The girls school has a lovely Anzac Day Parade each year. Each class make a wreath to put on the schools rose bush Anzac Memorial at the school. Each year they do different types. Real flowers, paper flowers, tissue flowers, fabric flowers, photocopies etc.
Miss K came home yesterday excited about learning how to do tissue flowers.
I remember doing these as a kid, but had forgotten how. She talked me through the steps.
So today we made many tissue flowers and put them on our Birthday Candle Wreath to make a table decoration wreath for Anzac Day
First Cut a Tissue in half. Place both halves together.
From the shorter end Concertina/Fan fold the whole way up.
Staple in the middle like shown. Use a felt pen to colour the tips of the paper.
Make a whole heap and you can stick them on a cardboard wreath or similar.
Add some leaves and a ~ Lest We Forget ~ sign.
We will be discussing family members who fought in wars while enjoying our wreath.
May you have a peaceful and wonderful Anzac Weekend.
