Paper roll Flower vase

Things required:

Old news paper

Acrylic paints

glitter or chamkis

Finished Tissue paper roll

Cardboard piece and glue

Cut the paper into the required width. Roll them tightly and stick the end with glue. You can take the help of children to do the rolls. Make a number of these rolls as required.

Take one by one roll and stick it on top of the cardboard roll. This will give strength to the structure. You can also use an empty cardboard box. Once the entire Roll is covered with the paper rolls, leave it for the glue to dry.

Colour with the required acrylic colours. I have used yellow and orrange, and have painted a few green leaves to give a bamboo look. Also it can be decorated with glitters and chamkis.

Once dry, stick a base from the cardboard piece or a piece of plywood. This can be used as a flower vase or penstand.

Try and have fun with simple arts at home and with children...!!!
