Prepare the Base: Start with a clean yeast jar as the base for your Sunny Sunflower Petal Person.
Stiffen the Petals: Take orange cotton fabric and use iron-on interface to make it stiff. Press it between folded materials to ensure it holds its shape.
Cut Out Petal Shapes: Using the stiffened fabric, cut out petal shapes. These will form the colorful petals of your sunflowers.
Create the Heads: Cut pieces of brown nylons and sew them closed, leaving an opening. Stuff the nylons with poly-fill to create the heads of your Sunflower People.
Construct the Flower Heads: Cut 80lb green paper into a circle to serve as the base of each flower head. Insert a green pipe cleaner through the paper and glue it down to create the stem.
Attach the Petals: Glue the petal shapes onto the green paper base, folding them in as you go. This will give your sunflowers their distinctive appearance.
Complete the Heads: Glue the stuffed nylon heads in the center of each flower. Add felt pieces for eyes and draw on charming expressions.
Prepare the Base Jar: Fill the yeast jar with plaster and carefully place the Sunny Sunflower Petal People into it. Ensure they are secure and standing upright.
Add Finishing Touches: Stuff dry crafting moss around the plaster inside the jar, creating a natural and appealing base for your Sunflower People.
Allow for Drying Time: Let the plaster dry for approximately two days to ensure it sets completely.
Tie a Raffia Bow: Once the project is fully dry, tie a raffia bow around the neck of the jar, adding a final touch of charm and character.
