How to Make Wallpaper Wax Flower Sculptures

This craft is all about taking ugly wallpaper and transforming it into beautiful 3-dimensional flowers. This craft only has 3 steps and is pretty simple to complete once you get the hang of it. You will need an adult, such as mom or dad, to assist you with dipping the wallpaper flower structures into hot wax. But other than that, you can complete these on your own.
