We’ve all heard the jokes about how women love their shoes. If your mom is one of those ladies who needs a separate closet to house her shoe collection, then this gift idea is for you! Stacie from Stars for Streetlights dressed up a pair of Payless flats by adding a bow made from an old scarf. Aren’t they pretty?

Monogram Coffee Mug

anthropologie inspired monogram mug

If your mom is a regular coffee or tea drinker, she will love waking up with a pretty monogrammed mug like this one by Andrea at The Cottage Market. Andrea simply added an initial to a decorative mug with a porcelain paint marker and then cured it per package directions. She says, “Add some yummy tea bags…some fresh coffee beans…maybe a vintage spoon and wrap pretty…a perfect gift for anyone!”

Now I know I am not the only Momma around who likes dangly earrings. The longer the better I say! Over at Infarrantly Creative you can see how I made, not one, but six pairs of pretty chandelier drop earrings for only $15 total. That’s two pairs of earrings for Mom, Mom-in-law, and… yourself! HA!

With Mother’s Day just over a week away, I’m kicking off a few days of fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas – knock-off style, of course {wink}. First up, we have some pretty rope bracelets created by Kim from Made In A Day. I am in love with the chunky cording, bright colors, and little details that Kim included in all her bracelets. With summer right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with these for Mom!

Sharpie Art Plate Wall

Sarah from While They Snooze takes DIY wall art to a whole new level with this plate wall she created using dollar store plates and a Sharpie. This amazing project earned Sarah a well-deserved spot in the top 3 of the Creating with the Star’s knock-off round at East Coast Creative. The secret to Sarah’s beautiful artistry is in using a projector to trace the image onto the plates. With the handy tool, there is no limit to what you draw on your plates and still get stunning results!

Sweater Covered Lampshade

With the transition from winter to spring comes the task of packing away sweaters and pulling out tees and tanks. Before you write off those old sweaters, check out how Beth at Unskinny Boppy made over a plan white lampshade with a thrift store sweater. I love the idea of adding pattern and texture to a lampshade with a few simple cuts and some glue. It’s amazing the changes you can make it a mere 20 minutes!

Pipe and Wood Lamp

Janel from Nellie Bellie really blew me away with this unique lamp she created from pipes, wood spindles, and, of course, time and patience. Not only does it look amazingly like the inspiration, but the price difference is quite astounding ($86 versus $2,800). You can barely buy a lamp and shade from Target for the cost of Janel’s eye-catcher. Talk about making a statement!

“You Are My Sunshine” Pillow

The song “You Are My Sunshine” holds a special place in the heart of Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove. When her daughter was a baby, Brandi’s mother would rock her and sing the sweet lullaby. Brandi was inspired to preserve that special memory by stamping the lyrics onto a pillow for her daughter. I absolutely adore how the pillow came out and the meaning behind it!
