Here is a list of easily done crafts that will put a smile on any mother or grandmother this Mother’s Day:
DIY pressed Flower Art
Grab some white frames from your local Walmart (link here https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-11x14-Matted-to-8x10-Linear-Frame-White/54466865) and go outside on a flower hunt! My girls are always bringing me flowers from the yard and what a sweet way to remember those days for the rest of your life. If you have children, let them pick up flowers or wildflowers and make their own collage and finish the project together! They will be proud to see their flowers decorating the house and you will have a hight fashion keepsake that looks like you decorated right out of home decor section of Anthropologie.
Breakfast In Bed
An old one, but a good one! Cook her favorite breakfast but I suggest adding one thing; CLEAN the kitchen (and other rooms if time allows!) I promise, this will mean so much to her!
Her Favorite Things Box
If you are needing last-minute gift inspiration here you go! A homemade card and a box of her favorite color, candy, and soaps will show how much you care! It’s an inexpensive but thoughtful way to show that you know all the little things that bring a smile to her face.
Personalized Wooden Spoons
This has to be one of my favorites! From young to old this is one of the most fun projects. Get a box of permanent markers, some wooden spoons from any local store, and let the creativity flow. I promise these will bring a smile to any mother’s face.
Shop Local Basket
As a small business owner myself, I know one of the most precious gifts you can give is that from a local business. Not only are you supporting your local community, especially during COVID, but you will be giving a gift of specialty items that will make your mom feel totally pampered! If you are in a crunch on time, I promise local shops will do whatever they can to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. Reach out to your local stores and they would be more than happy to gather items for your Mom. (Most even gift wrap for free! And all the Dad’s said AMEN!)
This is a Mother or Grandmother’s dream! How precious to see those little hands and feet forever on an apron?! Head to the grilling department at any local store and pick up a solid white apron. Then grab some fabric paint and a few brushes and go to town.
Painted Flour Sack Towels
Last but certainly not least, these towels bring home our list. This gift is one that I love for myself and its a fun project to do with the kids. Inexpensive to create but incredibly priceless once completed. Head to your local general store and grab a pack of Flour Sack Towels. These are thin white hand towels that can be used in the kitchen. Then you will need some fabric paint and paintbrushes. Create your design and let it dry. These towels will be able to withstand actual use! So no need to hide them away! Mothers and grandmothers will be able to wash these without the fear of losing the precious art.
