For the spring shrub in the picture above, I simply collected a few fallen branches in the forest, placed them in a vase and decorated them with butterflies, flowers and paper leaves. A beautiful spring decoration is ready for your room!

For crafting you need:

To all children: It's easy to get burned on hot glue. Please have your parents glue the flowers and leaves or use scotch tape or all-purpose glue to attach the flowers and leaves.

I hope you enjoy tinkering and look forward to the next DIY with you! 😊 In the next episode of Suzu's handicraft lesson we will make a funny caterpillar out of paper with which you can race. Are you there again?
