Mother's Day is right around the corner and when my sisters and I were coming up with gift ideas for our mom we decided to put together a cute DIY for her. We will still be gifting her a makeup item, that is pretty pricey, but with the little bit of budget we had left we decided to make something for her. Our mom always talks about how the handmade gifts we made her as children have always been the most special. This Mother's Day we really want to Make Her Day the best, so we decided to put something we've made together for her, as part of her gift. With a handmade DIY and the cutest American Greetings card, gift bag and paper, we have made mom something she will really enjoy.
DIY Tile/Marble Tray
You will need:
piece of marble or tile
industrial strength glue
2 cute knobs (drawer pulls)
4 clear bumpers
For the perfume tray I visited my local hardware store and looked through the marble and tile pieces available. I decided to go with a piece of tile that matches my moms makeup counter and two really cute round knobs. The tile cost under $3 and the knobs were about $5 a piece. As you can see, this DIY is definitely affordable. I already had the glue and bumpers from a previous DIY but those will cost about $4-$5 a piece. Now let's put it all together, it's just a few easy steps.
apply the 4 bumpers to the corners of the tile
measure out where the knobs will go
glue knobs and place where wanted
clean up glue with a damp qtip
allow to dry for a few hours
In just a few quick steps we now have a very cute perfume tray for mom. My mom actually has a lot of perfumes, but there are three that are her special ones, these are the ones that she displays on top of her makeup area. The tray fits them all perfectly and is going to look really nice on her makeup shelf.
To complete her gift we went to Walmart to pick up some gift wrap and a card. Even with our tighter budget, we want to include a really cute bag and tissue paper. With American Greetings, we were able to find the perfect card along with a matching bag and tissue paper. This bag was only $2.99 and the tissue paper was .99. Is that a bargain or what? And the bag alone looks like it was expensive!
I don't know about you, but I am not about paying over five dollars for a greeting card, I was so happy to see how low the entire American Greetings line is. We didn't have to buy the budget card and bag, which we usually have to do, instead we purchased exactly what we wanted and spent so little. You can take advantage of the Ibotta offer (buy 2 cards and earn $2) and get an even better bargain.
This Mother's Day DIY was a lot of fun to put together and it was easy and not expensive at all. I hope that this idea has inspired you to make something for your mom this Mother's Day too. It's all about making her day special really, not about what we can buy her. While my sisters and I are still giving my mom a larger gift, this DIY a special gift from us to her as a throw back to when we were all little and made her handmade gifts.
What are you giving your mom this Mother's Day?
