Step 2: Give color to the flowers
Start by colouring the flowers and the leaves.
Here we used watercolour paint. You can use any colouring tool of your choice, but keep in mind that we need to write Mother’s Day messages on the petals of the flowers.
Note: On the template, there are six flowers in total. And on three flowers, we would be writing the Mother’s Day messages. And three other flowers would be stuck on top of the flowers with written messages. So make sure, the three flowers on which you are gonna write are painted using light colours so that the written messages are visible.
After colouring, use black marker pens to draw outlines on the flowers and leaves.
After that, kids can write short, touching messages they want their mom to hear on all the petals of the flowers. Make sure kids write the messages only on three flowers, painted with light colours.
Now, cut all the flowers and leaves out.
Easy Mother’s Day flower craft with love messages for moms(free flower template available)
On a popsicle stick, apply some glue, and stick a flower with handwritten messages.
After sticking, apply some glue to the centre portion of this flower. (Make sure you don’t apply any glue on the petals, but only in the centre).
After that, stick a plain flower without written messages on top of it.
Now, peel the petals of the flowers a little backward towards you, so that the flower on the top looks like it’s half-opened and offer a sneak-peek of the love messages for your mom.
You can use these flowers in different ways. You can put them in small pots, stick them on a card, frame them, etc.
