DIY Hand Shaped Flower Bouquet

If you’re looking for a fun Mother’s Day DIY, this Hand Shaped Flower Bouquet is easy to make and will last a lifetime. The moms in your life will love them!

Plus, I was able to reuse products around the house to make it Earth friendly too!

I love when Mila makes me things. Maybe a little too much. I don’t think I’ve ever thrown any artwork or drawing she’s made me. She’s so proud of herself for it too.

For Mother’s Day, it’s always fun to see what kids come up with. Mila loves gifting flowers. When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to recreate it with Mila! She loved how they turned out and it’ll be perfect to add to the bouquet as she grows.

As I stated above, I reused everything for this. Here’s all I used:

  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Stapler
  • Paper Straws
  • Hot Glue

These were super simple to make.

I traced Mila’s hand on thick paper to make a stencil. Then cut it out to trace it on scrapbook paper. Although I only traced four for the picture, we’ll be making more for different family members.

You can make how many you’d like and with different types of scrapbook paper.

Then, cut the hands out. Next, I stapled the two sides together with the print side facing out.

When they’re cut and stapled, spiral the hands so they flutter out. You can make them as curly as you want!

After the flower was made, I hot the paper straws inside to make it look like a stem.

To display, I put them in a glass jar. They look really beautiful. I love that I’ll have a little piece of her at four forever. It’s a lovely Mother’s Day gift I’ll always love.


What is your favorite DIY Mother’s Day gift you’ve ever made or received?
