House item flowers

We started off with basic flowers made from coloured lolly pop sticks and cup cakes. But then the creative juices started going. How can we spice it up with things around the house.
Green coloured pasta could work nicely for the grass.
We glued small yellow cupcake shells to the top of milk bottle lids and added those to the centre of the flower.
I then cut up some tins and we created some pretty butterflies. I used a glitter glue in my glue gun to make their bodies and poked small pieces of wire in while wet for the feelers. Some blobs of glue and glitter on the wings where the final touches.
A good lesson on looking around you and noticing all the different colours and shapes that you will find.
