Naptime Craft-Along {NO SEW fabric flowers}

So excited for this Naptime Craft-Along!
Get your kids to bed, then grab your glue gun and a cup of coffee! It’s time to get your craft on!

Why do we do a naptime craft-along? We simply want to give you permission to stop in the middle of your day to do something creative! Especially as moms, we often feel like we don’t have much to show for all the work we’ve put in at the end of a day! But we find that taking a short time to focus on creating something is satisfying and stress-relieving! {and of course, feel free to join us even if you don't have kids, or if your kids don't nap!}

We gave you a supplies list a few days ago so that you could be prepared today! Here is the list once again!

long fabric scraps (any patterns or colors you like!)
scissors or rotary cutter
wooden dowels (any size works, but we used 3/16" by 12" long- look for a bag of them precut, or buy them individually and cut them to size)
felt pieces
hot glue gun
colored spray paint/spray paint materials (optional)

Here’s today’s craft:

Make one, or an entire bouquet! Give them as gifts, or set them in your own home! Your hubby will never have to hear you complain about dying flowers anymore! This tutorial is found on an amazingly creative blog Dana MADE. Click on these fabric flower instructions!

happy creating!
