Mother’s Day is less than a week away – are you ready?! If not, no worries – I have a fun and simple Mother’s Day craft for you today. Just a quick “hi”, I’m Mandy and I blog at SugarBeeCrafts.com, where fun and simple are my kind of projects!
With just a few supplies, you can create a fun Wooden Flower Bouquet that will stay bright and cheerful season upon season. And you can even involve the kiddos! This is a perfect Grandmother gift – to showcase all her amazing grandchildren.
–vase or small bucket (mine was in the summer section of the craft store), with filler
–wooden flower diecuts
–paint in a variety of colors, paint brush
First you will paint the wooden flowers your color of choice. This is a great step for kids to take on – you can’t really mess it up since it’s just solid painting. After that base color dries, use the paint pen to write on each child’s name. I used a metallic silver and love the shine of the letters.
Now you’ll need to prepare the stems. You can paint them as well – I chose to leave mine natural. With thin dowel rods you can cut them with kitchen sheers, so you don’t need any special tools. Cut to desired length.
To attach the dowel to the flower just use a little hot glue (you guessed it!)
My bucket was filled with a piece of foam and then paper strips. The foam gives the dowel rods something firm to stick into and the paper adds some cuteness. You can find what works best for you. You can also embellish the bucket with vinyl.
That is all there is to it! Any grandma would be excited to receive a Wooden Flower Bouquet of grandchildren – it’s so fun!
