This mothers day crafts section consists of all those ideas, which
could not be fit into any other categories. Anyway, they're at least as nice as the other mothers day crafts, the flowers for example!
These arts and crafts ideas can be great mothers day activities as well.
So take a
look at the ideas below!
What you'll need:
- Salt dough:
Special heart-shaped pastry cutter
Thin, wooden/plastic/metal stick
Acrylic paints (red and white)
- 1 cup of salt
- 1 cup of water
- 2 cups of flour
Before you actually start creating this mothers day crafts idea,
you'll need to make the salt dough. It's very simple.
How to Make the Salt Dough
Mix 1 cup of salt with 2 cups of flour, and then add 1 cup of water. If the salt dough is too sticky, add more flour,
and if it's to dry, add some more water. Next, get your rolling-pin and
pastry-board, and roll out the salt dough.
Now, you're ready to start.
|Step 1. Get your
heart-shaped pastry cutter and cut out the heart shape from the salt
||Step 2. Now, you'll
need you thin stick to make the squared pattern. 'Scrape' the lines
first as shown.
|Step 3. Now, place
the stick all the way over each lines to make nice and even.
||Step 4. Using the
same stick, pierce a hole in the middle of the top square as shown.
Place your heart on a heater until it has dried out completely (it
takes usually 1-2 days).
Paint the salt dough heart using the acrylic paints. The red and white
are only tips: you don't have to use the same colours.
Finally, string the red thread through the middle hole and make a knot
on top of it, so that you can hang up the finished heart somewhere.

- Your hand
- Special, heart-shaped pastry cutter (smaller
than the one used in the Single Heart project, since it won't fit in
your hand then.)
- Metal/wooden/plastic stick

made the rolled out salt dough, place your hand on it and using the
stick, cut out the shape of your hand. Make the contour lines between
||Step 2. Before
you continue, make the hand nice and even, simply using your fingers.
Next, get your pastry cutter, and cut a heart in the middle of the hand
||Step 3. When
your hand is nice and even, and there is no rough spot at all, then you
can decorate hand with the seeds. Just push the seeds around the heart
in the middle.
|Step 4. Here
is your almost finished hand. Place it on a heater for about 1-2 days,
until it becomes completely dry.
||Step 5. The
final step is the painting. Get your acrylic paint and brush and paint
the hand. Finally, allow it to dry.

|Step 4. Place
the small heart on the middle of the other. Also, pierce a hole on the
top of the big heart using the stick.
