Mother’s day craft ideas

As promised, me and the boys have been busy making some mother’s day crafts to give you ideas to try.

A Heart Bouquet

You will need:

  • a toilet roll insert
  • coloured card
  • scissors
  • a stapler
  • green paint
  • paint brush
  • self adhesive diamante strips

The boys made one each, so to begin we painted the toilet roll inserts green, whilst these dried I cut the coloured card into strips and we began making our hearts. To make the hearts, we folded the strips in half and then bent each end into the crease like shown below. Once each strip was bent into the desired heart shape, I stapled to secure (with the help of Noah and Tommy).

Once the toilet roll inserts were dry we took some green strips and stapled them to the bottom like shown below, these are to be the leaves.

After the leaves were in place it was time to staple the hearts we made earlier to the insert as well, we took our time here and some of the hearts had to be stapled to each other for extra support. Once we had a full bouquet we added a diamante strip to each insert. Finally we used the scissors to cut the leaves into a point.

This on really is simple, all you need is:

  • A4 white card
  • paint
  • decorative bows
  • glue (we used glue dots)

To begin we folded our card in half and picked out the colour paints we wanted to use, the boys chose red and yellow for the flowers, and of course we picked green for the stems.

I painted the boys hands in each colour and they pressed down onto the card, creating the flowers. Afterwards they used a paint brush to add the stems.

Once dry the boys stuck a purple bow onto each bouquet using glue dots.

Tissue paper bouquet

Another super simple one, all you need is:

  • A4 white card
  • coloured tissue paper
  • glue (we used a Pritt Stick and glue dots)
  • decorative bows
  • felt tips

For this one Tommy chose blue tissue paper for the flowers and Noah chose red. We started by folding the card in half, then I helped the boys to make a bouquet shape with the Pritt Stick, the boys then used their selected coloured tissue paper to create their flowers. The boys then drew a bee buzzing around their bunches (with a little help from mummy). Lastly they stuck a bow on each using glue dots.

3D flower card

This one is still simple, it’s just a little more time-consuming, like the first. You will need:

  • A4 white card
  • coloured card
  • scissors
  • a stapler
  • glue

For this one we made the hearts the same way as for the Heart Bouquet. Then we stapled 12 of them together to create a wreath shape. Once complete we folded the white card in half and then used glue to stick the 3D flower on. See, simple.
