You can call me Flower if you want to.

Mother's Day is around the corner...
Don't buy flowers this year, make them!

We think these are so cute and will brighten up anyone's day.

Cut 2" hearts out of felt for the petals of your flower.
Pinch the bottom tip of the heart around the end of your stick and hot glue.
Glue 3-5 heart petals on each stick, they all should different. 
Once your petals are in place, wrap the bottom of your flower pedals with floral tape.
Glue on some leaves to complete your flower.

Easy. Breezey. Beautiful. Cover-jar.

Pour a small amount of paint into a jar and rotate to evenly coat the inside.
Turn your jar upside down on wax paper and let paint drip out.
Once the excess paint is out, turn it right side up and let it dry!

Having water in your jar will ruin the paint job!
If you decide to use real flowers, be sure to sneak in a cup with water.

We think they look like Dogwood flowers.
