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!
If your momma is a lady who can never have enough bags, then this DIY gift idea is for you! Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling was loving the look of a striped, gold tipped tote from West Elm and recreated it with one of my favorite mediums – good ol’ paint! You can easily customize your bag with Mom’s favorite colors, and Amy says Hobby Lobby sells a variety of bag styles to meet any need. Mom will never guess it only cost $8 to make!
For only an hour of your time, Amy from Joyful Daisy shows how you can save $150-$175 on a table runner just like one from her beloved MacKenzie-Childs. Amy was thrilled when she came across a green toile fabric her mom had purchased years ago for a forgotten project and paired with her own houndstooth fabric to make this table runner for only $1. Amy says, “This adorable table runner would make a perfect gift for mom with Mother’s Day right around the corner, and you could even top it off with a fresh bouquet of flowers.”
I am a momma who loves donning a showy piece of jewelry or hair accessory, so it’s no wonder this feather headband from Michelle at Daydream Believer caught my eye. Michelle fell head over heals for a similar piece from Anthropologie, saying, “It was love at first sight! The color, the shape. It had an edge but was still feminine. I just dug it.” BUT it was $288! With a scrap of leather, a little ribbon, and a strand of beads or stones, Michelle made her own for only $5. At that price, you can make several for all the special ladies you’d like to honor for Mother’s Day!
