Mother’s Day is this weekend here in the USA. With the situation we’re going through right now most stores are closed. That makes it very difficult to shop last minute.

When was the last time you made something for your mom? Elementary school?

Do you remember what it was?

Making Mom a handmade gift isn’t just for kids. Adults can get in on the fun and special memories, too.

And I bet Mom will love it!

Here’s some quick and easy DIY’s for Mother’s Day that you can make yourself!

6 Quick & Easy DIY’s for Mother’s Day

Vintage Mailbox with Flowers

Upcycled Mailbox Planter

Instead of giving mom a bouquet of flowers in a vase, think outside the box and put them in a vintage mailbox instead. You can easily upcycle an old mailbox that you have laying around collecting dust. Just give the mailbox a fresh coat of paint and fill it with flowers for a quick and easy DIY for Mother’s Day.
