Give a craft on Mother’s Day


Looking for a gift that you can make with your own hands for mom on Mother’s Day? Look no further! CW found five cute, lightweight and durable items that kids enjoy making themselves.

Topiary postcards with your own hands

This simple yet stunning craft is the quintessential Mother’s Day gift that includes two things most moms love: postcards and flowers.

What you need:

  • Dried flowers
  • School glue (e.g. Elmer’s)
  • Fine ink pen
  • Card paper or blank notebooks
  • The lids of the jars are round (like a stencil for a topiary head)

Step 1: Cut the paper to the size you want. Cover the jar with a lid at the top of the paper (placed vertically). This round area will obviously be the pinnacle of topiary design.

Step 2: Spread the glue on the paper inside the lid of the jars, holding it firmly in place, then remove to form a perfectly round circle of glue.

Step 3: Pour your dried flower petals onto your circle of glue. Shake the card to remove excess petals and you have now created the top of your topiary plant.

Step 4: To make the trunk, draw two thin vertical lines. Start drawing the pot by making two thin vertical lines (forming a long thin rectangle) under the trunk.

Step 5: For the base of the cough draw diagonal lines at an angle inwards at the bottom and then a horizontal line at the base to form the bottom of the pot.

Step 6: Write “Happy Mother’s Day!” inside the drill or anywhere on the map.

Step 7: Punch holes in the top of the card if you want to hang it as a gift, and tie a ribbon or twine in the loop.
