Last Minute MOTHER’s Day roundup

Yesterday the kids came home from school with Mother’s Day cards and decorated flower pots. And immediately, my heart melted. They could have brought me a hand-scribbled drawing and I would have loved it. There’s just something about a handmade gift.

So if you’re still looking for that last-minute, simple handmade gift….here are some ideas from your house and mine….

Painted tin-can flower pots by Dos Family (seen via Creature Comforts). Genius! Fill them with flowers and give to mom! (make sure you poke holes in the bottom of the cans for drainage).

A simple Kid Art project by Kinderpendent:

Two cool pop-up card ideas….Martha Stewart Crafts Dept (seen via Poppytalk):

Crocheted Nesting Xups by Lorajean’s Magazine. They’re perfect for buttons, thread, candy?
And while we’re talking about sweets, two recipes from Joy the Baker….

And now a small rehash from the archives….

Last year, Ruffles and Stuff and I combined for an entire month to Celebrate MOM. Here are a few from the series (with links to the entire celebration at the bottom)
