DIY Mother's Day flower pot card


Every year I make these cute flower pot Mother's Day cards with my students, and I adore how they turn out, so I thought I'd share how we make them!

Materials you need:
Construction paper
Scissors
Glue
Yarn or embroidery thread
Marker
Picture of child
(*UPDATE* Printable template available here.)


I cut the flowers differently every year- once with a die-cut, another time by hand (4 flowers/ student x 40 students= major time suck!), and this year with a scrap-booking punch.


I love seeing this part with kids' handwriting- very cute!





**You can use tape or staples instead of glue for a faster process.  When I made these with my class this past week I used staples to attach the string to the pot and close the sides of the pot.  I used tape to attach the flowers and string together.  No mess and no dry time so we could send them home with the kids an hour later! **





Put the flowers in the pot "envelope" so mom can pull them out.




And your card is ready!  Cute, unique, and interactive.  I love making these with my students!  They take some time and require some (well, a lot of) adult assistance, but are very cute when completed!



*UPDATE*
If you didn't catch my link and the top, I've put together a printable template on a new post, with ideas for using to make this project super easy!

  2. Looks like a great idea. A question - what did you use to attach the yarn/thread together? It's difficult to tell. Thanks!

    1. I just used tacky glue to attach the yarn to my flowers and flower pot! Elmer's glue works too, you just need a thick coat and enough drying time! Hope this works for you!

  3. Great idea! My 2 1/2 year old and I made these for my wife and my mother. We made some slight modifications, and the glue is still drying so I can't tell you how well they worked.. haha.. But we added an extra flower, and now they read "I Love You Mom" and "I Love You Grandma" plus my son's picture. Also, at the end of the yarn where it attaches to the pot I tied a knot, with hope that the glue will hold it even better. I also tied a small loop at the other end of the yarn to make it easier to pull, plus get a spot that it can be hung on the wall from. Thanks for the idea! I'm sure that my wife and mother will love them!

  6. Wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing. If you use acid-free paper instead of construction paper, it will last much longer if mom wants to save it.

  8. I tried tacky glue & Elmer's glue and both of these discolored the paper with the words and the face on the picture attached to the flowers. However, I'm making additional ones for my son's "auntie's" and I'm trying to glue two dots on the top & bottom of each flower (so there's no mark's on the middle of the letters or picture). I ended up adding little paper dots to the top of the string as a "pull tab" and let my son color the back of the pot with crayons since he's still too young to cut etc (he's almost 2). Wish there was a way to add pictures on here so you can see how it looks! So cute!

  22. In the United States (USA), celebrations of Mother’s Day began in the early 20th century. Here take a llok at mothers day wishes. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). However, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
