Handmade Flower Carrier

Something my kids absolutely LOVE to do is pick flowers,” notes Ashley at Cherished Bliss.  “There is a state park close to us that is just gorgeous and the walking trails are covered in flowers. I made this little Burlap Flower Carrier for them to take on our walks and gather up as many flowers as their heart’s desire!”  This is a simple project that can be made with things you probably already have on hand–starting with a couple of sturdy twigs!

To make this flower carrier, Ashley cut a rectangle of burlap.  She threaded some twine through the burlap so that she could tie the twigs at either end of the burlap.  The twigs serve as handles for the carrier.  “You can whip these little guys up right out in your backyard while the kids are playing,”  Ashley says.

    Not to rain on your parade, but in most state and national parks, it is illegal to pick the flowers. Some parks even have webcams to catch the offenders. Just saying you need to check the laws for the different parks you enter so that you can enjoy this time together without teaching your children to violate the laws. WE love flowers also!

  2. That is adorable!
    However, my first thought was “What state does she live in?!” We can’t pick anything anywere in NY unless it’s my own yard. Lucky for me, my girls think dandelions are gorgeous!
