Mother’s Day Craft: Egg Carton Bouquet

These handcrafted flowers won’t wilt

Flowers are a timeless way to show the mothers in your life that you care on Mother’s Day —this year, take it up a notch and give a bouquet that won’t wilt. Get the kids started on this one, dads, but leave the painting up to them for a special gift from the heart.

You’ll need:

  • Cardboard egg carton
  • Washable paint
  • Green paper
  • White glue or hot glue
  • Drinking straws
  • Craft pom-poms

Cut the egg carton into sections with four cups each (a standard 12-egg carton will give you three flowers). While the kids are painting these, cut leaf shapes out of paper and glue to straws.

Once flowers have dried, glue a pom-pom to the center of each. Turn the flowers over and affix a straw to the back of each (hot glue works best for this).

Optional: Craft stores sell cardboard flower pots that can turn these into a lovely bouquet ready for display year-round. A block of dry foam will help them stay upright.
