: dilute in a separate vessel 1 tbsp. starch in a small amount of cold water, then, stirring constantly, pour a glass of boiling water in a thin stream. Take cotton pads and moisten them abundantly in the prepared paste.
  • Dry the discs on the battery and start coloring. Now you can build almost anything from cotton pads, but we are interested in flowers. For a flower, cut out the shape of the petals from cotton pads. Glue the five parts together using a PVA.
  • Using cotton wool, make a core of a small piece of cotton wool or napkin. Paint cotton white gouache. Wrap the wire with tape and make two leaves from the same tape. Attach the stem to the flower.

A flower of cotton pads ready! It can be put in a vase or put in a pot. If necessary, you can make several flowers in the same way and build a bouquet.

You will need:

  1. Cotton pads
  2. Threads
  3. Flower pot.
  4. Earth or colored pebbles.
  5. Colored napkins or cloth scraps.

Instruction:

  • Make the main leaf, near which the remaining rose petals will be located. Take one cotton pad, slightly rub the edges of the disc with your fingers and twist it into a “roll” so that the flattened side of the disc is narrower than the usual one. Wrap a second cotton pad around the resulting petal.
  • Then use the third cotton pad to wrap the previous cotton pads, but only half. The rest of the petals (there should be about 7 - 9 pieces) wrap in exactly the same way as the third cotton pad.
  • When the rosette of cotton pads is ready, take a sturdy white thread and tie the bottom end of the rose several times, tying a knot.
  • Thus, you will get a beautiful white rose from cotton pads. If you want, you can paint the rose red, yellow or pink and attach a wire wrapped or painted green to it.
  • You can also build a few of these roses and plant them in a flower pot, sprinkled with earth or pebbles and decorated with colored napkins or cloth scraps.

Rose of cotton pads ready! You can put it on the window sill or give it to someone.

You will need:

  1. Cotton pads.
  2. Paint (watercolor or gouache) yellow.
  3. Durable thread.
  4. PVA glue.
  5. Needle.
  6. Scissors.

Instruction:

  • Prepare the petals of which the daisy will consist. Make something like a funnel out of a cotton pad. Wind the end of the funnel - it will be a daisy petal. Build a few of these petals (about 10 pieces). The petals need to be wrapped with one thread, slightly pulling them to each other. Having built the required number of daisy petals, distribute them in a circle.
  • Take another cotton pad and paint it yellow, dipping in a solution of watercolor or gouache. Wait until the middle of the chamomile is completely dry so as not to stain the snow-white petals. When the core is dry, it can be glued on top of the petals.

Chamomile of cotton pads ready. It can be glued on green colored paper or a small stalk to the daisy and put it in a vase.
