Flowers for Mother's Day

 Flower Supply List: 3 toilet paper rolls, paint, scissors, hole punch, floral wire, button
 Paint the outside of your toilet paper rolls and allow them to dry.
 Cut the toilet paper roll into strips.
 Fold the strips in half and punch a hole at the bottom.
 Bend your floral wire in half and thread it through your button.
 Stack the strips of toilet paper roll on the floral wire.
 Once you have 7 or 8 strips on the floral wire push them up to the button and thread a second button on the bottom of the flower.
Put a few of these flowers in a small vase and they make a great gift for Mother's Day.

I would have never guessed that these were made from toilet paper rolls. They are so cute.
