Three easy, Mother’s Day floral crafts you can make

I was holding out on you yesterday when I posted my roundup of 12, moss inspired crafts and home accents. I had a few more moss crafts to share, and then I decided that they would make beautiful, DIY Mother’s Day gifts instead. So, today I’m featuring three pretty and mossy, DIY floral designs you can make for Mother’s Day. First up is the Purple Posy Package. (And by all means, use flowers in your mom’s favorite color.)

Mom would love this! And it's an easy DIY, too. make a Purple Posy Package, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 4” ball and 5” cube
  • Ranunculus, 26 stems (Diane used a purple/lavender combo)
  • Reindeer moss in dark green
  • Wired ribbon in lavender, 1-1/2″ x 2 yds.
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; wood skewers, two; floral shears; floral pins; serrated knife; old candle or bar of soap; ruler

To make a Purple Posy Package:

1. Wax the blade of the serrated knife with a candle stub or bar of soap. Cut the 4” ball in half. You’ll use just one half, so save the second half for another project.
2. Break the wood skewers in half. Glue one half-ball onto the top of the foam cube, and insert the wood picks between the pieces for additional hold.
3. Glue moss all around the sides of the cube, covering the sides completely. Trim any shaggy ends. Let the glue dry.
4. Cut two, 18″ ribbon lengths and wrap around the bottom and opposite sides of moss-covered cube, securing the ends at the center top with floral pins.
5. Trim flower stems to 2″ long. Apply glue to the ends of the stems and insert them into the half-ball.
6. Cut 18, 2″ ribbon lengths and twist into loops. Glue loops to the half-ball, in-between the flowers.

An easy centerpiece, wrapped up in ribbon and moss to look like a package. Make it for Mother's Day.

      Hi Lisa, You could really change up the purses, based on the theme, the season, etc. I think you could even use Christmas papers and make these for the holidays, don’t you? Or as it’s Teacher Appreciation Week, you could use fun scrapbook papers with a school theme for a favorite teacher . . . or . . . o.k., I’ll stop now! My mind is racing ahead on this one! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon
