Here’s a "sweet" alternative to giving fresh flowers. Great for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, party favors, etc.

They are super easy to make and will for sure sweeten up someone's day. 

Here's what you'll need:

 

Instructions:

Cut a circle out of felt (should be a smaller diameter than your flower petals) and glue it to the stick (if your stick has a pointy end - glue this side onto the circle).
