1. Giant Fabric Flowers from Purple Twig Studio

These fabric flowers are made similarly to papier mâché. We offer the children many different varieties of fabric, pre-cut into gigantic petal shapes. Then we dip them into fabric stiffener (you can also use diluted Mod Podge) and lay onto balloons to get the rounded shape.

To make the stigma of the plant, you can use chopsticks wrapped with wire and black paper to make the stamen. Find out more from Make-It-Your-Own-Blog. These big, beautiful blooms make a lovely Mother’s Day bouquet!

2. Rainbow Bouquets in Colorful Jars for Mom from Riverside Art Studio

Use tissue paper, Mod Podge, and recycled mason jars to make sweet decoupaged jars. It’s such a fun way to brighten & decorate items from the recycling bin. And those coffee filter flowers are beautiful additions that create such a colorful gift for mom.

We love making these tissue paper flowers! All you need is a recycled egg carton, watercolors, pipe cleaners and tissue paper. The best thing about these flowers? They last forever!
