How to Make

  1. Use a pink porcelain paint pen to draw the letter 'M' onto a mini porcelain vase. Then draw the letters 'U' and 'M' onto two more vases.
  2. Take a blue porcelain pen and draw a wreath design around each letter on each vase. Leave the vases to dry.
  3. Cut out 2-4 pieces of purple tissue paper, each one about 6x6 inches.
  4. Lay the tissue paper on top of each other and then fold them up in a concertina fold.
  5. Wrap a green pipe cleaner around the middle of the folded tissue paper, then wrap it around itself to create the stalk.
  6. Pull the tissue paper sheets apart to create a flower. Then make two more flowers with purple and yellow tissue paper.
  7. Place a flower in each of the three vases.

Top Tip

Make sure the vases are laying down when drying so the paint doesn't drip.
