How To | Pipe Cleaner Flowers

My daughter created this beautiful bouquet all by herself. She used pipe cleaners, construction paper and a toilet paper tube to create these flowers that she gave to her baby sister. When I asked how she did it, she replied, “It was easy peasy mom!” I think this could also be a perfect Mother’s Day gift to give to grandma or an aunt.
