Flower Rings for Mom

04.26.10

Here’s a quick little project I thought you might like to make for mom or grandma on Mother’s Day. It easy, and come on, aren’t the results fab? Put a few scraps of fabric on the table in front of your kids and see what lovely things they come up with.

You’ll need just a few supplies:
-A pair of scissors
-Scrap pieces of felt and patterned fabric
-Pipe cleaners
-A fun array of buttons

We  snipped out a few varying shapes and sizes of fabric. I liked the round felt with the scalloped pattern fabric. Layer them as you like and snip a single slit right in the middle.

With the pipe cleaner, make a loop big enough to fit as a ring in the back, and make a little twist to finish the loop.  Then poke both ends through the slit in the fabric, through the button holes, and give the pipe cleaner one more twist on the top to hold everything in place.

And there you have it. Something fabulous for grandma or mom to wear on her special day.

We also discovered that if you make a slightly bigger version you can make mom’s bike pretty too.

Happy snipping.

This is cute and could also adapt as a napkin ring for serving mom breakfast in bed!

Oh, I love this! I also like Lee’s napkin ring idea. This would be fun as a party favor or activity for my niece’s 2nd bday party! Thank you for sharing!

These are great. I like the napkin ring idea, too. But I was thinking that I would have my kids make these for their teachers this year. Fresh flowers are always nice, but these will last longer. And, the kids will feel great about giving a gift they made. Thanks for the ideas!

What a fab idea! I ran with it, modified a bit, with a few elementary art classes this week…sorry this is a generic picture but I forgot my camera on the really good day! We’ll be doing a few more next week with the other half of the students…
