DIY Gift: Mother’s Day Flowers

Let’s talk homemade Mother’s Day gifts! My mom still uses a clay vase I made her when I was nine. NINE. It’s not very pretty and water usually leaks from the bottom. But still, she places her flowers in it week after week, month after month, because I made it.

Nearly two decades later, my mama still loves a homemade gift. She’d probably be thrilled with another leaking vase. But, I found a better Mother’s Day gift — DIY flowers that spell out “MOM.” Michael’s sells hollow letters of varying sizes. Fill with foam and fresh blooms, and your mama will be bragging! Better yet, you should brag about HER.

PS. read this story on my mama and the strength of mothers everywhere.
