Hello friends, Hope you all are enjoying you weekend. Today am posting something special which i made for my mother's birthday. As i was searching for making something lovely for my mom i came across the tutorial of making these foam roses in Dr. Sonia's blog. It was simple and looked grand. So gave a try and here is my bouquet of roses.

I used red and white foam sheets. The leaves are made from cardstock.  I upcycled a salt tin to a flower vase.

I covered the can by wrapping up woolen threads of different colours.


For tutorial on how to make these roses visit Dr. Sonia's blog - Foam rose tutorial

Happy birthday Amma!! Enjoy your day!! Hope you like my creation!!

Have a crafty weekend Friends!!
