May 02, 2016
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and you still haven’t got a gift? Don’t worry – we have you covered. This year skip the stores and make your mom something she’ll truly treasure. We found some fabulous DIY projects from a few of the best bloggers out there. Check ‘em out and surprise mom with something homemade this Sunday.

Terrific Terrarium - Terrariums make a great addition to any space, so help mom add some gorgeous greenery to her office, kitchen, bedroom, or den with this fun project from DIY Just Cuz. Brittany shows us not only how to put a terrarium together, but also how to easily etch a message on to the glass. Whether you want mom to know that she’s the best or that you love her, this sweet gift is a great idea. Click here for the full tutorial.

Fierce Flowers - Is your mom a tea drinker? She’ll love these super sweet, super simple flowery tea bags from Kipi. Cut off your tea’s tag and attach a beautiful bloom. Smaller is better, (Kipi recommends carnations), but if you can find mom’s favorite flowers they’ll work well too. Turn afternoon tea into an absolute delight with this adorable craft.

Homemade Ginger teaches us how to bend the wire into a heart shape and create the ultimate photo holder. All you need is some wire, glue, wooden blocks, and cute photos of you and your family.
