Just in time for Mother’s Day! These water bottle flowers are so darn cute! I love simple crafts, and I especially love ones that don’t involve going to the store for supplies. I bet you have most or all of the supplies for this one, right at home. Come on in, and I’ll show you how to make these simple water bottle flowers:

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Water bottles
  • Scissors
  • Fabric Paint – it’s much thicker than washable paint, so it works better here…but, be careful with clothes. 🙂 * Check out this DIY smock for protecting clothes. 
  • paint brushes
  • Yellow pom-poms – about 1/2 inch wide
  • Warm glue gun with glue sticks or fabri-tac glue
  • green straws
  • green construction paper

 

Now, on to the fun:

  • Cut the ends off of the water bottles and dry completely
  • Paint the inside of the bottle ends and let dry
  • Cut some little leaf shapes out of the green paper
  • Trim your straws to the desired length and glue to the back of the bottle end – I put a dot of glue at the bump (technical term) 🙂
  • Turn the bottle end around and use glue to add the yellow pom-pom to the indention (middle) of the bottle bottom and leaves to the straws
