BENGALURU: Whothought that pipe cleaner stems made of wire would one day become hot selling raw material for craft work? Chenille stems make a great material for craft projects. Here’s a tutorial for super quick wall decor.
Materials: felt sheet, chenille stems, scissors, craft glue, sequins or embellishments
You need to trim the stems on each end, where the bulgy part stays towards the outer end.
Bend the piece in half over another piece on its centre. Do this with about four or five pieces in such a way that the core of the flower is secure enough to be glued.
Apply glue in good quantity on the centre of these flowers, and glue them on to the felt sheet of your choice of colour. Let it dry. Arrange and glue other flowers that you make next, into a pattern on the sheet.
Embellish the center of each flower with old buttons and a mirror.
You can use this as table decor, or frame it up as wall decor.
