After our delicious breakfast, we made these adorable mother's day keepsakes.  


Materials Used:


Clay Pot(Michael's $1.99 each)
Patio Paint (Michael's $1.99 each)
1 bag of Super Moss(Michael's about $6)
Styrofoam (Jo Ann's $3)
6 Silk yellow flowers (Jo Ann's $1.99)
Daisy flower clips (Jo Ann's for $1.99 each)
Glue gun
scissors


Do it Yourself Mother's Day Flower Pot


Step 1 Paint the pots(ours took three coats)



Step 2 When paint is dry, decorate.




Step 3 Glue the styrofoam into the pot.



Step 4 Take the silk flowers and cut/separate the stems.  When you are finished, stick them down into the center of the styrofoam.  



Step 5 Take a piece of moss, cut out a circle about the size of the pot and  then, fold it in half, and cut a small hole from the center of the moss(so the stem will slide through).



Step 6 Slide the moss over the stem and glue onto the top the styrofoam.



Step 7 Cut the tag of off the daisy and clip onto the stem.





What are your plans for Mother's Day?
