With so many ways to celebrate Mom (breakfast in bed, bike rides, sending her flowers), picking the *perfect* way to do it can be hard. So we’re encouraging you to get creative — literally. This floral lightbulb DIY is a crafty way to upgrade her standard bouquet. Plus, it serves as a gorgeous seasonal statement to backdrop any brunch or party plans you have scheduled for Sunday. Take a look below to see how you can create these blooming beauties in time for May 13.

You’ll need:

  • mock light bulbs
  • dried flower petals
  • Mod Podge
  • small paint brush
  • thin wooden skewer


  1. Paint the inside of your bulbs with Mod Podge.
  2. Add dried flower petals or buds.
  3. Allow time to dry before adding the caps.
  4. Fasten the bulbs together on a chandelier, or string them party-style on a garland, for some fabulous flair that’ll make her smile.
