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!
