Left it to the last minute and busy running around look for something to give your mother to show her how much you appreciate the miracle (aka 10 hour labour) of your birth? Why not make something for her instead – these simple projects require very few supplies and can be made in just a few hours. Crafternoon anyone?
Collect some plates from your local second hand store and make her a porcelain jewelry stand. Use a nice oil to make her a Diptyque inspired candle, without the price tag! Hint: if you don’t have the wax beads, melt a few simple candle sticks instead. Or repot a succulent into pretty pot,because unlike your friends, your mother has proven she can raise a living thing, so chances of longevity are pretty good with this gift. And finally, top it off with a pretty hand lettered card – this is probably the part your old lady will cherish the most!
