A Mother's Day Bouquet That Won't Die in 3 Days...Promise!....

It's hard to believe that May is just a day away and with May comes Mother's Day.  I am sharing a craft idea with you that the girls made last year. 

Please excuse the cluttered fridge.  I'll admit, I don't have a pretty fridge, but it keeps the food cold and that is good enough for me!




First paint your child(s) hands.  This always includes a lot of giggles...
Then have them make a hand print.  Make sure they spread their fingers... 
Next, paint popsicle sticks green... 
Once dry, cut the hand prints out like so... 
Cut a rectangle, square, oval, star...whatever floats your boat....out of paper.  I used scrapbook paper.  Since I don't have time to scrapbook anymore, I have to find ways to use it!... 
Laminate the hand prints and flower pot.  I just bought sheets from Staples.

Glue the hand print to the popsicle stick... 
Glue them all to the back of the flower pot.  Hot glue works best. 
Glue magnets on a clothespin and glue it to the back of the flower pot... 
Voila!  And there is my cluttered fridge again!... 

And there you have it!  A bouquet that won't die in three days and has tiny hand prints that you will treasure forever!


As always, use care when handling a hot glue gun.  I do not recommend letting your child do it by themselves unless you feel they are old enough.  If that is the case, then use only under adult supervision.
