Mother's Day Personalized Gifts

May is here, and Mother's Day is right around the corner!  Blessed to be a mom myself, I find that the best gifts come from the heart.  No need to spend a lot of money to show love and gratitude!

I personally appreciate the heartfelt and homemade crafts that my kiddos take the time to make for me.  I love their handwritten cards with their one-of-a-kind drawings!  Anything they make that has their cute faces or handprints on them are the BEST!!!  I just love to see the excitement on their faces before they give me their presents.  And the hugs and kisses they shower upon me are just priceless and irreplaceable!  I cherish their youthfulness and unsolicited affection since I know that it won't last forever...

I rounded up two personalized gift ideas to help celebrate and thank all the moms out there:

No better way to store your groceries than with these recyclable totes!  They're great for the beach or park too.

Supplies needed:  Canvas tote bag, fabric paint, fabric markers (or paint pens), foam brushes, paper plates, wipes, newspaper (or disposable tablecloth)

DIY Tutorial (CAD INTERIORS):  Cover a hard surface (table or floor) with newspaper or a disposable tablecloth.  Lay out all the supplies onto the covered work surface.  Pour each fabric paint color onto its own individual paper plate.  Lightly place your child's palm (one at a time) on the paint color of their choice.  Use a foam brush to spread the paint across the palm of their hand.  Place hand on canvas tote.  Allow the handprint to dry a few minutes before using the fabric markers or paint pens to draw the details.

Tip:  Immediately use wipes on your child's hands to remove the paint.  The paint dries quickly.  It will be easier to wash it all off.


This idea resulted from a "Lowes Creative Ideas Blogger" project challenge.  Click here for the DIY tutorial.  I love this project!  You can also use the jar to store pens, pencils, scissors, etc.

Wishing all moms a very Happy Mother's Day!
