Mother's Day Flower Pot DIY

Create a one-of-a-kind flower pot for Mom this Mother’s Day.

I have yet to meet a mom (myself included) that doesn’t love flowers, especially on Mother’s Day! This year rather than buying mom an expensive bouquet that will fade quickly, give her a special potted flower in a one-of-a-kind pot decorated with colorful fuzzy sticks and pom-poms from Kid Made Modern’s Bright Bundle Craft Kit. You are guaranteed to put a smile on her face! 

Start with a basic terracotta pot, paint it white (or your favorite color from our Washable Paint Set) and get creative decorating it with a design your mom will love. We tried fuzzy stick letters to spell “MOM”, a colorful rainbow, and a pom-pom lined pot.

    3. To make a rainbow pot, glue the fuzzy sticks on in rainbow order, bending them and trimming them as needed. Add pom-poms on the end for clouds.
