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!

Basket of Flowers

You will need:
  • Paper plate
  • Construction paper
  • Glue stick or craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Clothespins, optional
  1. Cut paper plate in half.
  2. Place a piece of green (or other color) construction paper over a plate half and trace. Cut out.
  3. Glue piece of construction paper onto plate, just around the edges and bottom. Leave the top open so it forms pocket. I used the clothespins to hold the paper in place while it dried.
  4. Cut out a handle from the other half of the paper plate. 
  5. Trace handle shape on construction paper, cut out, and glue to paper plate handle.
  6. Glue handle to basket.
  7. Cut out flower shapes and glue around the inside and outside of the basket.
