Popcorn Hyacinths

We're making these popcorn hyacinths at Toddler group this morning, inspired by Jackie on i heart arts n crafts. We tried it out last Friday and were pleased with the results. 

We used a long piece of green paper as stems and leaves and glued some popcorn to either side of the stem before painting them it in our chosen colours. 

Here's a closer look at the flower...

I have to be honest, they look at their best the moment you finish them as the moisture in the glue and paint cause the pieces of popcorn to shrink so the final flowers are not quite so full. They still look pretty good though.
