Mother’s Day Flower Kids Project

1 May

Mother’s day is just around the corner!!  Here is a cute and easy craft project that you can make for your Mom! What Mom doesn’t like flowers, especially ones that are made with your hands!!!  You could even add a picture of yourself to the center of the flower!

Finished Flower

Gather all of your materials:

5 sheets of colored paper or enough to make  10 hands

4″ circle cut from scrapes from the colored paper for hands

1 sheet of green paper

Paint stick ( I went to my local Walmart and they gave me one FREE)

Glue

Scissors

Pen to trace handprint

First Trace your hand 10 times on different colored paper.

 We used 5 different colors,

and drew two hands on each

Next, Cut out all the hands and round the bottom edge

Lay your paint stick on the green paper and figure out how thick you want your stem

I made mine 2″ wide

Also draw one or two leave shapes out of the green paper

Line the ridged part of  the paint stick with the top of your paper

You should have extra paint stick hanging off the edge on top

and then some that is not covered by the paint stick on the bottom

Draw a line on the stem where the end of the paint stick is

Cut off this section.

Glue the paint stick to the Green stem

Turn stem over to the green side.

Cut a 4″ Circle out of one of the colors that you used for the hands

Glue to the top of the paint stick( The part that is hanging off of the top edge)

Starting on the upper left hand edge of the circle

Place a small amount of glue on the front side of the circle

Lay your first hand down.

Continue all the way around the circle until you have all the hands glued down

Space as needed.

Glue the leaves to the stem.

If you want to add a picture add it to the center of the flower.

Finished Flower

    Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
