Step 1:

Step 1

Get your plastic plant pot, cut your foam to size and fix the plant pot to your piece of wood or base, you could just use card if you wish or a piece of planed timber up to you.

I fixed this down with a hot glue gun, you would get the same result with a screw through the pot into the timber, or superglue ar a good PVA if you put enough on and let it dry  

Step 2:

The back board sign
I then created my poster for the back board on the PC i used a few shapes in word to creat the look of a basket and wordart to create the word Mum and added in some clipart flowers, i then laminated the paper and stuck some card on the back to give it some strength and glued it to the base of the timber and the back of the plant pot and secured it with a piece of lolly stick.

other options
you could equally get a piece of card and decorate it really nice yourself with crayons, felt tips or paint, i am sure some of you are much more creative than i have been with mine making it much more personal and you could use tape to fix it to the plant pot and down the back of the board to the side of the wood or base you have selected

instead of making the flowers on straws, you could use pens which might make them more useful as a gift (not that theyre useless in that state)
