A plant stick or pick which ever one you say, is something any mom would enjoy. This is a gift that can be for anyone though.
I have done other pine cone crafts before. I must love them! Remember my Pine Cone frame? Another good idea for Mother's Day!
I also did an Anthro Knock off with them.
I have a bunch in my yard I collect to use for crafts. I lovebeing able to come up with different ideas for them.
Now if you don't have access to any you can purchase some. I started with a cardboard circle and took apart the pine cone to have separate pieces.
I used hot glue to attach two rows around the cardboard. (face up)
Then two more rows with piece face down. This went real fast.
They make pretty flowers too!
Then I copied the pink bird graphic from The GraphicsFairy
I used card stock and cut out the image and mod podged it together. The mod podge forms a protective coating on the card stock. I then glued it to a craft stick.
For a nice presentation, I painted a pot from Old Time Pottery and transferred another bird image to the front.
Then when you give it as a gift, all they have to do is lift up the nest and insert it in a plant. Of course you can buy a plant and do the same, it is up to you!! If a child is doing this you can use regular glue.
I love how it can take an ordinary plant and make it look
