7 Options For a Handmade Mother’s Day Bouquet


Motherā€™s Day is coming up at the end of this week and of course, I am all about celebrating this holiday. šŸ˜‰ One of my ā€œthingsā€ is that I canā€™t stand when Ben spends money on flowers. Fresh cut from outsideā€¦wonderful. The potted hydrangea that my brother gives me that I replant every yearā€¦wouldnā€™t trade it for the world. $20 or more for a bouquet from the storeā€¦no need. I realize that this is very special to some and I think that it is all about the sentiment, but for us, at least not yet, there isn’t that sentimental story behind it, so, no need.

I made some recycled flowers for Valentineā€™s Day with the kids and thought that making flowers would be the perfect idea for some Motherā€™s Day presents. There are some really great crafts out there that will get a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the counter, some are even recycled (bonus!). Ā An added benefit is that they last a bit longer and bring along a sentimental value to them.

Make one kind or make them all, below are my favorite picks for handmade flowers!

1. Made out of egg cartons and old magazine pages, a Recycled Flower Bouquet is the perfect way to reuse and decorate at the same time!



2. Heart shaped flowers like the ones seen here are so cute and look like a really simple craft to do with the little one!

3. Classy Mommy brings us another great, easy to makeĀ Spring Flower Tissue Paper Craft! These would look adorable on a counter in a cute tea cup like she has it displayed.

4. The art of paper folding flowers is another great craft. It can be made easy for the kiddos or a bit more intricate for the adults. Here is a great kids paper flower craft from Kiwi Families!

5. Ā I LOVE this Cupcake Liner Flower craft from Parenting.com. There are endless possibilities for colors, designs, and it is easy for children to do. Those bright colors would look perfect in a flower bouquet!

6. Have left over paint chips? Create a beautiful, colorful bouquet out of them for the special mom in your life. Make it in shades of their favorite colors! B-Inspired Mama shows us how… Kids Paint Chip Flower Craft!

7. I love this adorable Shape Flower bouquet and vase that First Palette shows us. This one would be great for little or big kids to do. You can even use scrapbook paper for more of a “busy” look!
