Mothers Day Crafts Idea #1

Paper Lilies

Lilies are perfect for Mothers Day craft, spring crafts and Easter time. 


  • White or Yellow Construction Paper
  • Yellow Pipe Cleaners
  • Green Card Stock or Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Flower Foam or Clay
  • Plastic Foam Cup
  • Colored Aluminum Foil
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon or Bow

How to Make Paper Lilies

Step 1Cut a circle using the white or yellow paper.   Tip:  The bigger the circle the bigger your lily will be.  You can create several in different sizes.  
Step 2Cut a slit in each circle up to the center.  Glue the two cut ends together to form a cone shape.   
Step 3Cut six small points around the edge of each cone .  Curl the points by rolling them around a pencil.  
Step 4Poke a small hole at the bottom of the lily (the pointed end).  Take your pipe cleaner and curl one end into a small spiral ball.  Poke the other end through the hole to create the stem.  
Step 5Cut out two leaf shapes for each lily using the green paper.  You can use this template here.   Tip:  If you cut your own without using the template, make sure that the stem is wide enough to glue the pipe cleaner on.  
Step 6Glue the pipe cleaner between the two stem cutouts leaving a portion of the pipe cleaner sticking out the bottom.  You will use this end to push into the floral foam or clay.  
Step 7Cover your foam cup with aluminum foil.  
Step 8Place the clay or floral foam in the bottom and press your lilies in place.  
Step 9Decorate your cup vase with ribbon or a bow.  

These lilies will look great sitting on the table.  Lilies are a great Easter decoration, Mother’s Day gift or anytime of the year.

Mothers Day Crafts Idea #2

Painted Vase

Making your own flowers for mom is a personal and perfect gift idea.  So take it one more step and make the perfect vase to match your flowers.  This Mother’s Day crafts is as unique as your mom.

Painted Vase


  • Glass Jar
  • Colored Paints
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue

How to Make a Painted Vase

Step 1Clean your jar and remove any labels.  The best way to do this is to soak it in warm soapy water.  
Step 2Once the jar is cleaned and dry, pick out the colors you want.  Place a few drops of 2 or 3 colors of paint into the jar.  
Step 3Place the lid back on the jar and place it on it’s side on a flat surface.   Tip:  The floor works best for this so that it doesn’t spin off a table and fall.  
Step 4Spin the jar on the floor and let the paint spread out and up to the top of the jar.  You may need to spin this a few times to get the paint spread out.  
Step 5Add additional colors if you want and repeat the spinning process.  
Step 6Remove the lid and place the jar upside down on some wax paper or a paper plate to catch the excess paint.   Tip:  This vase craft idea will take a few days to dry depening on how much paint you used.  To speed up the drying, you can use a hair dryer.  
Step 7Once the paint is completely dry, add some ribbon using the hot glue.  

This vase will have it’s own unique look and no two vases will ever turn out the same.  Since the paint spreads based on what colors are used and how it is spun, each vase becomes a one of a kind.
