Tip: When working with the Flower Soft, it is best to take a little pinch at a time out of the jar and put in another container or on a piece of paper to work with. Loosen up the Flower Soft to make it fluffy.
Mix the Christmas green and Shamrock green Flower Soft together.
Take the Flower Soft glue and draw a curved line above the eyes, where the Haku Lei will go. Sprinkle the green mix onto the glue. Gently pat it in place so it sticks to the glue. This green mix represents the “ferns and greenery” in the Haku Lei.
Draw another line of glue right above. Take whatever color mix you want and sprinkle it on the glue. This mix will represent the “flowers” in the Haku Lei. Let glue dry.
