Play-Doh Rose

015

Play-Doh is not just fun for the kiddos. It is fun for the mommies too. My daughter has been on a huge Play-Doh kick lately. While picking up her piles of dough all over the coffee table, I decided it was playtime for me. Here is a mommy original Play-Doh sculpture.

002

I used one of Mai’s toy rolling pins to flatten out the dough.

003

With one of her toy knives, I cut out a circle.

004

Working from the bottom, I pinched & pleated the circle all the way around to form a pinched cylinder like shape that is slightly pointed on the bottom.

008

I repeated the first two steps & then formed another pinched layer underneath the first, working the two layers together.

009

Continue with these steps 1 & 2 and keep layering until you achieve the fullness for your flower that you would like. Add green Play Doh for leaves.
