In many parts of the world, Mothers Day is celebrated Sunday, May 8th, and there is nothing more special to Mom than a handmade gift. There's still time to whip something up! Here are five thoughtful gift ideas that you can make before Sunday, because giving something handmade shows you really care.
1. Photo Plant Stakes
Attach photos of all Mom's kids to floral wire and insert them into a potted plant. What a sweet bouquet!
2. Rose Petal Picture Frame
Frame a favorite photo for Mom in a frame you embellished with silk rose petals. She will cherish it forever.
3. Kitchen Utensil Bouquet
If Mom loves to cook, here's a great way to present new kitchen utensils: gather them together, add some sprigs of flowers, and tie with a pretty ribbon.
4. Teacup Candles
Making candles is easier than you think, especially if you make teacup candles. You're sure to find plenty of beautiful cups at your local thrift store, and wax and wicks can be found in most craft supply stores.
5. Spring Cookies
If Mom's got a sweet tooth, make her a batch of flower shaped cookies, and decorate them in bright spring colors. What a tasty way to share your love.
