Looking for a creative idea of a Mother’s Day? Here is a great idea for a frugal gift you can make with the kids! Thank you Just trying To Save Money for this great post!
-Cans (we just used soup cans and vegetable cans- cleaned and air dried are best)
- One Nail
- Plant of Choice (we chose to use lavender and basil)
- Decorative Paper
- Crayons (we tried markers but they smeared when we glued the paper, crayons are best)
- Paint Brush
- Bottle of Glue
Then take your decorative paper and measure out the actual width and length of the paper you will need to cover your can. Decorate your paper the way you want. My girls wrote messages to grandma, but you can draw pictures or whatever you want. Then you will need to pour your glue into a bowl, then take your paint brush and dip it into the glue. Then paint on the glue on the outside of the can. Stick the decorative paper to the can and then paint more glue over the paper. This will help get glue into the edges where the paper and can meet. Gluing the outside will help to keep the paper from getting wet when you water your plants.
