mothers day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you don’t have an idea of what you’re going to give your mother, our embroidered patch company has a few suggestions. With just a few materials and some time, you can create your very own homemade gift:

Sugar Scrub

Help mom relax with a luxurious homemade sugar scrub tailored to her preferences. Start with brown sugar, white sugar, or a mixture of both. Then, slowly add her favorite oil, whether it’s almond, olive, coconut, or another oil until the scrub reaches the consistency you want. After that, add several drops of a scented essential oil and stir thoroughly.

Printed “Stones”

What’s better than a stepping stone with the imprint of a loved one’s hands or feet? With just flour, salt warm water, and some colorful paint, you can create beautiful keepsake stones that can mark a memorable point in time. Just follow this tutorial from The Imagination Tree.

Dipped Kitchen Utensils

Does your mother love to cook? Put a DIY twist on kitchen utensils to make them unique. Start with a few wooden kitchen utensils, some craft paint, and a food-safe clear sealant. Use a foam paintbrush to paint the handles of each utensil, then let dry. Finish them with a coat of sealant and tie a ribbon around them.

Tote Bag

This easy-sew tote bag from HGTV is great for a mom on the go. All you’ll need is two different fabrics, some interfacing, canvas straps, and a basic knowledge of the sewing machine. With just a few quick measurements and stitches, you can have a beautiful, homemade, versatile tote for mom.

Mini Pallet Coasters

Who doesn’t love fun coasters? You can create your very own out of wooden craft sticks, popsicle sticks, some hot glue, and wash tape in several fun colors or patterns. With a little design planning and assembly, you’ll have unique pallet coasters ready to go. Here’s the full tutorial.

Framed “Chalkboard” Quote

If your mother has a favorite quote, song lyric, bible verse, or phrase, turn it into a framed work of art. All you need is some pasteboard, a permanent marker, and a frame. Choose several different fonts and write each part of the saying in a different one to give the piece a “chalkboard” printed feel.

Crate Jewelry Holder

At our embroidery patch company, we bet that mom has a decent amount of jewelry and could use somewhere to store it all. With a few materials and a little time, you could make her a beautiful wine crate jewelry holder (courtesy of HGTV. Click here to learn how to customize your very own.
