I whipped up some of these fun Mother’s Day popsicle flower pots for some of the special “mothers” in our lives.
The supply list is rather simple, and it can take all of 10 minutes to complete, from start-to-finish.
4 wide popsicle sticks
2 bottles of craft paint
a paint brush & paint plate
4 magnets (can be found in the craft section of Walmart)
a 5 X7 photo or print out, cut to size
3 green pipe cleaners
scrapbooking paper for flowers
a glue stick
clear packing tape or scotch tape
You will start by painting the front and back of each of the popsicle sticks.
While you are waiting on these to dry, cut out three 3 inch flowers, and 3 yellow circles and assemble together with your glue stick.
Then once the popsicle sticks are dry, hot glue the ends together forming a box.
After you have your box in place, hot glue one of each of the four magnets to the corners of the frame.
(I did all of this before adding my picture).
Next, add your picture. I used a 5 x 7 printout of a color copy of my photo on copy paper and actually had to cut it down to size. The inside of this box is bigger than a 4 x 6, but smaller then a 5 x 7. So I took just a portion of the background out from the 2/3’s line (in width) of the picture to make it fit and then secured it with clear packer’s tape to the sides of the popsicle frame.
Once you have your photo in place then hot glue the cardstock flowers to the pipe cleaner stems and then add them to the back of the photo.
After that step is complete, you are done! Here you have these adorable popsicle fridge magnet flower pots that mom, grandma, neighbor, friend can look at year round.
Popsicle magnet flower pots also make a great homemade gift idea for friends, family, neighbors, teachers, and more! Whip up a few in about 10 minutes for a thoughtful handmade present!
