Marigolds for sale
In India marigolds are always available. They are used for weddings, decorating homes, cars and even delivery trucks. They are placed in woven baskets and sold by vendors. Check out our version of our marigolds for sale.
Students created a basket by weaving thin strips of paper, then cut and added a fringed piece of burlap. Students added painted paper flowers, cut around the edges to give the flowers a 3-dimensional look. Tracers were available but many students chose not to use them to create their flowers. Lastly students used paint and oil pastels to add leaves and vines around their basket.
