So what do you get the woman who has everything? More craft supplies of course! The staple craft supplies are always in high demand, so why not get a few more?
Did I mention to put them on a wreath?
Floral wreaths are lovely but a wreath full of craft supplies is the best! Here's how to make it:
Step One: Buy a Styrofoam wreath at the craft store. Paint it with acrylic paint.
Step Two: Attach ribbon, fabric, beads, glue sticks, and more! Yep. That's it. Two steps.
If you want your mother to be able to actually use the pieces, only add a dab of glue to the very ends of the ribbon.
For the fabric, simply roll it into a flower-like shape and PIN down. This way she can unroll it and use it- glue free!
I chose to keep the ribbon on the spool (just for looks) and made a hanging loop from it.
To keep the acrylic paint from falling off, apply a line of glue down it's backside and stick to the wreath.
For some reason or another I haven't quite jumped aboard the "washi tape train" yet. However, look at this beautiful print! I thought mom would love to give this a try.
Each piece is glued, pinned or (in the washi tape's case) laying carefully upon the wreath but should be able to easily be taken off and used later. Small purple jewelry beads were taken apart and glued around the wreath for decoration. The great thing about hot glue is that it comes right off of stuff like this!
I'm going to try to run over to mom's house and give this to her early before she reads this post! No amount of craft items can express my gratitude to my mother. She's always been there for me and not only has she been a stellar mom but she has truly been my best friend. I couldn't imagine going a day without talking to her or a season of my life without her. I am who I am because of my mother. I love you mom!
