DIY Mother's Day Gift Idea

Every Mom loves gifts from the heart and if her kids have made it, then it just makes it all the more special. That is why these DIY Hand Print Mother’s Day Planters are sure to be a hit.

For the supplies, you will need terracotta pots, beautiful flowers to fit inside, and some craft paint.



  1. First, you will want to add some paint to your flower pot. I wanted the kids’ hand prints to really show up so I decided on white for the main part with accent colors around the top rim and on the base.

2. Let fully dry.

3. Paint the hand of one of your littles.

4. Press their little hand print onto the pot.

5. Plant your pretty flowers!
