How to create a Foam Flower Bouquet for mum this Mother’s Day

How to create a Foam Flower Bouquet for mum this Mother’s Day

Creating a thoughtful and personalised gift for your mum using foam can be a unique and creative idea. Here's a simple DIY project you can try:


Foam Flower Bouquet:


  1. Foam sheets
  2. Wooden dowels or craft sticks
  3. Fabric dye
  4. Craft glue
  5. Scissors
  6. Vase or decorative container
  7. Ribbon (optional)
  8. Markers or paint (optional)



  1. Choose Foam Sheets: Select different foam sheets and dye to your preferred colours to represent various flowers. You can find foam sheets at Clark Rubber.
  2. Cut Flower Shapes: Use scissors to cut out flower shapes from the foam sheets. You can go for classic flower shapes like roses, daisies, or tulips. If you're not confident in freehand cutting, you can find flower templates online and trace them onto the foam.
  3. Create Stems: Cut wooden dowels or craft sticks to the desired length for the flower stems. Attach the foam flowers to the tops of the stems using craft glue.
  4. Add Details: Use markers or paint to add details to the foam flowers. You can create patterns, add shading, or even write sweet messages on the petals.
  5. Arrange in a Vase: Place the foam flowers with stems into a vase or decorative container. You may want to arrange them in a way that mimics a real flower bouquet.
  6. Optional Ribbon: Tie a ribbon around the vase or create bows to add a decorative touch.
  7. Personalised: Consider adding a small card or tag with a personalised message for your mum. This could be a heartfelt note, a poem, or simply expressing your love and appreciation.
  8. Presentation: Present the foam flower bouquet to your mum on Mother's Day. You can do this alongside breakfast in bed, a special meal, or any other planned activities.

This DIY foam flower bouquet not only serves as a beautiful and lasting gift but also allows you to express your creativity and thoughtfulness. Feel free to customise the flowers and colours based on your mum's preferences.
