Mothers Day Kids Craft

I made this little polka dot dragon fly for my potted Easter Lilies. They needed a little something!


You know how they all come with that generic paper on the bottom? {shown above} Well, why not remove it and add something more thoughtful and cute? Especially if you’re giving the lilies as a gift! Plus, this way the kiddos can get in on the fun and the mom/grandma in their life will love having a little something made by them.

Lilies are so pretty.

How to Make a Simple Popsicle Stick Dragonfly

supplies: clothespin, scissors, twine, popsicle stick, hot glue, paper, decoupage medium.

garden craft

1. Use the clothespin to hold about 10″ of twine in place on the pot.

2. Wrap the twine around the pot until you have the desired thickness.

twine craft

3. Tie off the twine with a square knot.

4. Then tie a bow knot. Then tie another bow knot on top of the first bow knot to make 4 twine “wings”. Cut off the excess twine.

decoupage craft

5. I decoupaged some paper to the top of my popsicle stick and glued on googly eyes. But kids could paint, sticker, or glue on pom poms or other decorations on their popsicle sticks.

6. Then hot glue the stick to the center of the twine wings and you have a cute little dragonfly to go with your potted flower gift!

    I love your jute on the pot! I would buy the liilies and and jute and do the same as you! Then I would give them to Mom for Mother’s Day – but I would buy lilies that can be planted here outside in the northeast!

    We are making hand print clay pots and putting bulbs in them (because we have to mail a few) for all the Grandma’s and great grandma’s for Mother’s day!

    This is a very versatile project. Almost all elements can be changed or adjusted to whatever your theme or special day is. I LOVE it!! Thanks for the great inspiration. : )

    Great pot for your lilies!!! If I won, I’d make some flowers for my mum for Mother’s Day….this way she can keep them forever and they won’t die. :)

    Hi, I love your idea of taking off the paper of the pot and adding the dragonfly. I would make a few for my lilys and other plants on the patio plus maybe some butterflies. It certainly would pretty up the deck. Next time the grand-kids come over – my next project for them is ready to be made!! thanks for the idea!

    I would help the kids wrap the entire pot with jute like I do the Monogram Wreath

    and have them give it to my Mom :-)

    I would do a craft stick or kabob skewer with a big bold daisy with our son’s school photo for the middle…the flowers would be from him to his grammy!

    I (we) and my grand daughter would paint a terra cotta pot white & let grand daughter paint Easter Lilies on the pot like the Lilies we grow and transplant one from out little flower bed for her Mommy.

    I love the new idea, the dragonfly is fun. We have done very similar with just super simple ribbon.

    I would love to hang some lilies from a glass vase from the wall for a unique decoration.

    I saw a craft idea the other day – where they covered the pot with modpodge. It was really pretty. Thanks for this idea.

    I would use rhinestones and pearls to cover the planter. I would spell MOM out in the rhinestones while covering the rest of the planter with various sizes of pearls (flat back) to do a mosaic pattern! I think that would really make it sparkle! I would then finish it off with a pretty ribbon tied in a bow to add the final touch! Thanks for the chance to win! Lillies are such a pretty flower!

    That is so cute- I love projects using the popsicle sticks!

    I would probably start with a pot makeover for it.

    I love the little dragonfly! So cute & easy to make. If I won I would love to do something with Amaryillis lilies. Possibly make some from paper and ribbon to have in my house to reminded me every day of my loved ones. My grandmother and mother raised these and they are really beautiful and remind me of them.

    I think that I would follow your lead and make some kind of beautiful or cute flower pot to personalize the lillies! Great idea! Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. 28

    I think I am going to make a indoor “flower garden”. Will make some wooden box, plan the lily there and add some other plants that will coordinate the lily .. make a perfect Mother’s Day gift for somebody.

    This dragonfly is just darling, I need to make some for my oldest — she loves them. I love the look of lilies, but I have never grown them, so I guess I would just like to try and grow some in the yard and see how they do. Thanks for the great ideas and info!!

    My daughter and I have been painting pots for mother’s day. We could put the lillies in one of them!
