How To Make A Mothers Day Card With Celery (Really!)

Check out how to make a Mothers Day card with celery! Mother’s Day will be here before you know it and I still need to make cards.  I keep meaning to run to the craft store for a few more rubber stamps – because I don’t have one that inspires me to make a Mother’s Day card. As I was searching through my rubber stamp tub, I realized that I have quite a few rubber stamps that I’ve purchased and only used once.  There are even some that I’ve purchased and never used at all. I was inspired by the craft book, Stamp It! by Jenny Doh to be more creative in using handmade stamps instead of buying new ones.

How To Make A Mothers Day Card With Celery (Really!)

Materials

Instructions

  • Put a small circle of paint for each color on the paper plate or paint palette
  • Peel off one outer stalk of celery
  • Leave the other stalks together
  • With a very sharp knife, cut off the leaves at the end of the stalk
  • Cut the one single stalk of celery into two pieces.
  • Dip the end of the bunch of celery into the pink paint to make one large flower.
  • Using one half of the single stalk, dip it into the green and use it to make two sets of leaves as shown.
  • Using the other half of the single stalk, dip it into the yellow and use it to make a center to the flower.
  • Let the card dry and you are all set.  You can write Happy Mother’s Day on the inside if you like or just write Mom a note.

    Love this idea! When I was in elementary school we painted with celery, potatoes and sponges and that still sticks with me. I have often thought about giving it a try again but my artistic skills have not gotten much better since that day. Thanks for the reminder.
  6. Fun! My kids would have a great time making this card. They love quirky crafts.
