If you’re looking for a great Mother Day’s gift, these adorable DIY Mother’s Day Flower Pots can’t be topped. Easy to do and one gift that will be around for forever!
I love Mother’s Day. It’s one of those holidays where mom’s all over the world get to kick their feet up and be spoiled a bit. (and rightfully so) And while real flowers are nice, we all know that unfortunately they just don’t last that long.
This is where having your kiddos make you a homemade Mother’s Day gift is just the best. Not only can you treasure it forever, but it’s a gift that you can literally display for as long as you want.
(Don’t get me wrong…getting chocolate for mother’s day is perfectly wonderful, too!)
Can these homemade Mother’s Day flower pots be made without adult supervision?
When it comes to crafting, adult supervision is always recommended. And while these are for mom, have dad or grandma and grandpa supervise so the gifts can be a surprise! (These are also great for students to make at school to take home and surprise their moms with!)
How long does the paint need to dry on the outside of the flower-pot?
Depending on the type of paint you use, it may be just a few short minutes. The drying time can also depend on how thick the paint is being applied as well. It’s always a good idea to allow at least 30 minutes to an hour for the paint to dry. If you’re unsure if it’s ready, touch it barely with your fingertip to see if it’s still wet.
Why are homemade gifts some of the best gift options there are?
Anyone can head to the store and buy something, right? But when you take the time to learn something new and try to make a craft for someone special, it shows that you care and that you’re putting in time and effort to give them something special. That’s not to say that store-bought gifts aren’t great, but there is something truly special about homemade.
