Valentine bling

Here's yet another valentine craft idea for little hands!
(A girl can never have too much bling!)

You need:
6 colored pipe cleaners
Another silver or gold depending on your love of bling bling... Must be Sparkly!!!
And another one in green for the leaves. So 8 in total.

Twist together about 4 times

Curve around your finger and twist twice

Fan all the pipe cleaners out making sure they are all even in length

Tuck in each of the tips ( they are sharp)

Curve down each of the pipe cleaners down to the center of the ring like snails tightly...

Bring 2 petals to the center and curve slightly...
Shape the rest of the petals around the rose...

Ok... You are ready for the sparkly bling!

Wrap one end of the pipe cleaner around the base of the rose ring..

Curve the opposite end like a snail towards the rose center...

Tuck it in to the center of the rose...

Now you are ready for the leaves...
Twist the green pipecleaner around the base of the rose once

Curve the two ends inward like snails

And shape the leaves gently

Heh heh...

One happy valentine fairy!

Thanks Martha!
