She ALWAYS knows what gift will bring you joy, but your panic begins a week before every Mother’s Day… “Should we plan a weekend getaway?” “Should we take her out to the movies?” “Should we call people over for a dinner party?” While all of these might be typically good ideas, nothing expresses your love and thoughtfulness as much as a handcrafted gift! This Mother’s Day DezignGenie.com has brought to you a few simple, yet extraordinary DIY ideas that will definitely put a twinkling smile on your Mother’s face.
Scarf watchband: So what if you picked up yet another scarf from the flea and don’t know where to wear it? Let’s help you out put to new use – as a watch! All you have to do is replace the belts by weaving the scarf around the bars that hold the bands of the watch. Now let your mom walk the streets making this groundbreaking timeless fashion statement!
Blossoming Wall Art: Bright faux flowers glued to the insides of a hollow papier-mâché in the shape of mom’s initials will ascertain an everlasting glow on her face!
Homemade Trivet: Is your mother an admirer of artsy crockery? Why not craft her a trivet to complement her collection? Dismantle 40 clothespins, lay them flat side down and make a hole in each (1/2-inch from narrow end). Wire the pins together passing it through the double-notched sides (all facing the same direction). Tug the wire into a circle and voila! This DIY is literally anybody’s cup of tea.
Wine Cork Vases: Who doesn’t enjoy an occasional glass of wine (or sometimes more)? Express your appreciation of your mother’s interests (and of course, yours) by building an innovative cork vase! Do this by using a tall glass, about 40-70 corks, some heavy-duty glue to stick these onto the glass, and ta-da! DG suggests going for similar sized and shaped corks for uniformity and a vintage look. However, for a quirky and fun gift, the world is your playground with mix and match! Quite a cool and light-on-your-pocket gift, don’t you think?
Mother’s Day Special Lunch Menu: Cook her an exclusive meal of her favourite cuisine. But don’t stop there. Enrich the exclusive feeling to this lunch by printing the menu on the napkin with a cute message! Don’t worry it is not as backbreaking as you think. Print out your message and menu from ‘Word’ but using white iron-on transfer paper. Then simply iron it onto a napkin of your mum’s taste (for extra brownie points)! Cakewalk isn’t it?
Follow any of the above and DezignGenie guarantees you a little extra allowance from Mother this month! If this article has eased you off the do-not-forget-to-gift-her-something Day, then please share with us in the comments below.
