Mother’s Day Craft

When I was a little girl, I was always making crafts for my mum, and she absolutely loved them.  When I look back, the crafts were never that flash, but that wasn’t really the point.

The fact that I had made something for her and put my personal touch onto it, was what made the gift special.

As we grow up, we are are led to believe that we have to buy our mums bigger and better gifts each year.

As a mum myself now, I have come to realize that those simple crafts that I made my mum were the most treasured.  After all, my mum still has gifts that I made her when I was 8 or 9, but you can be guaranteed she doesn’t still have things I bought her when I was 25!

So this year for mothers day, we are going back to basics and looking at some Mother’s Day Craft – A Jar full of love!

Over Valentines you may remember my post about the Valentines Day love jar.  This was a very popular post, mainly because it was a homemade gift idea, but also one that was full of love.  So, I decided to reinvent this and make one just for Mother’s Day.

You will be able to print all the printable’s at the end of this post and make your mum your very own Mother’s Day Craft.

All you will need is to grab yourself a gorgeous little jar, choose some ribbon and print off the labels.  How easy is that?!

Punch a hole through the jar label, thread your chosen ribbon through it and tie it to the jar.

Next is the most important part, this is the part that you need to give some care and attention to!

Spend some time thinking about all the things that you love about your mum, then write them down for her one by one and place them in the jar.

I bet this will be one of your mum’s most treasured gifts and all it will have cost you is a jar, some ribbon, but most importantly….your time and effort!

Do you think your mum would like to receive a gift like this?

What about yourself…how would you feel if one of your children gave you this beautiful jar on Mother’s Day?

I think it will bring tears to a lot of mum’s eyes.

It’s not very often we hear how much we are loved and to receive a jar FULL of all the reasons why we are loved is an incredibly special gift.

I hope all you mum’s have a wonderful Mother’s Day 🙂

    Aww… What a gorgeous idea! I would love this gift. Will have to remember this for next year and maybe get the kids to do it for each of their Nanas.

      I gave this to my mum for Mother’s Day and she absolutely loved it. She said it was one of the most precious gifts she had received 🙂 That would be a beautiful thing for the kids to do for their Nanas, i’m sure it would be a treasured gift 🙂
