EEK! Did Mother’s Day creep up on you this year? It’s this weekend, you know. If you’re in a bind, I’ve put together a collection of do it yourself Mother’s Day gifts that you and/or your kiddos can make for their Grandma, Auntie, neighbor or teacher.
One of the VERY first posts I wrote on this blog was about our Mother’s Day sunflowers. We’re doing it again this year, but we’re planting the seeds directly into the buckets since we got a late start. So essentially, my kids are giving buckets of dirt as Mother’s Day gifts. But it’s the thought that counts, right?
For something a little prettier, I am WILD about these Plantable Seeded Paper Flowers from HowDoesShe.com. The tutorial is fantastic and the finished flowers are beautiful! How about a whole bouquet for a Gardening Grandma?
Do you remember when moms would always wear corsages to church on Mother’s Day? I adore this paper corsage from Makes and Takes. They last forever! No preserving required.
If you’re feeling especially crafty, what mom wouldn’t love this Dahlia Felt Brooch from Holidash. You all know how much I love felt brooches. This one is gorgeous!
If you have some scrap wood laying around (and what DIY gal doesn’t?), you could whip together this fun and sentimental Accordion Photo Gallery from The How-To Gal.
And if you’re going to grab a Sam’s Club or grocery store bouquet of flowers for your mom, Richella from Imparting Grace showed us how to arrange the flowers to make them even more beautiful.
How about some DIY bath salts? This tutorial from Smashed Peas and Carrots shows you how to make the salts (which I LOVE as a foot-scrub) AND how to package them beautifully. The kids can help too!
What are you doing for Mother’s Day? We’ll be hosting both sides of our family here on Sunday. It’s also my hubby’s birthday, so we’ll be celebrating it all together.
