Recently at our little library, we had fun making flower ballerinas. I bought inexpensive silk flowers from a dollar store and pulled the blossoms off of the wire stems. The hole in the flower is just big enough for a doubled pipe cleaner to be threaded through. Along with beads, buttons and yarn, we were able to make very cute ballerinas with blossom skirts!
Two of the ballerinas had a grand adventure! They danced on the table...
...they danced on a book...
I lost track of them, but then I noticed some bright colour in a pot of dead flowers outside.
We will soon plant real flowers in this pot, but in the meantime, they certainly are a lovely addition.
