Hello people! I am excited to pop in to share with you my another creations for Valentine Day! I did a small flower made of corn husks and put it on a bottle so I can share it with my friends this Valentine's Day. Flowers are so beautiful that I even used it as a decor in a gift, check it here. This time, I used the corn husk to create beautiful flowers since the style of my flowers is so conducive to the material I used in this project. I am sure your friends will like this flower in a bottle. 

Materials:

Dyed Corn Husk
Scissors
Glue
Vial/ Bottle
Flower Tape
Craft Wire
Procedures:
1. Cut the pink/red corn husk into a petal shape. Usually a flower is composed of 5 petals but you can add more if you want.
2. Get a strip of a corn husk and twist it until you make the center of the flower. Glue each petal on the twisted corn husk.
3. Twist a craft wire over the petals to hold the them in place and this will also serve as the stem of the flower.
4. Cut a green corn husk in to a leaf shape. 
5. Cover the craft wire (stem) with a crepe paper or a flower tape and add the leaves on the stem.
6. Put it on a small bottle or vial. You now have a flower in a bottle and you can send it to your friends, families, etc. 
Tips: You can add a ribbon and other design to make it more beautiful and creative. You can also add a small card and put your message on it. This craft is not only a gift for Valentines Day but this can also be a great souvenir in a wedding, debut or birthdays.

Hmmm saan ka naman bumili ng bote? Mahirap ata maghanap ng ganyan. May suggestion ako kaibigan. Pwede paki-lagay kung saan mo kinuha o binili ang mga materyales para madali lang gumawa. Nga pala salamat.
