Kids Mothers Day Crafts - How to Make an Always Treasured Mother's Day Photo Flower

Kids Mothers Day Crafts - How to Make an Always Treasured Mother's Day Photo Flower

With mother's day getting closer, kids mothers day crafts are becoming popular again, Here is a kids mothers day craft that the kids will love doing. Most moms love flowers, and all love photos of their families. Why not combine those two ideas to give her flowers that will never die and feature cherished photos of her children? These Mother's Day photo flowers are sure to make Mom's big day extra special. Even small children can make them with a little help with the cutting.

Supplies for this mothers day craft:

  • Construction paper, colored card stock or patterned scrapbook paper
  • Glue or glue stick
  • Photos
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Green chenille stems

How to do this craft:

  1. Cut photos into circles. To make it easier, try putting a 50 cent piece, spool of thread or other small, round object on top of the face you want to cut out and tracing around it. Then cut around the circle you drew.
  2. Draw the outline of a flower on a piece of card stock or construction paper, making sure you'll have plenty of room for the photo in the middle. Cut out.
  3. Trace around your original flower on paper in other colors to make as many flowers as you like. Cut them out and set them aside.
  4. Glue a photo onto the center of the first flower. If using liquid glue, take care not to use too much. Wipe any excess off with a paper towel.
  5. If you like, draw more flower shapes on patterned paper or contrasting colors of construction paper or card stock. Make these about 1/4 inch larger than the first ones. Glue the flower with the photo on it onto a larger flower shape, centering it so that it makes an even border.
  6. Attach a chenille stem to the back of the flower with tape. Trim the stem if needed.
  7. Repeat with the rest of your flower cutouts to make a beautiful photo bouquet.

Presentation Ideas

  • Bundle the flowers together and tie a ribbon around the stems. Spread them out above the ribbon so that all are visible.
  • Make a flowerpot to put the flowers in. Use markers or paint to decorate a styrofoam cup, stick some floral foam in the bottom, and stick the stems into it to create a pleasing arrangement. Glue some Spanish moss on top of the floral foam to complete the look.
  • If you prefer, omit the stems and make the photo flowers into magnets. You can buy strips of peel and stick magnets at any craft store. Just cut off the size of magnet that you need, peel off the paper and stick it to the back of each flower.
  • If you want to keep the flowers looking beautiful longer, have an adult help to laminate them before attaching the stems.
