It’s almost time to celebrate the Moms we love, so let’s talk about a Mother’s Day Craft that is fun to give and receive. Make one for yourself, hint around to your babysitter that you’d like one or make one for grandma. This adorable keepsake can be made with a few supplies and around an hour of your time.
All you need is a terra cotta pot – I chose a medium size, your favorite acrylic paints, brush of your choice (I chose foam brushes) and your favorite flower from the garden store.
I would love to say that I have a step-by-step tutorial for this craft but 1. You really don’t need it and 2. Taking step-by-step photos with a toddler around that involves paint – not so easy! haha! So…all you need to do is paint your pot your favorite color and let it dry. I chose blue. Then…chose a coordinating color and paint your kiddo’s hand and carefully place it on your flowerpot and pull it away to create an adorable handprint.
See…super cute! I then took a chalk pen and wrote “mom” on the rim of the flower pot. You could use paint if you’re really artsy, a marker or just leave it blank . Totally up to you! I love chalk pens because you can erase and start over if you mess up! I need a little forgiveness when it comes to these kinds of things. I blame in on being left handed – but maybe I just don’t have beautiful writing.
Then, you’re ready to place your favorite flower in the flower pot. I chose these purple Violas that just scream “Spring!”. I don’t know about you…but I’m ready for all the Spring signs I can find.
Here’s an extra credit step – if you really want some extra brownie points, make a little flower cut out with fancy scrapbook paper and place your sweet child’s face right in the middle, attach with hot glue to a bamboo stick or flower stake and stick it right in the flower pot. So. Very. Cute!
There you have it! Just as promised – a super easy and super cute keepsake Mother’s Day Craft that won’t break the bank AND is easy and fun to make. Don’t forget to grab that adorable toddler and snap a picture with their little flower pot. If they’re anything like mine, they’ll be super proud of their work! Happy Mother’s Day.
