Tuesday's Tip - Mother's Day Handmade Gift Ideas!

Share

Mother's Day is just around the corner...May 10! I have already stocked up on some monogrammed note cards & beautiful soaps, but I also wanted to see some of your ideas and share some I came across.

I found this one on the Better Homes & Gardens Website....
flower arrangement

Wrapped-Up Vase

Dress up a plain vase with grosgrain ribbon (usually less than $1 a yard). Hot-glue one end of the ribbon at the bottom, wrap it around the vase in evenly overlapping layers, and glue the other end at the top. Add a ribbon tie and pin on a tag. After the flowers fade, the vase makes a cute pencil cup.


And I love this blog, they are so creative...Karis & Kijsa......

You could easily print, hand-write, or if you do calligraphy....a favorite quote or Bible verse, spruce it up in a gorgeous frame, or keep it simple as shown here.....



Or, if you are not in the mood to be so crafty yourself, you can purchase some great handmade items from some of these lovely Mom-prenuers....

I make Scrabble Pendants, Soy Linen & Body Spray, & Scrabble Magnets....

I love this Covered Notebook, the posy pins, & zippered pouches over at Pleated Poppy...

My friend Courtney makes these Mommy necklaces that just about all of my friends have...love them!
