Daisy ornaments for an Easter decoration

Handmade paper daisies for an Easter decoration. I bought the egg shaped vase by Oogenlust my favorite flower shop. It's easy to make. Look at the tutorial below.


  1. Take a piece of thick white paper and punch out two daisies (using a
    daisy-shaped paper puncher)
  2. Cut a small cotton thread of about 8 cms (3.5 inches)
  3. Apply some glue to the heart of one of the daisies (using a glue pad)
  4. Fold the cotton thread into two and glue the ends together with the
    glue at the heart of the daisy. Apply some more glue on top
  5. Attach the other daisy on top, turning it a little sideways, so that
    there are no spaces in between the leaves
  6. Cut some hairs from a yellow pompom and attach these to the sides of
    the daisy in the middle, so that a yellow heart appears. I used
    regular superglue for this and a cotton tip to apply the glue
  7. Hint: you can also vary the colours of the hearts of the daisies. You
    can also turn the daisies into a garland.

Little boxes (1)

I made these boxes of large matchboxes. For the "little box of celebration" I made a garland, confetti, two pompoms, a party hat and a small piece of wrapping paper with a gift tag. For the "little box of hearts I made a hearts garland, table scatter, a heart pattern for Hama pearler beads and also a small piece of wrapping paper with a hearts sticker  It took me a long time to make everything in mini-format. Love to do this...see you soon for my next post for the little box of Easter!!
