I like having the boys make something fun or cute for the grandmas for Mother’s Day. A couple of years ago, they did a cute frame and some handprint flowers. Last year, for my mom we did a little flower pot with some cute picture flowers. It’s simple, easy to make, and cute! A perfect grandma gift for Mother’s Day!

Awwww! 🙂 With that quote on the flower pot, then picture flowers seemed the perfect thing to put in! Those were also very easy to make. All you need is some paper, photos, and large popsicle sticks (these were the already colored ones, though you could easily paint some).

Then, find some pictures where you can cut the faces out into a nice-size circle for the center of the flowers. Glue everything together, even add a leaf if you like. Then, for some added fun, attach magnets on the back. Flower magnetsWith that simple addition to the back, grandma can enjoy the flowers but use the flower pot for something else! They looked really cute on great-grandma’s fridge! 🙂
