Mother's Day 2015 - Last Minute Craft Ideas
Happy Mother's Day! Please share.
Mother's Day doesn't have to put a deep hole in your pocket. Gift giving on this day should be easy.
In this blog I will show you how I made this colorful desktop flower pot for less than $5.
Trip to the Dollar Store
Browse the craft section
Birds or butterflies
Toppings (marbles, shells, etc. Be creative!)
Start the flower pot off by gluing two popsicle sticks in an "L" shape. The third stick will not be long enough to make a perfect triangle but don't worry, your pot will be adorable. Glue the stick on top of the previous two.
You will continue this pattern of stick gluing until you are satisfied with the height or until you run out of popsicle sticks. Let dry. (In the photo I did not :/)
Next you will cut the floral foam into the shape of the flower pot, squish it into place. This will aid in the arrangement of your artificial flowers.
Flowers can be snipped down to size of flower pot. I used a pair of wire cutters.
Once desired arrangement is finished, add birds, butterflies, etc. Add a mini picture frame to complete this project.
Your one of a kind gift is ready! Make this Mother's Day a special one with love. ~Bits
