laundry lid spring flowers

I absolutely love crafts that use recycled materials. This is one of those crafts. We do an insane amount of laundry in this house. Seriously, I have no idea where it all comes from. With that serious amount of laundry, comes a serious amount of detergent. These little downy fabric softener lids inspired me. I just knew I could come up with a craft for them, and I did. Kirsten thought this craft was hilarious because we not only used laundry soap lids, but we used cupcake liners too. She just loved it! Here’s how you can make this:

What you’ll need:

paper or canvas
3 paper cupcake liners
3 downy bottle lids
green marker
green craft foam

These are the downy bottles I’m talking about:


1. flatten out your cupcake liners and glue them to the top of your paper.
2. put some glue on your downy lid and glue it to the inside of your cupcake liners.
3. using your green marker, draw some stems on your flowers.
4. using your scissors, cut some leaves out of your green craft foam. Glue these leaves on your flowers.

    I knew I needed to save those caps for some reason! I just hate adding add’l clutter to our limited space so I tossed them. Very cute flowers!!

    Jill, you are so creative.
    I would never have thought of using the lids like this. Infact jsut a few days back I disposed the fabric softener bottle :(

    Amazing creations…
