You can make very nice cheap Mothers Day flowers.
Buy a terra cotta pot and paint or decoupage it yourself. Or get an unusual container to plant a flower in, such as a large mug or teacup, or a pretty jar.
Get a packet of mixed flower seeds and plant a few in the pot and give your Mother the rest to plant outside. Or buy a small flower to add to the pot.
Or make paper flowers and put in a beautifully decorated tin can or vase. Mom can keep these for a long time and they are cheap Mothers Day flowers, but ones she will appreciate receiving.
