It's as easy as this:

 

  1. Transfer the template of the blossom onto the yellow cardboard paper and the four leaves onto the green cardboard paper; carefully cut all parts out, including the holes in the middle of the blossoms.
  2. Cut approx. 4cm off of the yellow roll of crepe paper and tightly wrap one end for 1cm, using the tape to affix it. Now push the crepe paper with the wrapped side first through the hole of the yellow flower petal (see image) and glue it tight using the Pelifix glue stick.
  3. Cut a 30cm piece of of florist's wire off for each daffodil you make. Bend 3-4 cm of one side to an L shape. Push the short end from the backside into the daffodil.
  4. Now "thread" the green leaves onto the piece of wire beginning from the long end. For this, carefully poke a hole into the marked points using the sewing needle and enlarge them, so that the piece of wire fits through. Consequently push the 4 leaves onto the piece of wire. To prevent the leaves from slipping, glue them onto each other using the Pelifix glue stick (see image).
  5. Now, with the wire, the daffodils can be stuck into the ground If the flower arrangement is intended to be a table decoration, just stick the single daffodils with the wire into the halved pieces of cork, after having painted them with PLAKA paint in green (for grass). You can also stick many flowers together into a flower sponge, this way, it makes a great Easter bouquet, that will last forever.
