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.

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?!?

Anthropologie has some of the cutest aprons that would make great gifts for ladies who love to cook and entertain. Katie from Craptastic created a spot-on knock off of one of Anthro’s adorable aprons for her sister-in-law as a Christmas gift that features feminine ruffles and pleats, piping, and a rosette. Watch out June Cleaver!

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!

Rope Knot Necklace

It’s no secret that many mommas like jewelry so here’s another stylish gift idea for Mom shared by MacKenzie at Encourage Fashion. MacKenzie created a pretty dip-dyed knot necklace that’s great for summer and simple enough that even those with no jewelry-making skills can pull it off. I love the ombre effect MacKenzie achieved with her dye. So pretty!

Monogram Zipper Pouch

If you loved the chevron beach totes by Jaime from That’s My Letter that I recently shared, then you’ll go gaga for the cutie zipper pouches she created from the remnants. These little pouches would be super handy for holding lip gloss and personal items in a purse or tote or packing make-up and toiletries for travel. What mom can’t use a little more organization in her life?
