Hey there crafty friends! Yay, it’s the weekend! That wonderful time when we can finally kick back, relax, and dive into another DIY project! Isn’t it just the best feeling? Have you ever tried string art? I did this cute string art Valentine’s day craft a few years ago and it was so fun. Of course I think any craft idea is fun! With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be a great idea to try a string art flower card that the kids can make for mom.


There’s something so special about receiving a homemade card, especially when it’s lovingly crafted by the hands of your own child. It’s not just a piece of paper adorned with colors and shapes; it’s a tangible expression of their affection, creativity, and thoughtfulness. I’ve kept many of the homemade Mother’s Day cards that my kids made. It always brings a smile to my face when I pull the box out and look through them! I know life is so busy for us and it’s so much more convenient to go out and buy a card, but I would much rather find some time to gather around the table with piles of paper, glue, yarn, and pom poms and create memories that will last a lifetime. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood are times spent making crafts at our kitchen table.

So, lets get our supplies together and dive into this weeks tutorial

What You’ll Need

What to Do

Step 1

Create your design. You can have your child sketch their own flower design, or print out a template to trace. I found this cute template which I printed on cardstock and cut out. You could also Google “flower template printable” to find something you like. Once you have your template, fold a piece of cardstock into a card and trace it onto your paper.

Step 2

Start poking holes all around your flower outline roughly 1/4- 1/2 inch apart. This will make it much easier to thread the yarn or embroidery thread through in the next step. I ended up using a large safety pin since my needle had a dull end. After the holes are poked, you can erase the pencil if you like. I didn’t bother.

TIP- If your holes are closer together, your design will be much more filled in with yarn. If you space the holes further apart , you will have a more loose and airy design.

Step3

Once the design is complete, it’s time to bring it to life with colorful yarn or embroidery floss! Cut a length of floss or yarn (around 12-24 inches long) and thread it through a child-safe needle and tie a knot at the end. Begin by poking the needle through the back of the card at the starting point of one of the petals. Pick a point on the opposite side of the design and poke the needle through to the back of the card.

Step 4

This step is crucial for a really nice design. Each time your needle is on the backside of the design, move over 1-4 holes and poke through to the front, then do all your crisscrossing on the front of the design. I didn’t do this the first time I tried these and I had a crisscross mess on the backside of the card.

Step 5

Change yarn colors and repeat crisscrossing with the new color. I joined the new color with the finished color with a knot at the back of the card.

Step 6

To add a little extra flair to your flower, consider embellishing the center with buttons, beads, or pom poms. You can glue these onto the card once your string art is complete, creating a charming finishing touch. Then you’re children are ready to write a personal message inside.
