Flowers and Mother’s Day go together like hugs and kisses – which also goes with Moms. Today, let’s put a little twist on those pre-made floral arrangements and make some pressed flowers. Littles can help to make with this one, but only with the flower collecting, as the rest of the project involves handling glass. I recruited two of my little nieces out to the yard and we helped ourselves to some of Nanny’s blooms (although they were more interested in the dandelions!).

Eventually I steered them to the garden and we collected enough flowers to put in our frames. One would be for their Mum (Christine) and one for Nanny. They picked out the ribbon and then I released them back to their mother. This way I could finish the frames without the fear of little fingers getting cut. Here’s how I did it:
What You’ll Need:
- Little helpers
- Picked flowers
- Two pieces of glass (unused photo frames are a great option)
- Clear tape
- Hot glue gun and sticks
It’s just that easy – 10 minute pressed flowers (minus flower picking) gift any Mom – or Grandma. The girls were very happy to see their carefully picked flowers gifted to their mom and Nanny, and even happier when it was displayed on the wall!
