Here's a great Art Attack for recycling old carrier bags!
You will need:
|Take a carrier bag that's a bright colour, like this blue one.|
|The idea is to draw six or seven petal shapes - pointy ovals - onto the carrier bag.|
|Cut them out carefully.|
|For the centre of the flower, cut out a circle from a different coloured bag.|
|Pinch it in the middle, bunching the circle up.|
Hold it in place with some tape.
This can be a bit fiddly!
Then, add on the petals.
Put them around the edges.
|Hold two or three in position, and add on some tape.|
|Keep adding petals in the same way, going around the centre, until you've created a whole flower.|
You could even twist a green bag into a long stalk, holding it in place
with lots of tape.
Stick the flower onto the other end!
|You can experiment with different coloured bags. and different petal shapes, like these rounded white ones with a delicate pink centre.|
|And this one with large petals makes it look quite tropical.|
|Here's another good idea: if you get one of these green garden sacks...|
|... you can twist it up into a thick vine, and tape it into place.|
|Then you can wrap your flowers around it to create a recycled art masterpiece!|
They look great if you use them to decorate your room or as some party decorations.
Try it yourself!
