Grandchildren Flowers – a mother’s day Michael’s craft

I love giving grandchildren flowers as Mother’s Day gifts – fun way to involve the kids and still give a cute gift.  So today I have a quick tutorial on making Grandchildren Flowers – super easy!!

First up, a trip to Michaels – it’s a go-to for us when we need supplies.

Once inside, find the aisle with all the little wooden cutout things – there is so much potential in this one little section alone!!

I grabbed 5 wooden flowers (I think they’re $0.29 each) and a couple of wooden dowel rods (those long wooden sticks) then you’ll also need to find some paint and a flowerpot.  I cut the dowel rods into shorter pieces using my kitchen scissors.

Now, the fun part for the kids – all kids love to paint!  Let them decorate their flower.  Obviously they paint differently than I would, but I just tell myself to go with it.  Also have them or you paint all the dowel rods green – they will be flower stems.

Let dry and either write their name on the front with a paint marker or cut out some vinyl and stick their names on (that’s what I did this time).

Hot glue the stem to the back of the flower – nothing fancy here:

Cover the hole in the pot with a piece of tape then fill it with wheat or rice or whatever you have sitting around – that’s it!  Stick the flowers in and you’re done!

This is for my mom – right now my kids are the only grandkids, but my brother and his wife are expecting (we’re so excited!!) so that’s who the blank flower represents – I’ll just add a name later.
Another idea for big families is what I did for Trevor’s mom a few years ago – he’s one of 9 siblings, so his mom has 40+ grandkids – too many for a normal-size pot!  So I made 9 separate pots, one representing each family, and then she lined them up on her mantel to show off her posterity.
Anyways, quick and thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day – Grandchildren Flowers!  You still have plenty of time to make this – go try it!!  And, I think I should have Michael’s Ads on the blog today, so enjoy those :)

    So, so cute! I wish my kiddos were little, I would so have them help me make this. I’m going to send Vanessa over to see it, might be something she could do with her kids. :) I adore the “blank” ones, that was such a great idea!
