Instructions

1. Cover your work area with freezer paper, newspaper or waxed paper to protect the surface.
2. Break open the narrower end of the egg just a little bit. Empty the contents of the egg and wash the egg with soap and water. Pat the egg dry with a paper towel. Repeat this process for as many daffodils that you plan to make.
3. Place the Dudley's orange tablet into a cup.
4. Add ½ cup warm water to each cup.
5. Add 3 Tablespoons of vinegar to the orange color.
6. Stir the color until the tablet is dissolved.
7. Place the eggshell into the dye cup until it is the color that you would like the center of your daffodil to be.

8. Let the eggs dry.
9. Paint your buckets yellow and allow them to dry.

10. Paint the wooden dowel sticks green and allow them to dry.

11. To cut out the daffodil petals, make a triangular pattern with a hole in the middle that is slightly smaller than the egg. The pattern is based on a 4 ½" equilateral triangle with some slight curves so they look like petals. Cut out two of these petal triangles for each flower.

12. Cut a four-pointed "star" out of the green felt, making sure it was large enough to cover the circle inside the yellow petals.
13. Use the yellow felt circle that was cut out, to place on the center of the inside of the egg. You can also use pinking shears to "decorate" the edge of this circle.
14. Glue the two triangular petals together as shown in the image.

15. Glue the dowel stick to the green felt star.

16. Put the petals on the back of the orange egg and then glue the green star with the stick onto the back of the egg and the flower.

17. Glue the small yellow felt circle inside the center of the egg.
18. Cut two pieces of the green ribbon about 2/3 the length of your dowel rod. Put glue on the bottom 1 ½" inches of one piece of the ribbon and wrap it around the dowel as shown in the image. Put glue on the second piece of ribbon and wrap it around the first one.

19. Glue some white rickrack on the bottom part of the yellow buckets for added extra decoration.
20. Using a knife, cut a piece of floral foam that will fit into the bucket.
21. Place some Spanish moss on top of the foam.

22. Stick your flower into the foam and you are done!

Dudley's Helpful Hints

• Empty and prepare extra eggshells in case some break during the crafting process.
• Make multiple daffodils and "plant them in separately or put several together in one larger pot.
