How to Make

  1. Follow the instructions on the pack of clay, then cut out petal shapes of varying sizes – I used small and medium cutters to create 16 flowers.
  2. For added interest, score simple lines on each petal with a skewer and use a drinking straw to create a central circle, taking care not to press down too far. You will probably need to use several straws, as the clay gets stuck into the ends.
  3. Gently ease up the petals using a flat bladed knife or modelling tool so they stand proud. Place the flowers onto a baking tray and dry as directed.
  4. Once the clay flowers are cool, carefully stick onto the glass vase using superglue or similar.
