CORN SHEATH FLOWERS:












Today we got to know about an easy way of flower making. The corn feather is the outer sheath of the corn .You should preserve it by cleaning it with water and completely dry it with a cloth and keep under sunlight .Pour some salt in it and spread over , place inside a book to flatten it.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Corn feather , thread, cotton ,green cello tape ,sticks or thick metal wire,pencil.

HOW TO MAKE IT ??

*cut the preserved corn sheath in the shape of a rose petal , 10 such pieces are needed.

*to shape the end ,place a pencil below the petal and twist it along , when you bend it with hand ,it will tear.

*take a wire of about 10 cm ,bend its end like a hook and place some cotton over it and tie it with thread.

*place the petals one by one and tie each around the wire .

*stick the green cello tape around as to hide the threaded parts ,and tape the stem parts too.

*our corn flowers are ready……………………..

*If you like to color them, use acrylic colors.......
