DIY:Mother’s Day Crafts

Mother’s Day is coming up and most of us are in desperate need of inspiration. The school year has worn us out, it’s a good thing there are only three weeks until school ends, for the summer of course. Here are some Mother’s Day ideas that you can do yourself.

 

Hand flower:

  1. Trace your hand on a piece of colored paper. Cut the outline of your hand out and curl the fingers by putting the edge of scissors on the fingers and pressing.
  2. Take a green pipe cleaner and rap a yellow pipe cleaner around the top.
  3. Roll the hand cut out around the connected pipe cleaners with the fingers curled out and the yellow pipe cleaner on top.
  4. Glue the edges together to make a flower.

Grass Flower Pot:

  1. Take a piece of green paper and fold it in half hotdog style, or vertically.
  2. Take scissors and cut the folded side about ¾ to the opposite edge. Do this along all of the folded side, making each strip of green about 2-3 cm.
  3. Re-open the green paper and, using a glue stick, place the glue across the length on one side of the paper about ⅕ of the way inside the edge of the paper.
  4. Place the opposite edge of the glued side on the glue and without creasing any of the paper, press down.
  5. Loosely roll the paper up and glue the ending edge to the grass pot.
  6. Glue on flat, cut out flowers onto the top and around the sides.

Delphinium:

  1. Take a floral colored piece of tissue paper, cut 3 in by 11 in.
  2. Roll by starting with the length and rolling across the with about ⅔ across to the opposite side.
  3. Cut the rolled section of the tissue paper into strips of 2 cm.
  4. Flip the paper over vertically.
  5. Put a stick on the edge of the unrolled tissue paper and glue it to the edge. Wrap the rest of the cut up rolls in a downward spiral, make sure to glue the tissue paper onto the stick along the way.
