Planting flowers in the garden is so last Mother's Day. This year, turn it up a notch with a terrarium-making sesh. Start with sand, shells, rocks, and colorful brush to create the base, then look to low-maintenance air plants to fill it up. The trendy succulents require just one quick dip under the faucet each week.
Pack the basket with goodies and pop a squat. Between all the fresh air and Brie and crackers, it's no question a picnic is one of our favorite Mother's Day activities. Get extra crafty by embroidering your picnic blanket with a sweet memo. Mom will love the personalized touch, plus the blanket doubles as a cute gift she'll use again and again.
Head over to Lovely Indeed for the DIY Picnic Blanket.
It's easy to enjoy DIY Mother's Day crafts with Mom when there's a spa kit involved. Pamper her with face masks, bath bombs, hand scrubs, nail polish, and sparkling water. Just don't forget the Enya!
Hand scrub how-to: Mix melted coconut oil, granulated sugar, and almond extract with a bit of food coloring, then fill a jar with your homemade scrub.
Take Mother's Day crafts beyond paper and glue with this homemade rose-spiced sugar. All you need: 1 cup sugar, ½ cup dried pink or red rose petals, and 1 teaspoon allspice. Pop it all into a food processor for a quick minute, and voila! Download the Mason jar labels here.
Set up a wine tasting for Mom on the patio, and offer a flight of her favorite sips and cheese pairings. Our favorite combos: Pinot Noir and Gruyere, Chardonnay and Brie, and Prosecco and Asiago.
