We are reminded of the fallen soldiers with a poppy. Here is what will be hanging on my door as a way to honor our men and woman who died for our freedom.
First I found the template for the poppy petals on this website and traced them on to the coffee filters. Once they were cut out I crumpled them and put them in the water mixed with food colouring. Afterwards I dried them on a rack.
Once they were totally dried I followed the directions on Martha Stewart’s website.
After I had the flowers assembled I Krylon-ed them with Cherry Red gloss spray paint to add some depth and darken them up.
and pushed a pin through the flower and into the wreath.
If you are going to make one like this, let me know. I would love to see pictures!
