Crafts for Mother’s Day: A handmade bouquet of flowers

This Mother’s Day craft for toddlers, a handmade flower bouquet, is so easy to make. While this is great for toddlers and preschoolers, really kids of all ages could do this. If you trace their little hands and curl the paper fingers, they are the cutest flowers!

Instructions on how to make a handprint bouquet

Step 1

To make these flowers, simply draw the outlines of your hands on cardstock.

I decided to trace my hand and Rory’s hand to make flowers of different sizes. I also used different colors of cardstock for multicolored flowers.

step 2

Cut out the handprint from the cardboard.

step 3

Curl your fingers with a pen or pencil to make the petals flash a little.

This is what our collection of ruffled handprints looked like.

Don’t forget to curl your fingers on the handprint bouquet.

step 4

Take a green pipe cleaner (for the stem) and bend the pipe cleaners of a different color (for the inside of the flower) to connect them. I just twisted them a little and they were secure enough.

step 5

Take the handprint with the ruffled petals and wrap it around the pipe cleaner connecting the base of the hands and attach a piece of tape (or use the glue) to connect them.

step 6

I tied a ribbon around them and put them in a vase!

Believe it or not, the cats haven’t touched them!

Remarks:

If you don’t have a vase, you can use a mason jar. It’s still a great gift. Simply fold the flower stems together to fit if you have a small jar. Just make sure it’s long enough that the petal part doesn’t protrude too far into the jar.

Our experience with this handprint craft for Mother’s Day

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and I wanted to give myself a present!

As many of you may know, my husband is a veterinarian and we both love animals. This means we have a few pets; 3 dogs and 2 cats to be exact.

I love my pets very much, but they destroy everything! We have never been able to have beautiful things in our living room, and that includes beautiful fresh flowers.

I’ve always wanted to have fresh herbs and flowers around the house so Rory and I decided to make our own for my Mother’s Day gift!

Making things for mom is so much fun!

And I have to say these handprint flowers turned out amazing! I still have a handprint flower that I kept as a keepsake.

I mean, what was supposed to be a fun Mother’s Day craft for toddlers turned into something I love. Handprint flowers that I can look at and remember when my daughter was little.
