Mother’s Day DIY Ideas

Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us and if you’re like me, you may have procrastinated in the past with getting a thoughtful and meaningful gift for your mom resulting in a gift certificate to a nail salon (ain’t nothing wrong with that though).  This year, I really want to try and do a DIY gift because I know she will love that it came from the heart.  (But hey, if you’re not crafty– I think ALL moms would love these earrings.) Of course, Pinterest is my go-to for these types of situations.  I like to think I am creative but sometimes the best ideas are derived from Pinterest and changed up a bit with some true originality. So today I put together some of my absolute fave ideas I found online that were featured on other blogs.
1. Mason Jar Picture Frames 
How cute are these?  I’m thinking of maybe doing them with a big wine bottle instead.  I just love anything that has to do with pictures that will last forever.

2. Confetti Inspired Terra Cotta Pots
Flowers and moms are like peanut butter and jelly.  There just isn’t a mom that doesn’t like flowers, right?! These confetti flower pots are too cute.

Who doesn’t love to have a treat yo’self day every once in a while? One of my best friends, Sara, and I are guilty of having them way too often.  I love this spa basket idea with all of the little treat yo’self essentials in one tin.  I’d probably add a mini wine bottle to the mix along with some yummy snacks and some pretty mini nail polishes.  I also love this idea because one of my favorite childhood memories is getting manicures and pedicures with my mom.  True fact: I became an entrepreneur at age 8 and opened up a “business” called “SSC” (Shelby’s Shopping Center) where I offered services to my customers (aka my mom) including manis, pedis, veggies I grew out of my own garden… that happened.  I had business cards.

Who doesn’t need magnets?  Why not have them be meaningful?  These magnets are the cutest things ever and I may just make a set for myself too.

Over the holidays last year I made these wine bottle decorations by wrapping them with yarn.  They turned out great and since then, I’ve really wanted to make some for other people as a gift.  I used Christmas colors at that time but for Mother’s Day, I would definitely use some natural looking twine, maybe some white or pastel yarn, and make them a year-round decoration.  I’ve also wanted to wrap a Patron bottle because it’s a really unique shape.  When I do these, the more variety I have makes the finished product look way better.  
Aren’t these colors so pretty for spring?  I can definitely see them on top of the window sill in the kitchen at my mom’s house.  Just get her some fresh flowers and arrange them in these pretty jars.  I might even make some of these for my own place. 
I hope you liked some of these and maybe got some inspiration for Mother’s Day.  Let me know if you have any other DIY ideas for the occasion.

xo, Shelby
