Homemade & From the Heart

Updated: May 8

Hello Gardeners!


We may be losing track of what day it is, but we certainly cannot forget that Mother's Day is coming up! And because this Spring has been *slightly* different than years previous, let's make it as special as we possibly can! Whether you are celebrating Mom, Grandma, or a maternal figure in your life - there are so many ways to honor the women we love.



Start with a homemade card.


Here is a fool-proof, flower stamp card!



All you'll need is:

A straw or piece of string (or something similar!)

Cardboard

Tissue paper

Tape

Paint


First, cut your cardboard piece in half. Next, tape your straw or string onto one piece of your cardboard so that it resembles a flower stem. On the other piece of cardboard, tape small pieces of paper so that it forms a textured circle.



Then, paint your "stem" green and stamp on a folded piece of paper. After that, dip or paint your textured tissue paper circle in a bright color of paint and stamp that piece on the top of the stem.



Allow your stamped paper to dry and be sure to write a nice note to Mom inside OR make her a bunch and give to her as a Mother's Day gift!

Make her breakfast

Help give Mom the day of relaxation she deserves. Whether that means giving her a day to put up her feet, letting her choose how the whole family spends the day, or helping her create the day SHE wants - it's all about her!



Happy Mother's Day gardeners! Stay positive, #TheFutureIsBright!
