My grandson Manny was so impressed with a post I did showing how to use a wood-burning pen to personalize a birch container that he asked me to help him make one as a DIY Mother’s Day gift idea for his mom. Of course I said yes!
I chose a tall cylindrical-shaped vase for him to work with because it is the perfect shape to fill with beautiful spring tulips.
We started by making a template for the heart.
Manny used the template to create the basic guide.
Then we removed the template and started to fill in and fill out the lines to create definition. It’s better to go over the design lightly multiple times.
Tip: Keep going over the same area with the pen until you are happy with how it looks.
Once Manny was satisfied with the wood-burning job he did, it was time to make the arrangement…with a big assist from little sister Olivia!
Tulips are the perfect flower for children to work with because they’re so easy to arrange. Simply fill the vase with clean, fresh water, give the stems a cut, and place them in the vase one at a time!
A job well done…and a DIY Mother’s Day gift idea that Mom will truly love!
