I missed you guys so much. I am sorry that I wasn’t able to write last week I was really busy but I am back now! Todays blog post I am going to show you how to make a cute and simple D.I.Y. and some other good ideas to keep in mind so that your mom feels special. Ok. This diy is something that I found on pinterest and thought that the colours and theme matched my mom’s style. It was the first letter on her name using sticks. I also spiced it up by making some sparkly dip dyed feathers.
What you will need to make the letter is:
~A bunch of sticks
(If you have a tree this will be easy but if you don’t ask a neighbour)
(make sure that it is strong enough to hold the sticks together)
~A base for the sticks
(I glued my sticks to canvas but paper would work too)
(to cut the stick to the right length)
(to outline your letter)
(if the wood look doesn’t suite your house decor you can paint the sticks)
To make the feathers:
(I found mine at my local craft store but they are a bit tricky to find)
(to make sure that the glitter sticks to the feather*only the top half*)
~A paint brush
(to paint on the glue)
(to dip the glue coated feather in)
I thought that it was just really cute and easy. If you want to make the craft even more personal like I did you can add a little note to the back of it.
Other things to make your mother feel special on mothers day are to give her breakfast in bed. This shows her that right at the start of the day you are thinking of her. Get her some pretty flowers! Make sure she gets what she wants to eat for her special day. Just make her feel special and if something goes wrong just remember it is what is on the inside that counts!
My mom and I were scrolling through Pintrest and found this super cute DIY for spring. To be honest I only made like 5 of these flowers because I’m horrible at crafts. These flowers took about 7 minutes each to make and you can put them as a center-piece or even give them to your mom for Mother’s Day! It cost about $6 for all the supplies to make 3 vases full of flowers.Here’s how you make them.
First you will need:
green floral tape
Step 1: Carefully rip out a colourful page from an old magazine and fold it in half hot-dog ways.
Step 2: Fold one side in to the middle and then the other side to the crease you just made.
Step 3: Next, take the scissors and cut close to the fold line.
Step 4: Tape the skewer to the inside edge of the paper and start rolling. Tape the end in place when it’s all rolled up like a flower.
Step 5: Starting at the top, wrap the bottom of the flower, with the green floral tape, where you can see the bottom edge and start taping down the skewer.
Step 6: Shape the flower how you like and place it in a vase 🙂
HAPPY (almost) APRIL! Just before New Years I was on Pintrest and found a great idea I thought I would try. A Gratitude Jar. This is a jar that you write down your accomplished goals, LOL moments, highlights, daily blessings and other good things that happen to you that day. Do this everyday of the year starting January 1st and on December 31st open the jar and read them all 🙂 I know that it is a little late to start now but maybe you can keep the idea in the back of your head for next year! I think that the Gratitude Jar is a great idea for remembering the fabulous events that happened in your year and to remind you to forget about the bad things. Everyday is a new and you can start fresh every morning being kind to people and thinking of others. If you already do this GREAT extra brownie points 😉 Sometimes it’s hard to remember to include other and listen to their opnions but if you do this, you are more likely to have friends and people want to be around you. Talk to you next week! <3
