Before a children's party, it's always a good idea to plan a few activities designed to keep the young guests entertained. One idea is to fashion silk flowers into festive garlands -- a project Martha's young friends undertake today using brightly colored ranunculus "blooms."
Tools and Materials
Craft glue, such as Sobo
Flower Garlands How-To
1. Remove the bloom from the stem and peel off the layers of petals one by one.
2. Apply a dab of glue to the tip of one flower petal, and attach that petal to another petal. Continue until the garland reaches the desired length. For a variation, you can place the larger petals in the middle of the garland and build out in both directions with the small petals on the ends.
