This is a fun craft to add a bit of colour to your spring or Easter decorations.

Younger children will need a lot of help, and it’s easier if you do it together. I am not sure that even my 9 year-old could have made this craft totally on his own.

It’s a fun family activity that the kids will enjoy!

How to Make Jellybean Pussy Willows

Spear jellybeans with toothpicks.

This is the hardest part, as it can be difficult to break the shell of the jellybeans, and some slips of the hand, might result in a toothpick stabbing or two! Parents might want to take over this step. However, I still got plenty of stabs. It’s worth it though. Trust me!

Hold the stick in your hand and place one speared jellybean up against the stick.

Start wrapping the floral tape tightly around the stick, covering the toothpick and keeping it in place.

When that toothpick is nearly covered, add the next toothpick.

Keep winding your way around the stick, adding toothpicks, until you reach the top.

We found it easier to rotated the stick than to move the floral tape round and round.

The result is a beautiful display of colour.

Try adding them to a bouquet of real pussy willow for a colourful arrangement.

For another easy craft, try making these cherry blossoms using tissue paper, a stick and a hot glue gun!
