Bouquet of Flowers (Gerbera Daisies)
You’ll want to gather a handful of long, straight sticks. Use garden clippers to cut them from a tree in your backyard or gather up some already fallen on the ground. For this project, you’ll want to cut 3 sticks between 12″-18″ long and another 3 sticks that are 4″-4.5″ long.
To start your first God’s Eye, take one long stick and one short stick and cross them over each other about 2 inches down from the long stick.
If you want to add colorful craft feathers and pony beads, first cut a piece of yarn about 6 inches long. Using a crochet hook, pull the yarn piece through the center of the god’s eye. Thread 2 pony beads to each end and tie a secure knot. Then add some tacky glue to the stem of each feather and poke it up inside the beads.
Cut a 5″ piece of embroidery thread. Fold it in half and loop it through the hole of your personalized birthday tag. Then tie it to the top stick of your god’s eye, leaving enough thread for it to hang down in the center.
Poke your god’s eye into a bouquet for a colorful centerpiece that any birthday girl will love! I chose Gerbera daisies.
