Floral Mother’s Day Gift Idea

Mother's Day Floral Gift

Flowers have a large number of meanings. They symbolize beauty, magnificence and love. I would like to give my mom flowers on Mother’s day to show her, what she means to me.  But flowers will wilt and end up in the trash. I want to give her something to remember. So I decided to make a handmade gift.

Level of difficulty: easy
You will need:

  • white or painted cardbord
  • plastic flowers
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors or cutter
  • a ribbon, if you like to hang it up

 1. First cut out any shape you like. If the cardbord is thick, it is easier to use a cutter. But it works also with (kitchen) scissors and it’s safer. Don’t forget the holes for the ribbon.

cut the flowers3. In the first place use the hot glue gun to pin the big leaves and flowers to the cardbord. A normal glue stick would not be enough, because the flowers would’t stick together.

Little leaves5. In the end use the small flowerheads to complete your work.
