I love to make my own gifts for my mum and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to do so!
Ever since I was a little girl I can always remember making my own cards and gifts which was probably made out of scrap pieces of paper but whatever they were my mummy loved them! She always found a special place to exhibit my creations, on the fire surround or on the kitchen side where everyone would see them.
My mum loves to receive home made cards or gifts as she says they have that special touch and are more thoughtful!
I think Jak takes after me as he is always making me things, last year I received a purse made out of paper and a card in the shape of a mug with a T-Bag in it. This year he tells me that he is going to make me a cake and I can’t wait as he is turning out to be quite a little sous chef and I am sure it will be very tasty.
I posted out earlier in the week an DIY hanging wooden heart decoration that I have made for my mum, well today I added to her gifts and made another hanging creation.
I bought the wooden weaved heart from Morrisons for £2 and the yellow foam flowers are from Hobbycraft (can’t remember how much, probably £3).
The flowers come with wire attached to them so it easy to twine them around things to attach them.
A really simple DIY gift, cheap but I think really effective.
I just hope mummy likes it 🙂
