- Coloured string
- Rolling pin
- Clothes peg
Press the cardboard tube flat lengthways. Re-flatten with a rolling pin to give the folds a crisp edge.
Cut the tube width-ways into six equal sections to make six oval ‘petals’.
Lay the first ring flat and lengthways on your work surface and apply a drop of glue 1·5cm in from one folded edge. Place a second ring on top so it is lying flush with the ring below it. Repeat for the remaining rings. Hold the stack together with a peg and let dry.
Fan out daisy and glue last two rings together.
Once you have made the desired number of daisies, paint them in your chosen colour or range of colours and leave to dry on newspaper.
Thread ribbon or string through one petal of each daisy and hang up.
