Fork Painted Flowers – Mother’s Day Cards

We love how simple it is to make flowers with a fork! You can use a regular fork or a disposable fork. Even a baby fork works well and makes smaller flowers!

The best part about making these cards is you only need paint, paper and a fork!


Supplies to Make Fork Painted Flower Cards

Here are the supplies you’ll need: 

Acrylic Paint – you can also use washable paint but for older kids I prefer acrylic since it’s a little thicker to work with

Colored Cardstock – for the leaves and flower pots

White Cardstock – to make the card

-Fork – any kind of fork works – either a disposable, small regular fork or baby fork

2. Fold a piece of white cardstock paper in half.

Press the fork onto your paper and make sure the whole tip of the fork touches the paper to transfer the design.

3. Make 3 flowers for each card you’d like to make.

Using green paint, draw a stem coming down from each flower.
