How to Make the Mothers Day Paper Plate Craft

What you need:

  • paper plate
  • paper cup
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • paintbrush
  • acrylic paint (green and peach)
  • craft stick
  • markers (black, green, and pink)
  • color papers (green, purple, yellow, and peach)

Step by Step Tutorial

Grab your paper plate and paintbrush, and give the plate a beautiful pink color.

Step 1

The Pot

Grab your scissors and cup, cutting a slit through the side of the paper cup.

Step 2

After cutting a slit on one side, continue cutting a slit of the same length on the opposite side.

We need to cut the cup in half vertically.

Step 3

Cut horizontally across each piece.

Step 4

The Flower Petals

Draw flower petals with a pencil on your purple paper.

Step 5

Cut a slit in the center of each purple petal after cutting them out from the paper.

Step 6

Gently bend the purple petals inward to create a more realistic appearance, then glue.

Step 7

Grab your pencil and draw a circle on the yellow paper.

Step 8

The Stem

Begin covering your craft stick in green.

Step 9

Cover the whole stick.

Step 9-1

The Face

Cut out your yellow circle and draw a face on it with your markers.

Step 10

Paste the purple petals to the back of the flower’s face.

Step 11

Continue adding petals until it looks like a beautiful flower.

Step 12

The Leaves

Draw two leaf-shaped pieces on your green paper.

Step 13

Cut them out and use your green marker to add lines and veins to the leaves.

Step 14

Draw your next shape on the orange paper.

Step 15

Write the Happy Mother’s Day message with a black marker.

Step 16

Grab your glue stick and apply glue it to the white piece of cup you cut out earlier.

Step 17

Paste your message to the piece of the cup.

Step 18

Glue your green popsicle stick to the back of the flower.

Step 20

Glue the leaves to the craft stick directly beneath the flower.

Step 21

Pull your scissors back out and cut a small horizontal slit in the bottom of the plate.

Step 22

Stick your flower into the opening.

Step 23

Push it down further to make it look like the flower is popping out of the plate.

Step 24

Add glue to the back of your paper cup.

Step 25

Paste your message under the flower.

It should look like a flower pot!

Step 26

Now, you have the cutest craft to make with kids.

Try it out and see how the flower moves.

Step 27

Feel free to customize this flower to your liking by using a different paper color for your flower petals.

You can always take the flower out of its pot and put it back in.
