flower_grass_in_the_pot_mothers_day_craft

Any  Mom loves gardening. Well, not any, but most of. Impress your beloved one with something that you grew yourself!

Craft supplies

Flower pot (yogurt cup size is enough. Or, you can use yogurt cup itself) with soil

Cat grass seeds (very fast to emerge – from just 3 days!)

Acrylic paint and glitter glue to decorate pot; paintbrush

Slim pipe cleaner for flower frame, 3mm green pipe cleaner for stem and leaf

Beads: I, heart symbol, love you Mom

Multicolored pony beads (we had glowing in the dark ones)

Directions

Plant the seeds in the pot, following instructions on the pack (don’t forget to do it in advance since sprouts need time to emerge and grow! Allow about 2 weeks)

Connect 2 chenilles together so you have one long one with no bumps

String the letters, twist, string regular beads and twist again, forming petals

Bend green chenille in half, twist all along to make it stronger for holding flower (don’t forget to form a leaf in the middle of the stem)

Put loose ends from flower through the top loop of stem, secure

Don’t forget to water your grass every day :)

On the Mother’s day, stick the flower into the soil, present to your Mom! Gosh she will be happy!
