Make Homemade Gifts for Mother’s Day
One thing all moms tend to have in common when it comes to gifts: homemade is best. Moms love gifts from the heart, so this Mother’s Day, Cascade Floral Wholesale has put together some fabulous Do-It-Yourself gift ideas for moms. Simple enough for even the craft-challenged and too cute to pass up, you’ll love creating these gifts almost as much as mom will love receiving them. Your thoughtful time and effort will bring a huge smile to her face and give her a beautiful keepsake that shows how much you love her. Take a look at some of these great ideas, then get busy! You may even tuck a few ideas away for mom’s birthday, as well!
Whether you opt for a wicker wreath full of bright spring flowers, or a whimsical painted design with the kids’ photos in the middle, mom will love a hand-made wreath she can proudly display. For a floral wreath, gather the flowers you want to include and your favorite floral foam shape. Cut stems to the preferred length, then add to the foam until it’s covered evenly with flowers. Fill empty spaces with fresh greenery or bunches of burlap ribbon to style.
Moms will love a fresh floral corsage made just for her! Gather 3-4 like-colored flowers together, trimming the stems to the same length. Lay flowers flat and arrange until you’re happy with the look. Gather stems together and wrap with floral tape tightly enough that flowers won’t move. Choose a ribbon that complements the colors of your flowers and tie around stems, completely covering the floral tape. A sweet knot is a great finish, but beautiful bows can add flair, as well! Secure with a straight pin through the ribbon and floral tape for mom to wear to brunch!
There are so many great ways to design a beautiful centerpiece that mom will love. This season, we’re loving the look of individual stems in small vases. Choose mom’s favorite color and flower (pink roses, yellow daisies?) and put each stem in its own small clear or milk glass vase. Arrange in a wooden crate or atop a cake stand for a gorgeous centerpiece at your Mother’s Day tea party!
DIY Floral Tea Bags
Speaking of tea parties, choose a variety of mom’s favorite flavors of tea, and tie each bag to individual flower blossoms with a cut stem. Attach pre-printed labels to tell mom how much she means to you to the tea strings, as well. Arrange each decorated tea bag around the tea table so everyone can choose their favorite (leave a few for mom to keep, too!).
DIY Succulent Mason Jars
This is such a sweet, simple project, you might just keep going and make a few for yourself as well! Paint mason jars with matte paint in spring colors, fill with potting soil and add a cute succulent to the top. Bonus points for including photos of the kids or grandkids on each mason jar! Mom can decorate her table, office desk or windowsill with these sweet little gems.
Whatever you choose to give your mom for Mother’s Day, be sure it’s heartfelt and sincere. Homemade gifts are a great way to show mom how much she means to you.
