If you’re looking for a gorgeous Mother’s Day gift for kids to make this year, this Mother’s Day flower pot craft can’t be topped. Our template makes the flower pot an easy kids craft to make and mom or Grandma will adore the special message hidden inside the pot when she opens it up on her special day.
Mother’s Day is the perfect day let mom put up her feet, relax and spoil her a bit with her favorite things. While freshly cut flowers are gorgeous, it’s so sad when they start to wither away.
That’s one reason I love making flower crafts for Mother’s Day. They are a colorful and beautiful way for mom to enjoy the flowers as long as she wants without having to throw them out.
Grab our template and your craft supplies and get ready for an afternoon of fun creating this colorful flower pot craft for a homemade Mother’s Day gift. The simplicity of the craft makes it perfect for home, school or Sunday school.

Step 5: Use a hole punch to punch a hole on each side of the flower pot rim to add your ribbon in a later step.
Step 6: Gather your flower petals from the template. Fold six of the flower petals in half and leave three unfolded.
Step 7: Add glue on the sides of one of your unfolded flower petals and glue two folded petals on the flower with the folds facing towards each other. Repeat this step to make two more tulip flowers.
Step 8: Add glue at the top of your green craft sticks and attach the tulip flowers to them.
NOTE: If you don’t want to purchase pre-painted green craft sticks, simply paint wood craft sticks with green paint.
Step 9: Open up your flower pot card. Add glue to the back of the green craft sticks and glue them at the top of the card so the stems are down inside the flower pot.
