This project is intended for kids ages 5+.
Step 1

Paint the planter box as desired and let dry.

Step 2

To make the paper flowers, begin with a piece of construction paper. Cut two 3" x 12" [7.62 cm x 30.48 cm] strips. Lay one strip on top of the other, then cut slits all the way down the strip.

Step 3

Glue a green chenille pipe cleaner onto one end, then roll the strip around it, gluing it at the end. Fluff the strips. Repeat for more flowers.

Step 4

Put some Model Magic® in the planter box, then insert your flower stems.

Step 5

Finally, add some paper shred to fill the box.
