Mother’s Day is right around the corner. This special day gives us a unique opportunity to show love and appreciation for these incredible women. To connect with the mothers around you, whether it’s your mother, daughter, daughter-in-law, niece or sister, here are craft ideas that are cost effective, easy and meaningful, and sure to delight any mother.
•Paint a vase. Buy a mason jar (or use an old vase from home) and paint it using interior wall paint to paint the outside of the jar. You can even use one color as the base and another color to write an inspirational quote specifically for her. Tie a bow around the top and deliver it to her with hand picked flowers from the garden.
•Make a body scrub. Surprisingly, body scrubs are very quick and easy to make, and are a perfect way to help promote relaxation! Use ¾ cups of granulated white sugar, 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (lemon or lavender are fan favorites) and mix it with ¼ cups of melted coconut oil. Put it in a nice jar with a bow, and voila!
•Pot an herb garden. If the moms you love enjoy gardening or cooking, grab some seeds at your local nursery, and pot them for her to get it started. This type of gift will last longer than cut flowers, and she’ll be able to cook with them later on, too.
•Design a personalized bookmark. For all the book worms out there, this is a great Mother’s Day gift that will remind her of you every time she picks up a good book. Find your favorite photo of the two of you and print it out on thick paper stock. Punch or cut a hole at one end and then tie a pretty string or ribbon through it.
•Make a card. Nothing says “I appreciate you” than actually saying it. Use pretty paper to make her a card and write her a lovely note listing all the reasons you’re a better person with her in your life. This is sure to make her feel loved.
