Summer Wood Craft - Scroll Saw Project - Wooden Flowers

These easy to craft wooden flowers look very decorative in the window sill or on a small shelf. Because they are not wide, they are perfect for those with minimal decorating space.

Flowers and bases templates

Instructions:

1. Print out the patterns to the desired size. One flower and one base is larger than the other. Trace patterns onto the wood.
2. Saw out all of the required pieces and sand them smooth.
3. Paint pieces accordingly. The large flower, smaller wooden ball halves and small base are red and the small flower and larger wooden balls and large base are orange. Let all of the pieces dry thoroughly.
4. When the pieces have been painted on both sides, dry brush brown on the red edges and dry brush red on the orange edges to get an aged look.
5. Drill small holes on the center of both bases and in the bottom of each of the flowers. Insert the wooden sticks. Use wood glue if necessary to secure the sticks.
6. Glue the centers on the flowers on all sides.
7. Tie raffia to the sticks and make a bow. Glue hot glue just above the bow and push the bow onto the glue to secure it.
8. On each raffia bow, knot 4 orange wooden beads.
