Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Flower Magnets

These are a pretty quick and easy craft (they would make great gifts for grandmas on Mother's Day).

You will need:
  • Foam craft sheets. (To make it really easy, they also come in a sticker back.)
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Pom Poms, Puff Balls, Glitter, Jewels, etc.
  • Craft Glue, Foam Glue or Hot Glue/Glue Gun
  • Magnets
  1. Cut out flower shapes out of the foam sheets
  2. Glue shapes together. (I used a hot glue gun.)
  3. Glue on pom poms, glitter, jewels, or other decorations.
  4. Cut pipe cleaner to desired length. This will be the stem.
  5. Cut small pieces and fold in half to create leaf shapes. Glue to stem.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Glue stem to back of flowers.
  8. Let dry.
  9. Cut magnets to fit back of flower. I used a self adhesive magnet. Attach. (Let dry if needed.)
