There’s not much that melts a Grandma’s heart like her grandchildren, and most grandmas will go gaga for a gift personalized with their names. Last year I created this framed wall art for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. At Infarrantly Creative I walk you through the process to make your own custom printable using a free online program. I promise it is super quick and easy and sure to bring a smile to Grandma or Mom’s face!
I know I have shared in the past that I am a sucker for a nice long soak in the tub. Throw in a bath bomb, and I am in heaven! If your mom is anything like me, then she will adore these homemade bath bombs that Christina from Intimate Weddings made using fillable ball ornaments as molds. You could even pair them with magazines and a plush robe for a spa-inspired gift basket!
Mother’s Day is just two weeks away! For those of us who love a DIY, that means it’s time to get crafty and make Momma or Granny (or any other lovely lady you’d like to honor) a gift she is going to love. I’ve got some awesome tutorials all lined up with gifts that will make Mom feel pretty, pampered, and most of all LOVED and appreciated this Mother’s Day!
Becki and Chris of The Uncommon Common Law were this year’s winner of Creating with the Stars at East Coast Creative. And looking at this stunning bench they made, it’s not too hard to see why! The couple recreated the infamous Nelson Bench for only $136, and it’s a dead ringer for the original. I simply love the look of the natural maple and ebony legs and am amazed by Becki and Chris’ workmanship. Gorgeous!
Lora from Craftivity Designs has always loved a striped runner and was dreaming of one for her office. The Birmingham Black Woven Cotton Rug from Dash and Albert is one of her favorites, but $133 was more than Lora wanted to spend. On a trip to IKEA, she spotted the Soften Rug which had dark gray and white strips just like her inspiration rug. One rug was too small, so Lora picked up two and stitched them together with some fishing line. Now Lora has that 10-foot-long striped runner she was dreaming about for only $50!
Jacqui of Brooke Eva has tremendous style and DIY savvy. Just check out these upholstered x-benches she made for East Coast Creative’s Creating with the Stars competition. I mean… WOW! Jacqui built these babies from the ground up, cutting those beautiful legs from wood, upholstering every inch with charcoal fabric, and finishing it off with nailhead trim. Hello, Gorgeous!
Shayna of The Wood Grain Cottage loves one-of-a-kind lighting and wanted to create a fixture from an old grain sieve. The problem was all the vintage sieves she found were either way to expensive or too big. Knock-off time! Shayna shares at Infarrantly Creative how she made her own wooden sieve using basswood and wire and turned it into a light with a pendant kit… all for only $20. Shayna says it’s the perfect touch to her newly-designed mudroom!
