Are you looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas? Have you considered making a gift made with your own two hands? Mother’s absolutely love flowers and they love thoughtful gestures, which is why a Mother’s Day wreath makes a perfect gift! And we’re going to show you how to make a Mother’s Day wreath, easy as pie.
Mother’s Day is such a wonderful opportunity to honour the mothers your life, whether that’s your own mother, your mother-in-law, stepmother, spouse, friends, or anyone who is a mom who is special to you. For everything that mothers do to care and nurture, they certainly deserve recognition. Small gestures like making a Mother’s Day gift with your own two hands is just one little way to show how much you care.
Why DIY Mother’s Day Gifts Rock
While there are lots of Mothers Day gift ideas–like jewellery, a bouquet of fresh flowers, gift certificates to a favourite brunch spot or a spa–there’s nothing that shows your appreciation quite like a gift you took the time to make yourself.
We might be biased, but we actually think a homemade DIY wreath is the PERFECT Mother’s Day gift. It ticks all the boxes! You make it with your own two hands, it can and often includes flowers – a Mother’s Day MUST – it beautifies a home, and it makes a mom feel so special. Plus, when you use our UITC Wreath Boards, you get gorgeous results every time! You mom will love it!
Personalize your Mother’s Day Gift
Before you get started creating your DIY Mother’s Day wreath, ask yourself a few questions to get the ideas flowing and guide your wreath making. For instance, what are your mom’s favourite flowers? What are her favourite colours? Does she have any special interests that would be fun to tie into the theme of her wreath? Where will she likely want to hang the wreath, on her front door, indoors as home decor, on a gate or in the backyard? The answers to these questions will help set you on the right path.
If you think your mom would like to hang her wreath on her front door for all to see, be sure consider the colour of her door when making your Mother’s Day wreath. What colours would look best against her door? Choosing a contrasting colour could help the wreath to stand out. For a front door wreath, your mom will feel so proud with the wreath on display and will be able to tell her neighbours all about how you made it for her.
Once you’ve brainstormed some basic ideas, it’s time to start making your Mother’s Day wreath!
