Give Mom a Mother's Day DIY

Homemade Mother’s Day gifts are as old at the holiday itself. But this year, instead of adding to Mom’s macaroni necklace collection, consider making her something beautiful for her home. With these impressively easy-to-make projects, for once it will be more than just the thought that counts.


This fun project gives new life to vintage lace doilies. Ask Mom before you use hers or pick some up at a thrift store. Then, all you need are a few supplies and a little time before your bowls are ready for gifting. For an extra treat, fill them up with chocolate or something else Mom loves.

All you need is a long nylon cord and some scissors. We’ll show you how to knot it up to create a handy holder for Mom’s new plant.
