    11. When glue has dried, paint with acrylic paint. We used two coats of white ceramcoat acrylic paint.

    12. When this has dried, spray with Acrylic Spray 1-2 coats to get a nice sheen.
    13. Decorate with your choice of flowers, stickers, foam cut outs, felt, etc.

    14. Glue a piece of ribbon on the back so this can be hung or you can attach two more jumbo sticks in the back to form a "house" shape.


  • Use craft glue for a faster, stronger bond.
  • You can also glue two craft sticks together in an upside down "V" to the back to create a way to hang this holder.

    Mother's Day is relatively modern, and has been celebrated from about the start of the 20th century. In countries other than the United States, mother's day is also celebrated however, it may be on a different day because of the different origins. In the UK it is called Mothering Sunday and some countries refer to is as International Women's Day. If you have a special note on Mother's Day, please feel free to share it with us! We love to learn new things.
