I am such a sucker for flowers. I love them when paired with bright and graphic fabrics. Or whenever they’re paired with sugar. Instead of flowers and chocolates, give me flowers and gummy bears. Then we’ll be friends for life. With Mother’s Day around the corner, I have an excuse to fill my life with an abundance of flowers. And that means, we’re gonna start with a few simple DIYs like these DIY floral glass vial place cards. They double as gifts so you’ll be everyone’s favorite when the day is over.
To make your own you’ll need:
- glass vials
- assorted flowers and branches (ranunculas for the win!)
- kraft paper
Trim your flower and branch stems and place them in the vial at various heights. Write your guest’s name on a piece of kraft paper and trim around the name. Cut a piece of fabric that is just bigger than the paper. Poke a hole through both the paper and fabric and thread the twist-tie through.
Tie the name to the glass vial and you’re set! These particular namet ags were labels created by Ticket Kitchen for their hot chocolate. I’m all about saving craft supplies so I revamped these beauts into name tags!
Place these gems on your Mother’s Day brunch table (because you gotta have a Mother’s Day brunch, right?). Go crazy with the flowers and place a few petals beneath clear plates.
dun dun dun dun dun dun. After the meal is over, let your pals take these home as favors. Fill ’em up with water and the blooms will last longer!
