diy with Brittni:

May 6, 2011

Hey there! It's Brittni from papernstitch with your latest diy project round up: last minute ideas for Mom on Mother's Day. She changed your diapers, cleaned your dirty laundry, and listened to all your boy-drama throughout high school (and college). So, let's celebrate Moms everywhere today with this list of must-try craft projects...

(above) Start the day off right by pinning one of these paper beauties onto Mom's dress before lunch. She'll feel special all day knowing that you made it just for her. Make your own paper flower corsage now, courtesy of Oh Happy Day.

And speaking of lunch... If you've decided to set up the festivities at home, why not go all out and make these sweet watercolor place cards for the table? Get the full tutorial for making your own diy drawer knob watercolor place cards from 100 Layer Cake.

For Moms with a sweet tooth, print out these (free) printable tags from Ez at Creature Comforts and fill a few mason jars with homemade carmel and fudge sauces. Yum! Get all the details for making your own sauce and grab the printable tags pdf here.

And if Mom fancys herself as more of a scientist than a cook, pick a gorgeous bouquet of her favorite flowers and paint a few (very unique) beakers for a gift she'll always remember. Or use them to decorate the table at brunch. Learn how to recreate this look on Compai.

Make a pair of earrings for just a couple of bucks and a few minutes of your time with this vintage earrings tutorial from Life Through the Lens. Get the full step-by-step instructions for these rose earrings right here.

And for a more practical gift that's still pretty awesome, create a few soy candles that Mom will use day in and day out in her favorite scents. Learn how to make your own soy candles now on Ruffled.

That's all for now. See you next time! And for all you Moms out there...

Happy Mother's Day!
