Here's a fun project for summer, and you can use up those bottle cap lids that sometimes can't be recycled.
With a little green felt, yellow tissue, and brown pom-poms you can make sunflowers from bottle caps. Any cap will work, I used caps from water bottles.
Here's What you'll need.
Make the petals and leaves.
Make the Sunflower Wreath.

You’ll have a lot of fun combining colors, and using up all those little scraps of tissue you just can’t throw away!
I found some neat elastic at JoAnn’s, it folds over, which we don’t need, but it comes in this wonderful green, which we do need.
