What You’ll Need

4–5-inch wooden cutouts, in circles or hearts
12-inch wooden dowels, for the flower stems
Basswood sheets, thin enough to be cut with scissors
Acrylic paint, in solid or glitter colors
Paintbrushes
Scissors
Hole punch
Letter stickers or paint markers (optional)
Hot glue

How To Make It

Paint the wooden cutouts and wooden dowels with a base coat of acrylic paint in colors that match the flower or heart signs from “it’s a small world.” Allow to dry completely.

For any shapes that are not found already pre-cut (like petals, leaves, or small dots), the desired shape can be drawn onto thin basswood sheets and cut out with scissors. Small dots can be punched out from the wood sheet using a hole punch.

Paint any basswood cutouts with a base coat of the acrylic paint. Allow to dry completely. If more details are needed, use fine-tipped paintbrushes to add details atop the base coat of paint.

If using, paint the letter stickers with acrylic paint in colors that match the signs from “it’s a small world.” Paint markers can also be used to write out any script.

Add any final paint details with a fine-tipped paintbrush. Hot glue the finished wood pieces together to create mini versions of the iconic flower, heart, or leaf signs.
Notes

All cutting and hot gluing should be done by an adult.
