Monogram Hand Towel


This morning I shared some pretty monogrammed soaps that Amy from The Idea Room carved up herself. I love the idea of pairing the soaps with a DIY monogram hand towel for Mom. Amy tells exactly how easy this project is: “This project literally took me about 15 minutes to complete and I had all the products already on hand…Love it when that happens!” Even if you don’t use a Silhouette or their sewable fabric interfacing, you could still easily pull this off by tracing and cutting out your own letter and adhering it with Heat ‘n Bond.

Hand Carved Monogram Soap


I’m excited to share a double feature for our final day of Mother’s Day gift ideas from one of my bloggy buddies, Amy from The Idea Room. Amy is a lover of monograms and decided to try her hand soap carving, and boy was I blown away by her skills! Isn’t it amazing how she transformed the bar of Lever 2000 with a veggie peeler? Throw in the pretty packaging, and you’ve got a great gift for Mother’s Day!

Cloche Jewelry Holder


If your mom loves jewelry but already has enough to out-bling Vegas,  why not make her a jewelry holder for Mother’s Day? There are tons of tutorials out there for DIY jewelry storage, but what I love about this cloche from Christine at Tin’s Bloggin is that it is made from recyclables. How perfect is it for storing bracelets, watches, or rings?!?

Clip Picture Frame

I absolutely love this upcycled frame project from Wendy at Craft Jr! When Wendy saw a $200 card holder from Pottery Barn, she knew it was something her kids could make for a fraction of the price using an old frame. Filled with family photos, special mementos, and, of course, a heartfelt note, this would make a lovely gift that mom would treasure for years to come!

Chevron Beach Tote


Your sun-loving mom will look fab walking across the beach with this stylish chevron tote from Jaime at That’s My Letter. Jaime’s tote features a fun navy chevron print with fuchsia monogram, drop cloth canvas lining, and rope handle. In all honesty, I would choose Jamie’s bag hands-down over her inspiration from Pottery Barn Teen!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Art


When Mandy from We Three Mothers wanted The Very Hungry Caterpillar artwork for her son’s bedroom but couldn’t afford the price tag, she teamed up with her son to DIY for less. They simply purchased a canvas and some tissue paper and then spent the morning cutting and gluing together. Kids are generally pretty oblivious to wall décor, but you know Mandy’s son will always love this special art he made with his mommy!

Ruffled Stripe Pillow Cover


You all know I love a good pillow DIY, and Javeriya from Believe & Inspire brings it with this cover that’s full of fluff and frills. Javeriya was able to customize the colors of her pillow so they fit into the theme of the room to perfection… and all for the low low price of about $4!

Pieced Wood Artwork


Melissa of This Girl’s Life recreated a piece of woodwork art she liked from Pottery Barn to better fit her budget and color-scheme. Melissa knew it was going to be an easy DIY (since it’s literally just pieces of wood!) and had the entire piece of artwork completed in less than a day. Even purchasing all the wood for the project, Melissa still spent only what it would have cost in taxes had she purchased directly from Pottery Barn. You could save even more if you’ve got wood scraps stored away!
