Happy Mother's Day Banner

Every Mother's Day, I can't help but think about my own Mother and what she taught me throughout my life. In honor of this special day, I want to take a minute to say thank you to all the amazing moms out there like mine. To spread the love this month, we shared a cute craft you can make for the mothers in your life.

When I was younger, my mom would give me advice on what to do and what not to do all the time. Sometimes I would listen, and sometimes I wouldn't. Now all of my children are adults, and I hear myself echoing the same things my mother would tell me. Looking back on it all these years later, I can say she was, and still is, a very wise woman.

As we all celebrate Mother's Day, let's remember how important our loved ones are and the role they play in guiding our lives. We wish you a happy and memorable Mother's Day filled with love, joy, and laughter.

Mom's Garden of Gratitude: Clay Pot Daffodils

Materials Needed:

  • 6 mini clay pots
  • Multi-colored pipe cleaners
  • Tacky glue
  • Pom Poms
  • Buttons
  • Paper confetti (brown and green)

Instructions:

  1. Fill each mini clay pot with brown or green paper confetti to create a stable base for the flowers.
  2. Fold three pipe cleaners in half, cut 2 inches from each end, and open them back up.
  3. Arrange the pipe cleaners into a star shape and twist them at the middle to keep them in place.
  4. Roll each end of the pipe cleaners up to the center to form petals.
  5. Insert a green pipe cleaner through the middle of the petals and twist it at the back to secure it.
  6. Trim the stem of the daffodil to your desired length.
  7. Glue a button or pom pom in the center of the daffodil for decoration.
  8. Push the finished daffodils into the confetti-filled clay pots and arrange them as desired to create a mini flower arrangement.

Enjoy crafting and have a wonderful Mother's Day!
