Tomorrow is November 11th, Armistice day, here in the UK, and this coming Sunday is classed as Remembrance Sunday. As poppies are the symbol of this remembrance day, I thought it would be fitting to do some poppy related crafts this week. First up, after the success the other week of pumpkin printing, I decided to try poppy printing.
What you need:
A potato (sponges can also be used)
Green paper (or white if you have no green paper)
Black felt tip
What we did:
First of all, I cut the potato in half then shaped it into a rough poppy shape (sort of like a figure of eight shape).
Then I poured out some red paint and let mini-faithful print the poppy shapes onto the paper.
Once dry we added black felt tip circles to the middles to complete them.
