Mother's Day Flower Picture Frame Craft

This is a simple and cute picture frame you can make from a paper plate that's also great for a Mother's Day gift.


  • 1 paper plate
  • many small pink and yellow construction paper oval shapes
  • 1 long green pipe cleaner or wiki stick
  • two small green leaf cut outs
  • tape
  • glue
  • scissors.


  1. Beforehand, cut out the center of the paper plate, the pink and yellow ovals, and the green leaf shapes.
  2. Students glue the ovals all around the back side of the paper plate for the petals.
  3. Tape the green pipe cleaner to the back of the plate for the stem and fold down the tip. (the tip of a pipe cleaner can be a little sharp)
  4. Tape the green leaves to the stem.
  5. Tape the child's favorite photo to the back of the plate.
How to cut out the center of the paper plate:

One way is to take a box cutter and cut all the way around the inside circle of a paper plate. Another easy way, is to bend the paper plate in half without folding it. Then with scissors, make a cut from the center until the rim. Use that starter cut to cut out the center in two half circle pieces. Easy.
