Not going to lie, I am more than a little bit in love with this super sweet doily vase flower craft, it’s super cute right? (Although is it a vase or a bouquet? Either works for me!) It includes doilys which are my new favourite super cheap material and it’s perfect for spring or Mothers Day. And it’s pretty – did I mention that? Ok, let’s get on with how to make this easy flower craft.

To make these button flowers you will need:
How to Make Your Button Flowers:
These button flowers are really easy both to make as as a quick craft to set up for your children.
Start by cutting a flower shape out of card, card is much better than paper for this craft because it’s able to hold the weight of the glue and buttons a bit better, you don’t want your flower falling apart! Don’t fancy drawing the flower shape yourself? No problem, just grab our free flower template to use with this craft.
If you’d like to add a centre to your flower do so now so using a different coloured card. It’s best to add this before you add the buttons so that you don’t run out of room.
Spread some glue onto the petals of the flower and you can now add your buttons, PVA glue (school glue) works best for this as the heavy weight of the buttons means you’ll need something stronger than a glue stick.

Last week my son was asking me about what flowers I love. “Tulips, Daffodils..” I told him “but I really like hydrangeas too.” Being five and me having somehow missed this vital bit of parenting he didn’t have a clue what a hydrangea was so I tried to explain them to him, the balls of tiny flowers all packed together in gorgeous pastel colours and then I thought, hey, rather than just explaining and showing a picture, why not try and make some too with this fun hydrangea craft for kids? We love sharing crafts for toddlers as well as older kids so you’ll see how easy this was to create with my two year old too!
I love sharing sensory play ideas for kids and making puffy paint has been on my to do list for a while and when we finally got to try it out the other day I thought I’d try and give it a little twist: making scented puffy paint! We made these sweet puffy paint flowers and they smell like flowers too, how cool is that! Even better is that pretty much everything you’ll need to make these is probably in your cupboards already.
