Default Make Red Hot pokers for your mini garden

Hi all here we are at the gardening centre. A place to share hints, tips, makes etc!

To start the ball rolling.....................Red hot pokers!


Red-hot pokers:-
Made from cotton bud sticks. Snip cotton bud stick in half and paint the 2 buds red and yellow. When dry paint the stalk. The leaves are little plastic ones that I cut from a full-size bunch of silk flowers. The leaves can also be mad with green paper.
Keep your eyes open for any small pieces of plastic and silk flowers, they are VERY handy. The "soil" for the poker bed is black sponge packing foam.

Have fun and please show us your items hints, tips and makes for your dolls house gardens!

Love,
