Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so Kinsley and I decided to make a flower wreath as a gift to her mom! Spoiler alert: Kinsley couldn’t wait until Mother’s Day to give away her present. Inspired by all the toilet paper wreaths seen on Pinterest, we thought making one ourselves would be a fun way to celebrate the holiday. We found this and this blog particularly helpful. To make the project extra special, we included mom’s favorite colors and added a bow. Hope you enjoy!

Mother’s Day Flower Wreath


  • Toilet paper rolls (6 to 12 depending on the size you want)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Hot glue (or super glue)
  • Paint brushes
  • Water
  • Scrap paper for a sign


Step 1: Paint your toilet paper rolls a solid color with your acrylic paint. Make sure to paint both the inside and outside of the roll.
Step 2: Let your paint dry. Once dry, cut your “petals” by slicing your toilet paper rolls horizontally, into ½ – 1 inch pieces.
Step 3: Form your flowers by taking two petals, dabbing a drop of hot glue at one end of a petal, and pressing the two together. Continue to add petals until a flower forms, usually taking about 5-8 petals.
Step 4: Once flowers are complete. Lay out in a circle. Then, take your hot glue, attaching your flowers together to form the wreath. Then, you’re done!

Bonus step: Make a sign using scraps you have lying around. I wrote Happy Mother’s Day and then layered the back with a colorful piece of paper. Then, I added a bow with some ribbon I found lying around. After your sign is complete, attach to your wreath via glue.
