All you need to make your own poppies is:
-needle, thread, scissors
-petal pattern shape
1) Draw a petal shape or use my pattern piece in the next photo and cut out 4 petals from red felt. The pattern is approx. 1 1/2'tall by 1 3/4' wide.
These would make a cute gift with this little poem printed on it:
I'll wear a little poppy,
As red as red can be,
To show that I remember
Those who fought for me.
I made 6 tonight very quickly so we all have one to wear tomorrow.
Today we took advantage of the warm afternoon air and had some fun playing in our leaves which are finally starting to fall off our trees. Fall is probably my favourite season. I love all the colours as the leaves change colours.
Here's how we enjoyed our leaves today:
|Having Sierra loose her poppy in our leaves today prompted my evening |
crafting of making family poppies that will stay on.
|Daddy shaking more leaves off the tree :)|
How have you enjoyed your leaves today?
