Mother’s Day Gift Idea ~ Personalized Flower Pail

A few years ago, my Mother in law gave me this flower pail.  I loved that it was personalized by my kids.  It may have been a simple gesture, but it is still one of my favorite gifts of all time!  While I can’t claim to have actually made it, I thought it was such a good idea I wanted to pass it along for anyone looking for an inexpensive, personal, creative Mother’s day gift this year.

You will need

A small pail

sharpies or other permanent marker, or paint marker

kids to color on the pail

Something to fill the pail (My Mother in law picked Gerber daisies, my favorite!)

Really it doesn’t take a lot of explanation for this. You have your child draw on the bucket with the permanent markers. Easy enough, right?

It is so simple and easy to make this. My kids are older now, and draw much differently, but I love that I have this little snippet of a time when they were so little!  My favorite part is that all of my kids added something to it and I have a small piece of each of them that I will treasure always.

To make these you will need:

  • Chop stick or Straw

  • Glue
  • Yellow tissue paper

To Create a Paper Daisy:

1.       Wrap a chopstick with green tissue paper, securing with tape. (You can also use a green bendy straw.)
2.       Cut a 16 inch long section of white crepe paper.
3.       Fold it repeatedly in 1 inch sections by wrapping around your fingers.
4.       Cut strips into the top 3-quarters of the paper.
5.       Unwind the frayed paper and glue the bottom un-cut portion to your green stem.
6.       Circle the paper around the stem, occasionally securing with a tiny dot of glue.
7.       Once the entire length of paper is spiraled around the top of the stem, secure with glue and fluff petals.
8.       Tear off a small portion of yellow tissue paper, about the size of a quarter, roll or crunch it into a ball and glue into the center of the daisy.

DIY Ring Holder ~ Thrifty Mother’s Day Gift Idea

Looking for a thrifty Mother’s day gift that is guaranteed to be loved and used for a very long time?  This is a great idea!  And even better, the supplies are inexpensive and mom doesn’t have to know!

You will need

A small photo frame (Mine is from the dollar section at Michael’s)

Small scrap of scrapbook paper

Thumbtack

Hot glue

Sticky jewel for the front of thumb tack

ring holder ~ great Mother's day gift, #thriftygifts, #gifts, #diy, #diygifts, #crafts, #mothersdaycraft

Begin by taking out the piece of paper that comes inside your frame.  Also remove the clear plastic or glass inside.  Now, use the paper from the inside to trace the shape on the back of your scrapbook paper and cut it out.

Add that paper into your frame.  Take your thumbtack and put the sticky gem (also from the dollar section at Michael’s) to the front of it.  Poke the thumbtack through the cardboard backing of the frame.  If desired you can secure it on the back with a little super glue or hot glue.  Just to make sure it isn’t going to fall apart on Mom!  This is perfect to keep by the kitchen sink to use while washing dishes, the bathroom for shower time, or even next to the bed so she can hang her rings while she sleeps.

That is it, a complete Mother’s day for your Mom!  If you want to earn a few extra brownie points, you could always add a ring too!

Once again with our Simple and Frugal Mothers Day ideas… today I am going to show you how to make this ” Heart Bloom Card”.  All you need is 4 colors of pattern paper, scissors, glue and blue and white card stock.

Mothers Day card

First fold and cut your card stock to the size of card you want.  Next cut the blue card stock just smaller than the card front and glue it to the front. Next cut out 8 hearts the exact same size ( 2 of each color).  Fold one of each color in half and glue the fold to the other heart.  Once that has dried glue them onto the card… easy as that you have your very own Heart Bloom card, ready to give to Mom for her special day.
