T-minus 3 days until Mother's Day - eep! Don't worry, I've gotcha covered. I decided to bring this easy peasy diy out of the artsocial archives this week because a) I'll be using it (mom, look away!) and b) it's so beautiful and easy. Let's make them every week, k?
Originally this diy was for flower party favors, but really they work oh so well as gifts for any occasion. Thus the diy reeemix :)
+ flowers (from bunches of wild flowers to big statement flowers, anything goes!) + kraft paper (I used the thicker 8.5 x 11 sheets) + baker’s twine or string + gift tags (optional) + ziplock bags + paper towels + scissors + tape (clear or washi)
01 Roll a sheet of kraft paper into a cone shape. Make sure the shape fits the flowers you’ve chosen (I opted for a tall, narrow shape for my flowers). Secure with clear or washi tape. Repeat for each bouquet.
02 Wrap kraft paper cone with twine. Add gift tag to one end of the twine. Tie ends together to make a bow. Repeat for each bouquet. P.S. for my gift tags, I simply cut small rectangles of the kraft paper, punched a hole at the top, and stamped “xoxo” on each (which you can also write with pen, white pastel, or paint).
03 Prep flowers by cutting them down to the proper size. Wet a sheet of paper towel, wrap it around the end of the flower, and place it into a ziplock bag. Repeat with each flower. This will keep the flowers hydrated until your mama can get them home.
04 Place the flower into the kraft paper cone and you’re good to go, homegirl. Pair it with the perfect card to score some major points.
Happy Mother's Day, friends!
