MOther’s Day is around the corner! It is day SEVEN of A Kid’s Creative Mother’s Day and I am super excited to share these kid made garden flags for mom. Garden flags (also known as mini flags) are great for patios, gardens and indoor decor. I would like to thank Fairfield World for sponsoring this post but remind you that the ideas and opinions are my own.
Oly-Fun is great to work with because it cuts really really really easily with scissors, almost like paper. The edged do not fray! It is sort of like magic fabric. To make these flags, we used a full sheet from the Grab-And-Go pack.
Start out by folding the top of your piece over and stitching (or gluing it) to create a slot to go over a rod. If you are doing this with a large group of children, this is a step that could be done ahead of time.
To create your flag decorations, you have several options. Personally, We love to cut things out on my die-cut machine. We cut these flowers out of the orange and green sheets with a die that I design for Sizzix/Ellison.
We used kid glue to attach them to the flag. Ta Da!
Beach and ocean decor is trending like crazy these days! Check out the crab.
We added a strip of ribbon to the bottom of this one.
Oly-Fun is so multipurpose that you can paint on it too. We added white polka dots to the black with acrylic paint and a round sponge brush.
Once the paint was dry, we added a big purple letter W to the flag by sewing it to the black on the sewing machine.
There are so so many ways to personalize and create these flags. Because the material is awesome for kids, they can access their imagination and get really creative.
Cheers to Creating Gifts for Moms,
