Mother’s Day Dandelion Fork Flower Tutorial

by jennifer

Dandelions rank among my favorite flowers. I used to pick them for my mom when I was a kid and now I get to watch my daughters pick them for me. Because most people consider them weeds, no one ever gets on your case for picking them and I love that, too.

I wrote a Mother’s Day column about dandelions that will be published in Sunday’s Grand Rapids Press, but wanted to share the instructions and the video to weave up a “dandy” pin or bouquet today so you have time to whip up some flowers for your mom or make plans to craft with your kids this weekend. I learned how to make fork flowers from my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Behling, and have been making them every since. I hope you get hooked on weaving with kitchen forks, too.

There’s a lot on my to-do list between now and Mother’s Day. I’m headed to the YMCA to take down the apron show in a bit and then headed back home to continue embroidering the apron I will race in during the 33rd annual Fifth Third River Bank Run 25K on Saturday. I’m running to raise awareness and money for my charity sponsor, Safe Haven Ministries, a local non-profit that aids women and children who have suffered from domestic violence. (Check out my last post for info about buying and apron to support the cause. We’ve raised more than $1,600 so far!)

It’s been an exhausting couple of months leading up to this race, so I’m really looking forward to taking a post-race nap. :  ) And before I get all caught up in the pre-race jitters and post race exhaustion, I want to wish all the crafty moms out there a  Happy Mother’s Day a little bit early with a little fork flower tutorial. You can download the PDF or read it below. A quick video tutorial follows. I’ll be demonstrating how to make the flowers live on WZZM’s “Take Five” local morning show here in Grand Rapids tomorrow, too. Please let me know if you have any questions. A special thanks to my husband, Jeff, for helping me put all this together.
