As Mother’s Day is approaching, you might be trying to figure out what on earth your kids (or students) can make for their mothers on this special day that hasn’t been done before. After hours of brainstorming and searching online, I found the COOLEST Mother’s Day Craft for kids to wow their moms with. Are you ready?
COFFEE FILTER (Tie-Dye in our case) ROSES!!!
How this idea came together was I first found these really cute Mother’s Day jars at the 99 Cents Store back in April. So with Mother’s Day already a while away, I kept these for the big weekend and started brainstorming what we can do with them.
Of course, flowers came into mind but I wanted to these be cool, be different, be unique. So as I kept searching online more and more, I finally found it. Coffee Filter Roses. And since my students LOVED when we did this tie-dye coffee filter art project a while back, I knew this one would be something they’d love to make too.
This is a two day process (you need to wait a day for the rose petals to dry) so make sure you keep that in mind. But these are so beautiful and look so real, our mothers were so impressed by them!
This is the video that shows the step by step process I used to make the rose. The only thing I’ll say is that I improvised and used a hot glue gun instead of normal glue and cleaners instead of floral wire since that’s what we had. And to make the vase look full, I used this green tulle we had and stuffed it in the vase.
Also, if you want these roses to have the tie-dye look like ours, it’s very simple! Ours accidentally came out tie-dye but it’s super cute! All we did was dry the rose petals on a tray altogether, stacked on top of each other. I honestly didn’t have a bigger tray or play or try them so out of simplicity I dried them all together and the colors just mixed together. But you’re going to have to be careful when you peel the rose petals off the tray and from each other because they get hard.
As I was gluing the rose petals together, the kids decorated the vases with diamond stickers I had gotten each of them. It was cool to see how each of their vases looked different.
What do you think of these? Are they the coolest Mother’s Day crafts for kids or what?!
