take a look {easy mother's day craft}

Mother's Day is right around the corner,
so I thought I'd share this
cute & easy Mother's Day gift idea that
the kiddos could definitely help out with.
These could also be used for
Teacher Appreciation gifts,
Get Well Wishes,
Birthdays....
use your imagination. :)
 


You will need:
tissue paper
a clean tin can
scissors
photo stickers
jumbo popsicle sticks
green paint
paint brush
ribbon
green Easter grass


You will also need some pictures of flowers & leaves.
(You could just as easily free hand these, too.)
I got my clip art from DJInkers.
(Love them!)


Paint your popsicle sticks green,
and set them aside to dry.


Color your flowers.
(This is the part the kids
really like to help out on!)


Then cut out your flowers & leaves.
I printed out a message to put on the flowers,
or have your kiddos write a personalized note on each one.
(Grandma, would love that!) :)


Assemble your flowers.


I used these photo stickers
to assemble my flowers.
Love them.
Quick & easy and
no mess!
Yay! :)


Next, stuff your tin can
with left over Easter grass.


Stick your flowers into the can.
Arrange them how you want them.


Cut a piece of
tissue paper in half,
then set your can in the middle.


Gather the tissue
around the can &
tie with a piece of ribbon.


Cut about 5 strands of ribbon
using ribbon that matches
your tissue paper & flowers.


Tie a knot around your can
& curl your ribbon with a pair of scissors.


You're done!


Enjoy! :)
