Mother's Day marshmallows look beautiful with flowers


Six crocheted flower marshmallow mug hats on marshmallow mugs.

Mother's day is just around the corner and spring has arrived! For those reasons, I thought a flower would be perfect for a May marshmallow mug hat. I don't know if this resembles an actual flower, I just like the way it looks. The fun comes in with all the customization options - Colors, sparkle, size – they can all be easily changed and they all look great!
