This fun floral craft is perfect for a centerpiece on the table, a small decoration, or a beautiful kid's craft. You just take some floral Styrofoam and arrange some fake flowers in it. You take twisted raffia, wind and glue it around the Styrofoam base, and voila, a fancy basket!


Approximate Time: 10-20 minutes



Take flowers and poke them into the top of the Styrofoam cylinder, making a pretty arrangement. Let children explore and play with this step, experimenting on what combinations look the best. Adults should play with it a little too!

Glue a piece of twisted raffia on the back of the Styrofoam bottom. Wind raffia around pot, gluing a little as you wind, keeping it tight and fitting. Keep winding until you get to the top of the pot, cut off remaining raffia, then tuck the edge of raffia under the back, glue in place and let dry.


Use as a table or shelf decoration, or make mini-flowers in a basket as card holders, just stick the card onto a toothpick, and into flowers at each place setting.
