Happy weekend my friend! Here’s some random thoughts on a chilly autumn morning.
Even though in New Zealand we don’t have the huge amount of deciduous trees (I guess that's why we call it autumn and not fall), the ones we do have around us are colouring up to beautiful fall colours. It’s so lovely to see. The mornings are getting cooler, even though we’re still having some lovely sunny days. We had a couple of days of rain this week which was great for my garden.
I was hoping to bring you a virtual holiday written by a friend today but she’s been busy with work so didn’t get to it. Instead, I thought that I would share some handmade Mother’s Day gift ideas.
It’s less than a month to Mother’s Day! I don’t have a Mum or Mother-in-Law so I don’t buy any presents these days. I do take the time on Mother’s Day to remember both these special ladies.
Of course, the first thing on my list is handmade jewellery. After all, that’s my thing. Not only would I love to make jewelry for my Mum, I also like to receive jewellery.
Here’s eight jewellery project tutorials you could make for your Mom:
This heart tassel pendant also has matching earrings.
This memory wire bracelet is a great place to start if you've never used memory wire before.
These earrings are super cute and super easy to make.
This is the necklace made for my niece who is also a Mum. It's so fun and super easy to make.
Another memory wire bracelet - this time with a bit more of a design element. I love this one and wear it all the time.
How impress would your Mum be if you made her this necklace for Mother's Day? This necklace is a beginner project so if you've never made jewelry before, this is a great place to start.
You won't believe these earrings are also a beginner project. I made these ones to demonstrate how to make a simple loop. Watch the video to find out how.
This bracelet has a bit of an 80s throwback vibe.
If you’re not into jewellery, here’s some other ideas:
Don’t these lotion bars look divine? Made with just three ingredients. If you’ve never made soap before but always wanted to try, this could be a great place to start.
If your Mum is more of a chocolate kinda girl (duh! Which Mum isn’t), then why not make her a beautiful box of chocolates?
For a baby mamma, this beautiful nursery wreath would be amazing. Actually, it would fit anywhere, not just in a nursery.
If you would like to make your Mother a handmade card, check out these two.
This card from the Gathered in the Kitchen is lovely.
I really love this idea of making your own paper to make your own card. Check this out.
If you're really short on time to make your Mum something, this coffee sugar scrub takes about five minutes and most of the ingredients you will already have.
If you don't want to hand make your Mother's Day gift, here's my best suggestions for gifts to purchase.
That’s all I have for you today.
Tell me, (in the comments below) are you going to be spending the weekend making a beautiful gift for that special lady in your life?
It really doesn’t matter what it is – handmade gifts are always so special.
Have a great weekend – see you next week.
