Light up Flower

Looking for a fun alternative to fresh-cut flowers? A light-up flower is a fun way to show someone how much they light up your life! You can make one light up flower, or a bunch of light up flowers to make a bright bouquet!

DIY Light up Flower

I’m sharing this light up flower as part of Craft Lighting week. All week long Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, Adrianne from Happy Hour Projects, and I are sharing fast and fun crafts perfect for Mother’s day. And we’ve invited our crafty friends to join in. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to check out all their project ideas!

This flower makes a great Mother’s Day gift. A tech-loving mom, or the mom of a tech-loving child, would love a light up flower on her breakfast tray on Mother’s Day morning. Or a bouquet of flowers lighting up the dining table for a special dinner. These flowers are easy enough to make that most children can help, and most children over the age of 10 should be able to make them on their own.

To make your light up flower you’ll need:

Flower kit from Technochic (currently available on Kickstarter)
Hot Glue
Floral Wire

Follow the instructions in the kit to make the flower.

Bend about 1/2″ of the floral wire, and tuck into the bottom of the flower, through one of the holes. Hot glue in place as needed.

Make more if you like, and put in a vase to present them to your special someone!
