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.
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.

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.
