Today’s flowerbed is inspired by my friend. She told me one day that she wanted half circle flowerbeds for the current starter SF house.
I made it so that two of the half circles make a perfect circle when they’re put together.
This is basically a little twist on yesterday’s circle flower bed, but in case anyone is interested, here is the tutorial.
First, draw a circle on a piece of thick paper, cut the circle out, and fold it in half like the picture below. If you are using 5mm thick foam board like me, measure 5mm from the folded center, and cut it off.
On a foam board, draw along the line of the half (minus 5mm) circles. You will need 4 of these.
Cut the half circles out, and peel off the paper on both sides.
Hot glue two pieces together to make 2 thicker pieces.
Measure the length of the straight side, and cut a strip of 1.5mm tall walls out of a foam board.
Make longer strips for the curbed walls. Please refer to “the circle flowerbed tutorial” for the brick texture making.
Glue on all the walls like below.
At this point, you should have two half circle flowerbeds like these.
Paint the bricks the same way as the circle flowerbed.
Once you plant all your flowers, it’s best to coat the soil with glue and water (5:5 ratio) mixture to avoid unfortunate plucking. Make sure your glue dries clear.
I hope my friend likes these flowerbeds! 😀
