With Mother’s Day coming up, many of us here at 46 & Spruce are trying to select the perfect kind of gift for our moms this year. For a more personal touch, we have decided to DIY a Mother’s Day gift instead of scouring department stores to buy them.
DIY-ing Mother’s Day gifts is not only economical, it’s incredibly satisfying to make something with your own two hands. Not to mention, the joy the recipient receives from a gift handmade just for them. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
If making a Mother’s day gift for your mom this year sounds like something you’d like to try, we have come up with a whole list of mason jar and terrarium DIY ideas for crafting something really beautiful she’s sure to love.
Mason Jar Gifts
First stop, mason jar gifts. Anyone who claims to be a DIY-er has done at a least one of these before, and we are no exception. We love using these gorgeous Vintage Jardin Jars, which come in cute colors, for our Mother’s day gift.
Here’s our list of top Mother’s Day DIY mason jar gifts:
Mason Jar Vase
The first, and probably the most obvious, is a vase crafted out of a mason jar. This can be used to display a beautiful bouquet of Mother’s Day flowers. All this craft takes is a little jar decoration and some flowers, either freshly picked or bought. Whatever you choose, a beautiful vase full of flowers will make her day.
Fairy Light Jars
Fairy light jars are an incredibly popular DIY project that can be created with two simple items, a jar and some string lights. These stunning jars can be used in place of candles or night lights in a living room, sunroom, or a little one’s bedroom.
For Mother’s Day, try grouping a series of fairy light jars together to create a beautiful mason jar centerpiece. This would be perfect for decorating the dining table or for lining the length of a picnic table.
To create a fairy light jar, all you need is a mason jar and some battery powered fairy lights. Then, place the battery pack at the bottom of the jar. Cover the battery pack with a little moss or filler so it’s out of sight, arrange the fairy lights inside the jar and you’re done!
