We love that kids can paint or color this flower template on their own! We painted the template because we liked how bright and colorful it made the flowers, but you can also color with pencils, markers or crayons too.

Underneath the colored flower is a blank flower where you can write all of your messages to Mom! Younger kids can tell you what messages they would like you to write while older kids can write their own.
You can even adapt this craft for a best friend, all about me craft, or any other holiday too!

Supplies Needed to Make a Flower Template Craft
– Paint, coloring pencils or markers to color your flower
– Popsicle Sticks
– Green paint for the popsicle sticks and clothespins – we used this color of green
-Clothespins – we used these mini clothespins
Directions to Make a Flower Template Craft
1. First print off our flower template. Grab the full resolution flower template printable at the bottom of this post.
You’ll need to print 2 copies. One for the top flower and one for the bottom. Cut out each flower and one circle.
2. Paint or color your flowers! You can also decorate them with stickers, rhinestone stickers, pom poms or any other craft supplies you have on hand.
We made two flowers so we need one white flower template for each colored flower.
3. Glue your two templates together by gluing in the center circle part only. Then using the extra circle provided on the free printable flower template, trace around your picture.
If you want to make it without a picture, use the circle to trace a different colored cardstock for the center of your flower. We also traced an extra pink one to border the picture and then trimmed the picture a little so that the pink border shows through. This is an optional step.
4. Paint your popsicle sticks and clothespins green. Tape or glue the popsicle stick to the back of your flower.
5. Now write your messages inside! If you are making the flower without the picture, add MOM to center of your flower.
That’s it – we love how simple and fun this easy Mother’s Day craft idea is! We especially love that kids can write their own special messages to mom too. Mom will love getting this for Mother’s Day!
