Mother's Day Pipe Cleaner Flower Craft

Here is a simple idea to make Mother's Day flowers from pipe cleaners.

  •  many pipe cleaners of various colors( you need 6 colored and 1 green for each flower)
  • plastic flower pot
  • ribbon
  • colored rice(or other filler)


  1. Take 6 pipe cleaners in the color of your choice. Twist them in the middle and wrap 1 green around the center to make the stem.
  2. Twist the 6 pipe cleaners 1 more time around the center.
  3. Spread out the 12 strands and curl each one up like a baby fern.
  4. Repeat and make more flowers of different colors.
  5. Put a plastic bag in the bottom of the plastic flower pot to cover up the hole.
  6. Fill with colored rice or other filler. Pom poms would be nice.
  7. Tie a ribbon around the top of the pot.
  8. Insert your flowers into the pot.
  9. To make a bouquet, twist the stems of several flowers together. Fold the stems to make them shorter and fatter.
