Mothers’ Day Mug:
‘Home is where your mom is’. A wonderful message you can scribble out on a tea mug (since she likes to have tea). So why not gift her a tea mug prepared by you?
Ingredients: White ceramic mug, ceramic paint marker, oven
Procedure: First wash and dry up the mug of your choice. Make a design or just write the text on it. Allow the text to dry completely. Now bake it in the oven for a good 30-40 minutes at a temperature of 375 degrees and you are done.
Mothers’ Day Picture Flower Pots:
Isn’t it a nice feeling gifting mom something made out of your hands? Awesome it sounds. Flower pots make a lovely homemade gift. Make hand prints on the flower pots and paste photographs of yourself and your mom in the centre of the flowers. If need be, put this flower pot in your mom’s room. Each day and night when she looks at it, it would further seal her bonding with you.
Felt Heart Bookmarks:
Have a heart? Of course you do. It ticks with joy, love, affection, care and all the human emotions. Mother’s Day is the best day when you need to show your mom how much she means to you. And here is a very simple technique to do that. Cut out two felt hearts, sew them together and what you get is a fancy and lovable bookmark. If you know stitching, you can do an embroidered pattern as well on one heart before you stitch both hearts together.
Mom’s Treasure Box:
Hand decorated treasure boxes will give a smile to your Mom’s face. And it’s easy to make.
Ingredients: Small box with a lid (available at gift stores), a pair of scissors, scrapbook paper, paintbrush, glue sealer, trinkets for decoration (buttons, sequins, stickers, gems)
Procedure: Cut scrapbook paper to cover each side of the box, whether it is top of the box lid or sides. Make a collage of different pieces of scrapbook paper or use just one individual piece and paste it on the box by using glue. To add decorative touches, paste trinket items on the box with glue.
