Found object paper flowers
by Andrea Mulder-Slater
From Vincent van Gogh to Georgia O'Keeffe, artists throughout history have been inspired by blossoms.
Today, we decided to use some items from around the house to create a colorful flower masterpiece.
We began by painting some muffin liners that were a little too small for baking.
Then, we glued a number of the painted liners onto a small, painted paper plate. We didn't wait for the paint to dry first, though I do recommend doing that...
A nice long chenille stem was all we needed to complete our 3-d floral creation.
Try it yourself and if you do, send us photos for our Facebook page.
